In the early 1800's, a group of fur trappers and Indian traders are returning with their goods to civilisation and are making a desperate attempt to beat the oncoming winter. When guide Zachary Bass is injured in a bear attack, they decide he's a goner and leave him behind to die. When he recovers instead, he swears revenge on them and tracks them and their paranoiac expedition leader down. Written by
The reason John Bindon has next to no screen time in the film is because The producers had him fired in the early stages in shooting after he and Richard Harris had a fight. His lines were given to other actors. See more »
There is a closeup (two, possibly) of the younger of the two men who were left with Zach Bass. They are hiding from the Indians, before Bass is left for dead. He is looking down the barrel of his flintlock musket (or rifle) and there is no flint in the cock, which would make it impossible for the arm to fire. See more »

This movie is based on a true incident that occurred in the life of mountain man Jim Bridger. He was a young man on a fur trading trip when an older mountain man, Hugh Glass, was attacked by a grizzly bear and left for dead. Glass lived and did not seek revenge but forgave Bridger. In this movie Hugh Glass is called Zach Bass.
I think this film is a glimpse into a world of the loneliness and adventure from a different time. Zach Bass secretly watches an Indian woman give birth while her husband waits. The joy that the husband shows upon the birth of his son is a contrast with Zach's own memories of how his own wife died in childbirth. Zach has given his child to his dead wife's mother to raise. At the end of the film it is clear that Zach is going to see his son.
The other scene that stands out is when he catches a rabbit in a snare and treats it as a pet and companion but later has to eat the rabbit to survive.
The soundtrack is perfect. This is a great film that deserves to be seen.
