While exploring uncharted wilderness in 1823, legendary frontiersman Hugh Glass sustains injuries from a brutal bear attack. When his hunting team leaves him for dead, Glass must utilize his survival skills to find a way back home while avoiding natives on their own hunt. Grief-stricken and fueled by vengeance, Glass treks through the wintry terrain to track down John Fitzgerald, the former confidant who betrayed and abandoned him. Written by Jwelch5742

Goofs

It's winter time and Hugh Glass spends a lot of time in and out of very cold water. At one point, he takes an extended trip down stream with most of his body under water (at times, he is completely submerged). While he might have survived a bear mauling, it is very unlikely that Glass could have survived hypothermia emerging from cold water to freezing or near freezing temperatures. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Hugh Glass: [in pawnee] It's okay son... I know you want this to be over. I'm right here. I will be right here... But you don't give up. You hear me? As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing.

A true masterpiece
21 February 2021 | by autosales-32174See all my reviews

I watched this in hdr on my big screen tv. Another awesome movie by the great magician DiCaprio. Without spoiling it for those that haven't seen it yet, the bear fight is unbelievable, like nothing I've ever seen before, with all the gore and movie magic, I will take extra care and stay away from bears although we have none in Australia.
