A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
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
Alejandro G. Iñárritu defended himself against reports that the production spun out of control, claiming that it was understood from the beginning that the project would be expensive, and that most of the over-budget costs came from schedule delays due to weather. See more »
Glass is attacked by a grizzly bear with her two cubs. But the film is set at a time of year when a grizzly bear (especially a mother bear with cubs) would be in hibernation: early- to mid-winter. We know this is the time of year because of the weather, and the drinking scene midway through the film, when Captain Henry says to Fitzgerald, "Happy New Year."
The real-life Hugh Glass was mauled by a mother bear around May, 1823 - a time of year when bears are far less likely to be in hibernation. See more »
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.

At the end of the end credits: "The making and authorized distribution of this film supported over 15,000 jobs and involved hundreds of thousands of work hours." See more »
Majority of the film you'll watch Leonardo Di Caprio run through the wilderness. It has its appeal, but it does also get old. The scenes with Tom Hardy were long awaited but overall the film served its purpose...getting Di Caprio his long awaited Oscar.
