4K UHD review...

This movie was shot in 6.5k and 3.5k. The digital intermediary (DI) was done in 4k. The video, although creatively darker, is reference quality. The audio is Dolby True with excellent sound design. The rear speakers are in constant use. No Dolby Atmos track but the TrueHD track is excellent. If you calibrate your 4K setup to this disc, most of your others should look good. Remember to make sure any receiver youre using has HDMI 2.0a and upgrade to 18GB HDMI cables. Don't use your old high speed cables. They likely max out at 10GB.

GREAT MOVIE - A WORK OF ART MEANT TO BE SEEN SEVERAL TIMES - EACH TIME SEEING MORE DETAILS ! ! !
Verified purchase
What a movie !!! It is an absolute work of art. The people who say it is dark, moody and depressing should not be watching it at all. It does an excellent job of portraying life in the wilderness in the 1800's of men who trapped furs for a living and lived a very raw life just to survive. I honestly do not know how Leonardo DiCaprio ever managed to live through this movie while it was being made - I was frozen the whole time and felt like I was right there with him & the other trappers and Indians. Life back then was horrible and for the men that chose trapping in the wild during the time that Indians stalked everywhere; they really had a rough life. Eating raw fish & meat and even rotten food was just the way they had to take it sometimes, to survive. The Cinematographer Lubezki and the Director Alejandro certainly deserved awards for their skills and talents. I am going to look up the movie "Man in the Wilderness" with Richard Harris just to compare how the story was portrayed differently. This is an incredible movie, which certainly entertained me, even if it was hard to believe that the main character could survive so many unbelievable threats to his life!

When in the mood for a "downer" movie
Verified purchase
I don't know what I thought this movie was going to be about. I vaguely knew about a bear and Di Caprio being left for dead. This movie did have those things but it wasn't what I thought it would be. There's a despicable character, a nearly super human character, and lots of tragedy and woe throughout. Overall, you just end your evening, wishing you might have picked a more up-beat movie.

Pros: Good acting. Believable tragedies.

Cons: Believable tragedies - you'd rather not watch this for "entertainment". The resolution of the movie isn't as satisfying as Gladiator, though the storyline is a little similar. There's no humor to break up the piling tragedies. There's aren't any soft moments. Just some torture, some rape, lots of cruelty.

Simply stunning!
Verified purchase
I don't buy movies, but after renting this movie twice, I bought it. It's one of the most stunning movies I've seen. The cinematography leaves me breathless. It's one of those movies where you lose all sense of yourself and fall into. I watched it a couple of years ago and couldn't get it out of my head. I finally talked myself into buying the darn movie. I've seen it 3 times now and I literally sit there slack-jawed for 2 1/2 hrs, mesmerized by every detail. The Revenant is now on my list of jaw-dropping films, and I'm keeping an eye out for more films by Alejandro González Iñárritu.

The only other films that have affected me this way are Apocalypse Now, Baraka, & A New World. When I first saw The Revenant, it reminded me of a Terrance Malik film, one of my favorite directors. After I made the purchase, I found out the cinematographer for A New World, Emmanuel Lubezki, is also the cinematographer on this film. hmmm...I guess I have a "type" when it comes to film aesthetic. I thoroughly enjoyed the natural light, natural settings, natural sounds, and snake like slither of the camera. The wide lens feels like I'm there inside the scene and it's not staged. The breath on the camera lens was a nice touch. I tend to enjoy films without a lot of dialogue and a great score, too, so if you're into that film style, you'll love this movie. The story is remarkable and completely brutal. The film is magnificent; a true work of art.

DiCaprio insanely awesome performance in this film
Verified purchase
When I first heard about this film online after the casting was announced and what the movie was going to be about, I was shocked! However, I was also excited to see how the director and DiCaprio will pull this off. Saw this film in theaters and was blown away by how authentic the early days were because this movie puts you RIGHT inside the movie. You can feel yourself immersed in the scene during the film.

Leo DiCaprio was absolutely AMAZING and made his role believable through the lens of the camera. If you read/watch some of the behind the scene stuff online then you'll be shocked at some of the things he did in the film to make it more real. For example, in one scene we see DiCaprio character eating RAW bison liver! I won't say why but you'll see why when you watch the movie. I still re-watch this movie every other month and I'm always finding something new in the film that I didn't see the previous time I watched it. This film is totally worth owning.

Suck up every minute of it
Verified purchase
Proof that the director has reached the level of master craftsman. This movie is two and half hours and is a true experience. You will leave exhausted. Don't go because you have a free Sunday afternoon. I saw this on the big screen and was speechless. I then waited ten months until I watched it again on my big screen tv. Also, don't pull out your big brain and try to figure it out. There's nothing to figure out. The message of the movie is stated within the first five minutes and, if you forget, is repeated in the last few seconds--- survive. The rest is spectacle and imagery. Suck up every minute of it. You will be hypnotized and then violently shaken out of your hypnosis every fifteen minutes or so. You will watch scenes that you know do not exist anymore but somehow you're watching it. FEEL do not THINK,or this movie will mean nothing to you.

Almost a documentary in every apect of it
Verified purchase
What can I say, this is a stunning audiovisual experience and the story...there are multiple themes in this movie but the main theme and the centre of the movie is, I believe, the filial relationship, a son murdered and a father willing to revenge him but in the end he realizes that all revenge leaves is emptiness inside you, in addition the making of the movie on the bluray disc is fantastic, 5 stars also for this documentary. THE REVENANT is a magnificent movie and proves that LEONARDO DiCAPRIO is the best actor in the world nowadays. He deserves the Oscar. Strongly recommended.

good movie, 4k quality image
Verified purchase
This is a very long movie that could have been condensed, but I guess it helps to create a sense of how long the protagonist struggled for survival in this story. The movie can be a little repetitive at times, but overall a good movie and worth watching. Especially if you enjoy movies where a protagonist struggles through challenges. The picture quality on the 4k version is very detailed and is a reference quality example of what a 4k movie should look like. Details are really evident in being able to see things like threads in fabric or being able to determine the type of material something is made out of by the fine details. Overall a good flic and really great example of what 4k detail can look like.
