IMDB's summary: "Left for dead by members of his hunting team after being mauled by a bear, and betrayed by his confidant John Fitzgerald, Hugh Glass sets off on an incredible path to redemption. Journeying across a vicious landscape and in great turmoil, Glass pushes his body and spirit to breaking-point."
My thoughts: I have two words for you: "HOLY SHIT!" I should just leave my review at that, take it as you will...but I won't cuz people need to know. Go see this movie! Truly. I did have to look away & close my eyes during the bear mauling scene, it was horrible. This guy literally went through Hell & back. No jokes. Amazing story with a lot of heart & emotion behind it. You felt everything Glass felt throughout the movie.
I knew before this movie what an amazing actor that Leo is, but this movie just proves that this man deserves an goddamn Oscar already. He's just fantastic. & I'm not just saying that because he's my husband's man crush but he really is a great actor & if anyone says differently, they have not seen him. He's awesome!
With that being said, I think that Tom Hardy did even better than Leo (sorry, Leo). Tom was unrecognizable at some points & he just played his character so well, even down to his voice & the way he carried himself. Simply amazing. Although, at one point, he did sound a little like Bane & that made my heart happy. Ha! This guy damn well better get an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor cuz...well, wow!
