It's been a long time since an actor has impressed me to the extent that Leonardo Decaprio has in his latest offering "The Revenant".
Literally meaning " back from the dead", the revenant is the story of survival of a pelt trader of the 1820s called Glass who gets left alone in the middle of a snow covered forest after being attacked by a bear. His urge to take revenge from a fellow traveler keeps him alive and motivates him to first fight death and then survive the harshest of conditions in order to avenge the death of his son and the betrayal that he faced.
Leonardo Decaprio leaves one speechless at times and the acting is so lifelike that one forgets for a while that it's Leo playing Glass.
Tom Hardy does well to support Leo as the antagonist but it is Decaprio who leaves very little margin for anyone else to leave a mark on the viewers mind. To me the only other member of the cast that had an impact on my senses was the bear that mauled Glass and left him helpless.
Overall, i believe and hope that Leonardo Decaprio gets an Oscar for this because if this doesn't get him one nothing might ever.
