Well thats the last heavy award winning film we're seeing! After films like The Artist and Lost in Translation, these artsy farty films obviously don't agree with us. This film was soooo long and drawn out, with hardly anything going on. Basically a story of a man (DiCaprio) left for dead after a fairly gruesome bear attack and his journey back to revenge the death of his son. Set in the wild frontier of the 1820s, its a time of survival and pillaging the locals for fur pelts to try and make a living. After the bear attack and loss of their boat, DiCaprio's hunting party are left dragging him across the wilderness and make the decision to leave him to die. His injuries are so severe that is just seems ridiculous that he doesn't just die from infections. But no, you have about 2hrs of him grunting and dragging himself through the snow, working upto a hobble, eating practically anything edible.
