Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT captures one man's epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.
|nudity||Within the first ten minutes of the film, a blurred naked man is seen dying from a distance. His genitals are very difficult to make out and you see his butt covered in blood. Not very graphic and is in no way sexual. A few dead bodies are found without clothing. A man's buttocks are partially seen in one scene, although it isn't intended to be sexual. A man is seen raping a woman from behind. He is thrusting into her for about three seconds and is stopped. No nudity in this scene. Afterwards, the woman claims that she will cut the man's testicles off, and we later see him with blood on his hands and around his crotch area. A few other mild sexual references.|
|violence||An attack on a frontier camp by Native Americans transpires. With long, sustained shots, the violence is quite strong. Numerous individuals are pierced by arrows, stabbed, clubbed and shot and many dead bodies are seen. A Native American village is attacked and burned to the ground. A number of Native Americans are killed, and some are seen burning to death. During a long, uninterrupted tracking shot that lasts for several minutes (which is one of the movie's most famous scenes), a man is mauled by a hungry grizzly bear, although he survives. He is bitten, thrown/dragged around, crushed, and clawed at by the animal. The bear is shot and we see the extremely gory aftermath of the attack. This includes the man's body covered in gory, realistic looking bruises and slashes as he screams in pain. The man finally manages to stab the bear on the head, killing it. A child is stabbed. Some blood is seen. A horse is graphically eviscerated. A scalped man is seen briefly. A woman is briefly raped. See the Sex and Nudity section. A knife-fight breaks out between two men, in which both participants endure stab wounds and severed body parts. A few other violent scenes, but nothing as inappropriate as the scenes listed above.|
|profanity||About 10 uses of the word "f...". 3 uses of "Son of a bitch" A few uses of "Shit" "Damn" and "hell" Derogatory terms for Native Americans are often used (tree niggers). >=1 use of Jesus/Christ A man makes obscene gestures and states that he wants a woman with "big tits."|
|alcohol||Several men drink throughout the film. A man smokes from a pipe in several different scenes.|
|frightening||The main character is often shown in great agony as he overcomes crippling wounds, hunger, cold, and pain to find the man who left him for dead. The ambush scene at the beginning and the fight at the end are full of brutal violence that goes on for several minutes.|
