The Revenant

If in the next series of 'I'm A Celebrity In A Jungle, Why Are You Watching?' they forced contestants to slowly drag themselves through snow to get to the part where they eat unusual parts of animals, then they'd be part way to being just like The Revenant. Throw in a bit of half-hearted mysticism and some mutterings along the lines of 'Ooh, weren't white folk naughty to those Indians' and they'd be almost all the way there. Make the whole thing an example of empty technical virtuosity and they'd have nailed it.


  1. A brutal, gruelling survival story told through the prism of a revenge story against the backdrop of the white man stealing America from its natives. Stunning!

  2. I guess you liked it then Al?

    1. Not hugely. I'm prepared to be the minority of one though.

  3. I enjoyed it immensely. Perhaps the story is a little done before, but the spectacle is something else.
