The Revenant has been directed in a splendid manner. The acting is superb with Di Caprio leading the way. The acting adds depth to the characters as the story traverses. However, the plot is the not the one that made me think about watching the film again. Nonetheless, I liked it a lot and would suggest that you watch it too.
