A Little about the Story- The Revenant Movie Review
The Revenant is a story of a person who literally comes back from death after surviving a lot of grating conditions. The story takes time back to 1823 when a crew of trappers were hunting pelts on the land of US territories under the leadership of Captain Andrew Henry. The crew was attacked by Arikara Native Americans and their men were slaughtered brutally. Still, some of the trappers still survived, including their captain Andrew Henry, lead guide Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio), and John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy) as they cleverly rode onto their boats.
But Hugh Glass recommends the crew complete the rest of the journey on foot to Fort Kiowa as the Arikara tribe will easily catch them if they continue their journey by boat. Captain Andrew Henry agrees with Hugh Glass and he commands the crew to carry whatever pelts they can carry and leave the rest of the pelts so that they can take them after bringing more of their soldiers.
But many men, including John Fitzgerald, were not happy with the captain’s decision and he was particularly antagonistic towards Hugh Glass and his half-native son Hawk. Fitzgerald thought that Hugh Glass was trying to kill the crew but Captain Henry just ordered the crew to follow Hugh Glass’s instructions as he had more experience in the native lands. So the whole crew agreed to Henry’s decision and decided to walk.
During their camp, while Glass was trying to hunt something for their meal, he was brutally attacked by a bear. Even though he fought with the bear and managed to kill it with his knife, he was severely wounded and was literally near death. When the crew found Hugh Glass’ wounded body, they could not kill him as they thought all of them owe their lives to glass. So rather than killing Glass, they decided to take Glass with them on a sled.
But when the crew finds it impossible to carry Glass any further, Captain Henry offers a prize of $3000. Glass’s son Hawk and Jim Bridger volunteered themselves to remain with Glass, and after refusing their shares of the money, Fitzgerald also decided to remain with Glass for the rest of the shares. But Henry takes promise from Fitzgerald to stay with Glass till his last breath and after Glass’s death give him a proper funeral. But Fitzgerald manages to convince Glass to kill Glass and save his son from any further problems. While he was trying to kill Glass, Hawk walked in and started to fight with Fitzgerald and got killed. Glass could do nothing to save his son and he watched his son’s death helplessly.
Fitzgerald quickly buried the body of Hawk and when Bridger returned to the camp, he convinced Bridger that Hawk was lost and Glass was dead and abandoned Glass half dead. But even then Glass manages to drag himself out of there and makes his way down to the water stream. Meanwhile, Bridger felt guilty for leaving Glass out there while they were going to Fort Kiowa. But Fitzgerald cleverly convinced him that whatever they did was right. After reaching Fort Kiowa they told Captain that Glass was dead and Hawk was killed by Arikara.
Glass swims across the current of the river and meets a friendly Pawnee who shares his meeting with Glass. This gave Glass little strength and he managed to complete the rest of the journey facing a number of harsh weather conditions. At Fort Kiowa, a French hunter arrives who has lost the rest of the crew and is starving. So Henry offered him food and shelter after interrogating him. While the hunter was eating, Henry found that he was carrying Glass’s water flask. He asked him about the place where he had found the flask. So he and his crew could go there and find Glass. The hunter told them about the place and their crew went for the search of Glass.
Fitzgerald knew that if Glass were found alive, he would be punished for his crime, so he left Kiowa. The crew found Glass very soon and they brought him back to Kiowa where Henry decided to punish Bridger and Fitzgerald. But he could not find Fitzgerald so he decided to go on searching for him and kill him. Glass asked Henry so that he could also join in this mission as he wanted revenge on Fitzgerald. After a long search, they managed to find Fitzgerald but Fitzgerald cleverly killed Henry but he could not survive the fight in front of Glass. And in the end, Glass killed Fitzgerald.
