Checking Out the Movie THE REVENANT

We rented  the movie THE REVENANT.  It was very much a tense thriller of surviving and revenge.  Good movie.
It stars Leonardo DiCaprio.  It was  directed, co-produced and co-written by Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The screenplay by Iñárritu and Mark Hugh Glass - ‎Kristoffer Joner 
It is roughly about hunters and fur trappers someplace in the northwest United States probably around the early 1800s.  They were fighting the Indians and treating them like animals. Leonardo DiCaprio was mauled by an angry bear.  The hunting party had to move on with a few men left  to care for  Leonardo who was sure to die.  After a few days he was literally snuffed out, or was thought to have been stuffed out anyway, and was buried.  He dug his self out the grave and lived on nature by surviving skills.  He was out for revenge.  One of the men left behind killed his son.
It was a good movie.  Don't expect surprises, just adrenaline pumping exciting.

I think it is based on a true story.

It would have helped if we had Googled REVENANT beforehand.   But I waited until now.  Here is what REVENANT is according to Wikipedia:

A REVENANT is a visible ghost or animated corpse that is believed to have returned from the grave to terrorize the living.
