Default Bear attack - The Revenant Movie

It was unbelievable scene ...

We all know and read how to be bear aware, but when you see this you will be frightened to the core! I know, it a movie but ...

Looking forward to this film, even with the bear attack (it's a phobia of mine)..

I heard a lot of the scene is CGI.

Saw film yesterday. Cinematography was incredible. Great shots of the Rockies, Alberta. Based on true story of Hugh Glass, a 19th century trapper who traveled miles through the wilderness in pursuit of vengeance against the men who left him for dead after he was mauled by a bear. It is a mix of fact and fiction. Historical dress and weapons are right on. Most all scenes were staged, acted in outdoor settings. If you are a fan of this genre of film, you won't be disappointed. I thought di Caprio's acting was worthy of Oscar recognition as is the film.

Update: Best dramatic picture, best actor drama, best director Golden Globes.

I thought this film was excellent and was happy it did well at the Globes last night. The bear scene is incredible and scary.

Finally went to see this movie too... I also thought it was excellent. I liked how the light was set... always dark-ish, gloomy, very little color, sun low through these aspens -- all designed to paint overall atmosphere. Bear scene is unreal, but there are several other real gross scenes (could not watch when he digs out horse insides so he can "zip" himself in to protect from cold).

Only remark is that after such a mauling there was no way person could recover; and he was jumping over on horses, sliding down waterfalls and who knows what else after a 'healthy' meal of bone marrow he sucked from that skeleton.

Was surprised to learn after that parts were presumably filmed in Patagonia (thought it was all Canada while in theater)

The Star Wars version is so famous that you can even get a Tauntaun sleeping bag

Agreed, that was keeping me from full enjoyment of the movie as well.. A week ago (even several weeks ago) he could barely walk and has an impaired airway and now his wounds are scarred over and he's running?


And yeah, apparently both the "Hateful Eight" and "The Revenant" film crews were fighting for locations in Alberta that had snow on the ground! They eventually had to go elsewhere.. LOL


That avalanche is real.. They triggered one with explosives, and ironically it is the scene that is getting ripped on for extraneous and unbelievable CGI.

Yeah, I heard too snow was an issue. Considering it is end of January and it is raining in the Rockies right now...

Didn't know about avalanche; it looked totally natural. I've actually seen releases like this live - this is my pic from early June last year (looked better few seconds ago, but till I got my camera out...)

Haven't seen the movie yet, but thought this article about the bear attack was really interesting!

The sow in the bear attack scene was a 1/2 too large ....
Characteristics of a G-bear attack were excellent.


There are a few glaring errors in the film ...... can you find them ?

We saw the movie last night. Holy was that scene well made. Freaked me right out. I agree though, there's no way anyone could survive such an attack under the conditions they were in back then, let alone recover so quickly to be able to do the things he did afterwards.

Well made though and Leo deserved that Oscar.

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.
