Hugh Glass isn’t afraid to die. He’s done it once already.
Rocky Mountains, 1823. The trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Hugh Glass is one of the most respected men in the company, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker.But when a scouting mission puts Glass face-to-face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. Two men from the company are ordered to remain with him until his inevitable death. But, fearing an imminent attack, they abandon Glass, stripping him of his prized rifle and hatchet.
As Glass watches the men flee, he is driven to survive by one all-consuming desire: revenge. With shocking grit and determination, he sets out on a three-thousand-mile journey across the harsh American frontier, to seek revenge on the men who betrayed him.
The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.

Movie could outshine the book

For starters I haven't seen the film - yet. It's on my list and the book hasn't changed my resolve to see it.

The Revenant focuses on one man and the tough environment he finds himself abandoned in. The setup is good, the characters are believable and the plot is solid but for whatever reason I found myself disappointed with the sum of the parts. Perhaps the build up was better than the climax and thus left me feeling like it could have ended better.

Something Hollywood might address?

Book before the film

I made the mistake of listening to this book prior to watching the film. Consequently the film barely held my attention! The bonus superb, particularly the authors noted st the end telling the truth behind the story.
