The Revenant Review

The Revenant

4.25 / 5

Intensely brilliant.

The frontrunner to win numerous awards at The Oscars (nominated for 12) in a few weeks time, The Revenant is an intensely brilliant film that will grip viewers in the opening sequence, and never let go. A thoroughly thrilling story of revenge and a father’s pursuit of delivering justice to the man responsible for taking the one thing that matters most to him. DiCaprio and Hardy are brilliant in their respective roles of this semi-autobiographical film, which will leave your jaw on the floor.

The Wolf of Wall Street 4.5 / 5

Absolutely awesome! The film raced by at an electrifying speed which reflected the style in which Jordan Belfort lived his life. Drugs, sex and money were the central themes of Belfort’s life, and his exciting and crazy shenanigans during his time on Wall Street are unbelievable.

The film glamourises Belfort’s money-laundering and securities fraud that ensured his lifestyle of wild parties, limitless supplies of drugs, dwarf-tossing competitions, and stripper stampedes. And despite the fact that the victims and justice are not given much coverage, no-one would seem to care though, as DiCaprio plays the ‘bad guy’ exceptionally well, with his schemes and scams celebrated in his offices at Stratton Oakmont and in the cinema.

After watching this film you would have wished you could have experienced this sort of lifestyle even if it were just one day!
