I tried very hard to find the entertainment value in this flick, but it was impossible. Excruiatingly slow with some of the silliest scene ever committed to the screen. So vastly over-rated that I find it difficult to understand why it was ever nominated for an Oscar.

Overrated and extremely dull. Hollywood has no imagination anymore.

A ridiculous movie. If anything bad could have happened to the hero it did! It got laughable. I gave up the movie when he fell off the cliff and survived. Apart from that, the cinematography and acting were outstanding given the quality of the script.

This may be a gruesome movie; but it is extremely well made. Blood, flesh, and guts throughout the cinematography! Not for the idealistic viewer.... But, the story line shows how some indigenous tribes - and some frontiersmen - were despicable people. While others were peaceful and simply trying to make a new life for themselves and their families. Don't watch this if you only like happy endings....

A lot of unbelievable things happen in this movie, once I got past that still a brutal film of survival.

brutality was real...and the scenery was gorgeous. Leanardo was good at grunting and gasping....movie itself was fairly mind-numbing since not much goes on besides violence...

Brutally grim.
If your life is too wonderful, just watch this movie to sober up.
At times, the sheer harshness of everything almost has a sort of beauty.
And the graphic realism of the action sequences is excellent.

Absolutely awful , i watched it all hoping it would get at least a little realistic but no, he would have died off hypothermia a dozen times, spent most of the movie in the water

Frightening or Intense Scenes: One of the most suspenseful films I have ever seen.

Sexual Content: A brief rape--not graphic at all.

Violence: Brutal and gritty. Not terribly gory but the sheer grittiness will make you cringe. The ending scene is quite gory with two men stabbing, hacking, strangling, and practically mauling each other. The opening scene is violent and the bear scene clocking at 4 minutes is intense and gruesome.

Coarse Language: For a R rated film it is not bad. Has a handful of F bombs.

Nearly as few dialogue as "Mad Max Fury Road." Tons of excellent quotes at IMDb:
