THE REVENANT is a US drama about a frontiersman who is abandoned by his fellow fur-trappers and left for dead, but survives and sets out to seek revenge.

Violence

Scenes of violence include people being hit by arrows and bullets, and exchanging blows including with bladed weapons.

A man is attacked and tossed about by a bear.

There is also a scene of sexual violence in which a man rapes a woman. The sequence is brief and lacking in nudity.

Injury detail

The bear attack results in some focus on deep bloody wounds to the victim. There is also brief focus on bloody injuries resulting from various acts of violence, including implied scalping.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'). Other bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'son of a bitch' and 'bitch'.

There is some use of discriminatory terms in relation to Native Americans, including 'feather niggers'. Such language is not endorsed.

Other issues include some sex references as a man talks about wanting a woman with 'big tits'.

The film also contains sequences showing animals fighting and being killed, including a lengthy fight between a bear and a man, although these scenes were achieved using special effects and no animals were harmed. There is also sight of dead animals being butchered, to provide both food and shelter.
