Iñárritu turns a creaky bit of frontier mythology into a gruelling, exquisite, mystical odyssey of survival that will make you cancel that camping trip.Full review
Nick de Semlyen·Empire
Punishing, visceral, masculine, grisly and utterly captivating for its run time. Not for everyone, but it's a powerful trip, if your mind and spirit can endure it. Full review
Sean O'Connell·Cinemablend
Its an imposing vision, to be sure, but also an inflated and emotionally stunted one, despite an anchoring performance of ferocious 200% commitment from Leonardo DiCaprio. Full review
