Movies Similar to ‘The Revenant’

This article recommends an underrated title, a must-see title, an unknown title, an ‘if you like, you will like’ title and an unexpected title so you have different options when it comes to choosing your next movie to watch.



‘Unforgiven’ (Clint Eastwood, 1992)

Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this Oscar-winning thriller as a bounty hunter who is tempted out retirement when he receives word of a terrible atrocity.

However, when he arrives in the town where it took place, he finds himself coming up against a corrupt sheriff with a real mean streak.

Directed in his twilight years, ‘Unforgiven’ is Eastwood’s final ode to a genre he has made a substantial mark in.


Similarity Match

40 years of Westerns, and Eastwood still manages to pull out this masterclass. 



‘Braveheart’ (Mel Gibson, 1995)

‘Braveheart’ is the incredible story of William Wallace, a Scot whose wife is raped and murdered by English soldiers. In his anger, he ends up leading a rebellion against his country’s Southern oppressors, becoming the voice of an army and the face of freedom to his people.

Mel Gibson pulls double-duty by acting and directing this masterpiece, a movie that still stands as one of the most important and entertaining war films to date.


Similarity Match

An inspirational war film guided by vengeance and justice. 



‘Blue Ruin’ (Jeremy Saulnier, 2013)

A much smaller film than the others on this list, ‘Blue Ruin’ is a tense and often humurous affair that sees a drifter roll back into his hometown in search of the people responsible for the deaths of his family.

His vengeance may not exactly be swift and sure, but it’s vengeance nonetheless.

If you’re looking for a more intimate movie like ‘The Revenant’, this is one for you.


Similarity Match

A dark comedy that stands out from the rest of the genre. 



‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ (Sergio Leone, 1968)

Regarded as one of the most groundbreaking Westerns, ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ still stands as a hugely entertaining action thriller that rivals anything else Sergio Leone has ever done.

Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson star in this movie about a man with a harmonica and a notorious vigilante who become allies in their quest to protect a widow from an evil assassin.

With one of the best showdowns in Western history, this movie has all the makings of a bonafide classic.


Similarity Match

A formidable piece of classic cinema. 


If You Like ‘The Revenant’, You Will Like

‘Django Unchained’ (Quentin Tarantino, 2012)

Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz sizzle with charisma as they bring Quentin Tarantino’s vision to life in this stunning Western.

Foxx stars as Django, a slave who is freed to hunt down his old slave owners, and then embarks on a country-wide quest to find his lost wife. Along the way, he is mentored by an enigmatic dentist/bounty hunter, who teaches him to shoot and kill.

With as much bloodshed as you’d expect, not to mention the breathtaking cinematography, this may be the best thing Tarantino has ever done – and I include ‘Pulp Fiction’ in that list as well!


Similarity Match

A violent trek across the American South for the woman he loves.

Hi, I’m Dale and I’m a Blu-Ray addict. When I’m not obsessively fixating over the ever-growing mountain of movies taking up most of the front room, I’m usually writing about all things Hollywood. Go figure, huh? If I’m not glued to the television watching ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ for the billionth time, you can probably find me crooning in my hard-rocking blues band or having inane conversations with the resident cats.
