About the Movie
Set in 1892, HOSTILES tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who, after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche, and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Bursts of intense violence are punctuated with sometimes tedious blocks of speeches and silence, but "Hostiles," despite its posture of brutal amorality, has a goodness at its core, of understanding and empathy.
Rotten: For "Hostiles" to fully make sense of its introductory on-screen D.H. Lawrence quotation ... we'd need a tougher, less comforting ending than the one Cooper provides.
Fresh: This harshly beautiful film is equally about his regeneration during the course of a journey that amounts to a parable of humanity trying to climb out of the pit of endless slaughter and retribution.
Fresh: It ... engages the conventions of the genre - including ideas about male honor and egotistical frailty - in ways that feel alert and timely.
Epic Western Masterpiece!

WORST MOVIE IVE EVER SEEN
Is 0 stars a possible rating Of all the movies I’ve seen in my life this was absolutely horrible. The 1st scene some Indians kill a dad, two little girls and a baby and the mom doesn’t even get to kill any of them. 1-2 actions scene the entire 2.5 hours the rest is riding horses, setting up camp and sleeping. If you want to see a good Christian bale western movie watch 3:10 to Yuma
