Hostiles takes place in 1892 and tells the story of an Army Captain who reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne chief and his family back to tribal lands.

Verdict: Rosamund Pike and Christian Bale's performances hit the right spot. History has a way of repeating itself. That is one of the things that makes all works of arts relevant through time. Western is one of the few genres that has evolved over time and we can now see glimpses of them in sci-fi (Dark []... ...Read full review

There is a deep melancholy that runs through Hostiles, and essentially every film by Scott Cooper, that defies explanation.

His latest is not only uncommonly grim for a mainstream picture starring a mainstream movie star, but it is also a Western, a genre that has famously fallen from the audiences good graces, unless, of course, Quentin Tarantino or the Coen Brothers are somehow involved. ...Read full review
Theres a gritty integrity and plaintive poetry to this end-of-an-era western from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper. Wrestling with the oddly contemporary contradictions of frontier mythology, its a tough but tender tale of blood and dust, populated by characters who express themselves most eloquently through gestures rather than words, accompanied by a superb Max Richter score that wrings mournful song from troubled landscapes. ...Read full review
Scott Cooper is a strange filmmaker in that all his movies have interesting premises but they never really live up to their promises. Hostiles, his new project with Christian Bale in the lead is his best film, which essentially means it works at most places even though its a dreary and grim slog through some pretty visuals and wild west aesthetics. ...Read full review
