critics consensus

Hostiles benefits from stunning visuals and a solid central performance from Christian Bale, both of which help elevate its uneven story. Read critic reviews

In 1892, legendary Army Capt. Joseph Blocker reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their tribal land. Embarking on a harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, N.M., to the grasslands of Montana, they soon encounter a young widow whose family was killed on the plains.

    Four Weddings and a Funeral Except the Weddings Were Actually Just Extra Funerals.

    Christian Bale is absolutely tremendous, delivering a quietly intense performance in this brutal revisionist Western that carefully (yet incisively) examines the consequences of a merciless cycle of hatred that only dehumanizes people and turns them into beasts and monsters.

    a beautifully shot but thematically pretty damn gloomy Western. The story is Slow paced but the outstanding acting and interesting premise makes it fascinating and enthralling in every moment. Some character development seems to come a little sudden and the ending is both disturbingly bleak and hopeful at the same time. All that certainly makes you think about the film for a little longer, considering some of its themes resonate in today's political climate. The beautiful images stay with you anyway.

    I really, really wish the movie had the guts to seriously reckon with that great D.H. Lawrence quote that opens the movie. Unfortunately the movie is just bleak and nihilistic until it's sudden and out of place happy ending.
