Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Hostiles

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

"Hostiles" ultimately falls back on the same one-dimensional archetypes, depicting Native Americans either as ruthless savages or as stoic sages, with nothing in between.

"Hostiles" finds its footing as it begins to reckon with the moral underpinnings of the Western genre.

September 5, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A mournful, sorrowful, persistently powerful Western set in a world of beauty, tears and blood.

Between bouts of violence, it's a dull journey

Hostiles is as poetic as it is ferocious, and entertains while being thought-provoking.

October 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Hostiles" is a harshly eloquent piece that is well peppered into our less than enthusiastic film year. For a cinephile, there's plenty to chew on as it examines the nature of violence in all its American glory.
