Storyline

In 1892, after nearly two decades of fighting the Cheyenne, the Apache, and the Comanche natives, the United States Cavalry Captain and war hero, Joseph Blocker, is ordered to escort the ailing Cheyenne chief, Yellow Hawk--his most despised enemy--to his ancestral home in Montana's Valley of the Bears. Nauseated with a baleful anger, Joseph's unwelcome final assignment in the feral American landscape is further complicated, when the widowed settler, Rosalie Quaid, is taken in by the band of soldiers, as aggressive packs of marauding Comanches who are still on the warpath, are thirsty for blood. In a territory crawling with hostiles, can the seasoned Captain do his duty one last time? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Rosamund Pike revealed in an interview that she and Christian Bale barely spoke during filming outside of shooting their scenes, saying that Bale "would keep a distance. Our characters in 'Hostiles' are quite dysfunctional, but have this profound connection that we let happen without ever really talking about it." See more »

Goofs

When Mrs. Quaid is shooting the dead Comanche she continues pulling the trigger after she runs out of bullets. On the first empty chamber the gun still recoils as if a shot had been fired.

In her somewhat trance-like state, she becomes accustomed to the recoil and subconsciously expects it to continue until the sudden "click" of the 6th shot pulls her slowly out of her reverie. At this point, her temporary muscle memory (begun and lasting through the first five shots) dissipates and she no longer pulls the barrel back. The film makers should be lauded for the accuracy in which they portray this minor detail of how someone in her state of mind would react. See more »

An all-around outstanding film with heart and substance
5 December 2018 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

I'm disappointed at the low score and wannabe critics tearing this film apart politically, morally and historically.

This is not your typical Hollywood production, but instead, a very touching and beautiful film.

This is Scott Cooper's 4th film he both directed and wrote, and he nailed it. I hope to see much more from him in this caliber, and he is the one to watch as his resume grows.

This film was near perfect in every category. If the pace was a little faster and/or perhaps the 134 min length a little shorter, it would have been a perfect 10/10 from me.

It's been a while since I've seen a film so perfectly cast - all cast, ever single one of them, and they all performed just as great, especially Christian Bale and Rosamund Pike, who both were exceptional in their roles.

If you're expecting a wild west action Western, this isn't it. But if you want to see a near perfect film the way they used to be made, this is a gem. Ignore the negative reviews and just watch it. Would I see it again? Yes. Would I recommend it? Absolutely.

A well deserved 9/10 from me and mad props to Scott Cooper for this beautiful gem of a film.
