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.




  • Excellent Movie, Great Cast of Characters

    By SumYungGai
    The writer did an excellent job in creating a very emotional storyline, which takes you on a realistic journey into the soul of a man. From an unthinkable last assignment of escorting and releasing his most hated adversary (Chief Yellow Hawk) back to his native lands; saying goodbye to his closest friends and fellow soldiers along his journey; realizing just how much his life is intertwined with the life of the Chief; to a very intense and emotional release of anger as he eliminates the final obstacle in achievement of his mission. This has quickly become one of my favorite movies.
  • Absolutely beautiful and DARK!

    By Trotskii
    Superb all the way around, this is the story of one man's redemption as he faces one act of depravity after another. A word to the wise: It's extremely violent from the outset, and maintains a slow burn of intensity. Shot entirely on location, the photography is stunning. Christian Bale's performance is huge, and holds the sometimes incoherent script together. I won't spoil it for you, but there are several scenes that just make the hair on your arms stand straight up. But DEFINITELY don't come here looking for traditional western.
  • Heart thumping

    superb acting. Outstanding scenery. Incredible score. I bought the soundtrack. Perfect. A drama must!
  • Great acting and cinematography but..

    By NJ23dub
    I enjoyed the movie and thought the acting was fantastic from everyone in it. The story has a few built in mini stories that leave it to you to interpret and assume which I like, but it makes the main plot get lost in the shuffle. Overall worth the time if you like this genre.
  • Two thumbs up!

  • Good and Bad

    By North Fork Viewer
    Rosamund Pile makes this movie. So I liked most of it. I hated the final gunfight because it is the standard rotten-to-the-core rancher thing. To quote Walter Brennan in Red River: "I hate strangers 'cus the never goodnewsed me" Montana in 1892 had 1 person per 1000 sq. miles, Will penny is more accurate. People out there on their own were never going to see a random rancher on patrol, let alone four or five.
  • Truly Great Film

    By denisegraham
    I rented this movie because it was on sale but I was very impressed with the acting, storyline and all that made this a truly entertaining movie!
  • Hyper-violent & Unintelligible

    By Mission Accomplished
    Half the time I thought the soldiers were speaking Russian or Martian. The Indian chief who was dying of cancer seemed awfully healthy. The script was hyper-violent and the women were abused very badly. Not much fun to watch.
