I was excited by the cast, but not because of the time period.
But to be fair, Bale and Foster were in 3:10 to Yuma together

I thought about going to this this weekend but then decided to play video games instead. Maybe I will make more of an effort this week/this weekend to make it.

For some reason I thought this was a civil war drama, is it more of a western?

More of a western. It's set in post-Civil War western US. Christian Bale has been imprisoning/killing Native Americans on the frontier for years and now is ordered to escort a family of Native Americans back to their homes and free them so the old Chief can die in his homeland (he's sick with cancer). Hijinks ensue.

I wanted to see this but it's already pulled from the big theaters here after only a month. 12 Strong came out at the same time but still has a screen.

This movie was spectacular. Christian Bale did a great job. A very different take on a "western". Pretty emotional. Nice gunfighting.

I wish I would have tried harder to see it. Comparable at all to Bales other western, 3:10 to Yuma?

Thanks for posting in here and not the list thread!

Ughhhh.... I think I liked 3:10 to Yuma more. Hostiles is a lot more emotional though and creates more drama. 3:10 to Yuma is basically just a shoot 'em up. I also love Russell Crowe.

From a movie perspective, Hostiles might be better??? I don't know they are close.

It does have the one dude who was also in 3:10 to Yuma so I did think of that movie while watching Hostiles. But like CrckrJack said, this is a much more emotional story.

Edit: Ben Foster is the dude's name.

agreed 3:10 better just because of all the shooting.. Hostiles learn more about what it was like back then.. you had to be a man back then to survive
