Review: Bale delivers in desolate Western ‘Hostiles’
Christian Bale plays a U.S. Army captain in Scott Cooper's tough 1890s period piece
"Hostiles" is bleak.
This 1890s-set Western is a deliberately slow and meditative study of vengeance, the nature of man and the journey of a soul. It stars Christian Bale as a seen-it-all U.S. Army captain tasked with transporting a Cheyenne chief from New Mexico to his homeland in Montana, a task about as welcome as ingesting several mouthfuls of dirt a day. Not fun.
