Did You Know?
- This was the second time actor Christian Bale and Director Scott Cooper worked together, after Out of the Furnace (2013).
- Beginning in the 1840s, the Cheyenne and Comanche tribes were allies. The Comanche would not have tried to kill Cheyennes escorted by the Army, but perhaps tried to release them. It's a moot point, however as by 1892 both tribes had finished with warfare, both inter-tribal and against the whites.
- Rosalie Quaid: You believe in the Lord, Joseph?
- Captain Joseph J. Blocker: Yes, I do.

Truly insightful. The characters learned that we are all the same. mid way through the film, they were able to see war from both sides and learned to accept one another's differences and make peace..
a little slow , needed more dialogue and just a little more action
Most powerfully about what violence does to the soul: Joe is almost dead to the world, and to himself. Not quite, though. This harshly beautiful film is equally about his regeneration during the course of a journey that amounts to a parable of humanity trying to climb out of the pit of endless slaughter and retribution.
Contemplative and absorbing rather than rip-roaring and exciting, the film will likely play better to Western connoisseurs than to general and younger audiences, but it's an estimable piece of work grounded by a fine-grain sensibility and an expertly judged lead performance.
Hostiles demands patience and concentration but rewards that with an assured, thought-provoking window into a past whose legacy is still being felt to this day.
