A truly great western, which we do not get enough of these days. Great performances across the board and once again Scott Cooper shows he is one of the best directors working in Hollywood today. Is the ending cliché? Yes, but its still a satisfying ending to a great movie that was really overlooked in 2017.
"half the people walking out were questioning the dialogue"
I'm questioning your testimony. I'm not a native speaker and I highly doubt my PC's setup is better than IMAX's 6 or 7 channel setup, yet I understood all of the dialogue. And even if I didn't, I wouldn't let it detract from the overall experience. A prime sunday flick.
A small part of me is always disappointed when another average western movie comes out because it is a genre that is getting too expensive and what it really needs is a blockbuster to send it back into the limelight. Hostiles isn't really it. I think on paper it was probably an amazing movie but the transfer to screen loses something in the translation. The character development is certainly there but it just isn't that interesting and doesn't fully resonate. The soundtrack was awful during many scenes and I couldn't make out half of what was being said. Throw in Christian Bale's low voice with an accent and forget it.
@ayyy420lmao, no, I'm talking about the audio recording, and I wasn't the only one in the theatre who thought so, half the people walking out were questioning the dialogue.
@252 I'm glad somebody did, but my point stands. In many scenes it seemed like the actors had marbles stuffed in their mouths.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
