HOSTILES (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

a Christian Bale/Rosamund Pike film—works. The cinematography shows terrific scope. The storyline doesn’t miss a beat in authentically realizing the genre of the western movie theme. Rosamund Pike plays a wide range of emotion well. A best work for Director Scott Cooper who successfully orchestrates a western film worth watching.
