Review: ‘Hostiles’

Writer and director Scott Cooper’s Hostiles isn’t one of the worst films ever made, but it’s one of the worst kinds of films: a self-important, plodding, and basic diatribe about the negative impact of Colonialism that’s too wrapped up in its own sense of personal accomplishment and air of ennui that it doesn’t realize how it’s conforming to negative stereotypes instead of subverting them.
