      Throughout Hostiles, the veteran soldiers remind each other that they have killed not only warriors, but women and children, too.

      Hostiles.. looks like a good western. Twelve Strong, based on the book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton A true story about 12 special forces soldiers that went to Afghanistan right after "".. I read the book, liked it, because there were horses. There is still a place in modern warfare for man's best friend, the horse.

The adaptation of Doug Stanton's book Horse Soldiers stars Chris Hemsworth and tells the story of a group of soldiers sent to Afghanistan immediately after.

Hostiles is a deeply felt story, peopled by soldiers, American Indians and civilians who express their feelings with utmost caution. Despite the familiar premise and the flow of the story, the people who populate it are happily unfamiliar.
