Critics Consensus: -Metacritic: 53/100 (6 critics)
Despite an awkward first act, the film harkens back to the family-adventure genre that today's parents can recall from their own childhoods.-Yolanda Machado, The Wrap 70/100
The most endearing quality of Nicholas Stoller and Matthew Robinson's script - not counting the fact they didn't try to whitewash their Latina heroine - is the way it permits Dora to remain indefatigably upbeat no matter what the situation.-Peter Debruge, Variety 70/100
Imparting the air of having been highly sanitized and thoroughly rinsed, this late summer Paramount release is squeaky clean and unhip to an unusual degree, its commercial success resting all but exclusively on a built-in fan base.-Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter 50/100
A comic adventure that plays down to its young audience, resulting in a drab family entertainment which lacks the spirit or intelligence of its precocious protagonist (...) If Dora stumbles as a tool to encourage young people to accept others’ differences and embrace their own uniqueness, it’s equally deficient as a good old-fashioned adventure yarn.-Tim Grierson, Screen Daily
2017.08.22 18:13 autotldr Christian Bale In ‘Hostiles’, the new film from writer/director Scott Cooper ("Crazy Heart," "Out Of The Furnance")
You won't be able to turn around at the Toronto International Film Festival this year without bumping into a high profile movie, but certainly one of the biggest is "Hostiles." The new film from writedirector Scott Cooper will be making its International Premiere, and its brimming with potential and talent, starting with the cast.
Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, Adam Beach, Ben Foster, Jesse Plemons, Rory Cochrane, and Q'orianka Kilcher, the story is set in 1892 and follows an Army captain who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief through dangerous territory.
Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain who, after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back home to tribal lands.
Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche, and vicious outliers they encounter along the way.
Pretty nifty premise, and the film will look and sound great too with cinematography by Masanobu Takayanagi and a score by Max Richter.
No release date has been set for the film which will be seeking distribution.
