As Kara is walking away after helping Justine chain herself to a tree her face mask is on her arm, seconds later it's hanging on her neck and she is proceeding to put it on, all the while Justine is calling her name because her lock isn't working, then it shows Justine struggling, then back to Kara getting her cell phone out her pocket, but the mask seems to have disappeared, then it goes back to Justine, again still struggling with her lock, then back to Kara holding her cell phone up and magically her mask is back on her face. All this in a matter of seconds. See more »
Sitting through this painful movie. I'm surprised people are even discussing its merits - it doesn't have any!!! Except for the cool look of the natives. Speaking of natives, all they do is jump around with spears. It looks like a racist bugs bunny cartoon from the 40's. Also the Director keeps showing basically the same shot over and over of the natives, that being a wide shot of the village. The shooting is cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap. It looks like an iphone. Seriously. I was Wondering early on what kind of camera they used because it was hideous to look at. This guy's friends with Tarantino? The setup is super weak and goes on forever. I fidgeted the whole time, nodding off at one point. There is 1 scene of cannibalism, it's half decent but brief. Most of the scenes in the movie are trite and simple minded. I read an interview with Roth recently and he said he would never do another Hostile because it would be like going back to High School, he's grown that much as a director. I'm sorry Eli but you've done exactly the opposite - you've regressed: This is as bad as many a 1st- timer's efforts.
