Brown) is a bank robber who turns up with his gravely wounded brother Honolulu (Brian Tyree Henry) following a job that has gone sideways following the latter’s latest screw-up. and the Terms and Policies, The film is also helped in no small measure by the absurdly high level of casting on display. There are a long list of rules for members—no guns, no killing the other patients and such—that are all strictly enforced by the person in charge, a 70-something hard-drinking agoraphobe known only as The Nurse (Jodie Foster). Look, there happen to be a number of very good movies in release right now, ranging from Paul Schrader’s intense drama “First Reformed” to the knockout scare show “Hereditary” to the delightfully slick goofiness that is “Ocean’s 8.” By comparison, “Hotel Artemis” is sillier and sicker than any of those films and I cannot say that I would recommend it over any of those aforementioned titles. The latter could have had a few more layers here or there but the way to the really good showdown is interesting enough and the payoff ultimately worth it. Regal
The privatization of water companies has led to a violent revolt and as crime is on the up, so is the need for Hotel Artemis. Foster gets an incredible introduction as she rises from sleep to help these men. She also has great rapport with Dave Bautista (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) as her Muscle. FOSTER CARE - My Review of HOTEL ARTEMIS (2 1/2 Stars) It's highly entertaining and shows great talent from all involved. Tonally, the film lurches from techno-soundtracked fight scenes to teary monologues to knockabout humor within minutes, the pace rarely letting up long enough for one to notice the unevenness. Get the freshest reviews, news, and more delivered right to your inbox! One recent development, which I support wholeheartedly, is the counter programming attempt made with exploitation films such as REVENGE, UPGRADE, and now HOTEL ARTEMIS, a somewhat impressive first feature by IRON MAN 3 scribe, Drew Pearce, and Jodie Foster's first starring role in 5 years. Unfortunately, we settle into the hotel and its many occupants for the long run, creating a claustrophobic experience which, while never slack, just ends up feeling like a play with a lot of gory fight scenes. The terrible FREE FIRE from 2016 springs to mind, and that's not good.
It’s one of many black-market hospitals catering to criminals requiring medical assistance.

Coming Soon, Regal Inside Hotel Artemis, The Nurse and Everest are catering to a nearly full roster of guests, all of whom are known only by the names the “suites” where they recuperating. If anyone even thinks of violating any of them, they have to deal with The Nurse’s sole assistant, Everest (Dave Bautista), whose nickname is perhaps the only example of understatement on display in this film. She's quirky, odd, fierce, and totally in charge. There’s care in his construction, the central premise benefiting from an ambitiously wrought world and some atmospheric set design. It’s a film arriving in a season mostly lacking in creativity that’s filled with ideas, a misshapen B-movie that tries to bring a jagged grindhouse sensibility back into the multiplex. | Rotten (74). De l'action à l'état pur! As the violence of the night continues, the Nurse must decide whether to break her own rules and confront what she's worked so hard to avoid.

A jam-packed cast, also including Jeff Goldblum, Sterling K Brown, Dave Bautista and Jenny Slate, populate a mostly fun, often craftily constructed dystopian thriller, Wed 6 Jun 2018 08.01 BST
Pearce, whose previous screenwriting credits include far broader blockbusters like Iron Man 3 and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, has had Hotel Artemis in his back pocket for a number of years, and that’s clear from the outset, for better and for worse. The actors playing the guests are entertaining to watch as well—it could be argued that Boutella playing a sexy and exotic killer is not exactly a stretch for her but she is so much fun here. Nice (Sofia Boutella) is a French assassin whose injury turns out to be self-inflicted—she claims she just needs a rest but there is reason to suspect that she has other business in mind. All Critics (177) All rights reserved. The other is The Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum), the city’s top crime boss who is the financial backer of Hotel Artemis who also has a past connection with The Nurse and who now shows up with a bad wound and an entourage led by his hot-headed youngest son (Zachary Quinto), whose desire to prove himself to the old man could prove to be the final straw. Cinemark Sterling K. Brown and Brian Tyree Henry serve as our entree to the place after taking multiple gunshots after a robbery attempt.

Set in 2028 Los Angeles, a city besieged by riots when water becomes privatized, criminals seek refuge at the titular, members-only hotel, which acts as a combination hiding place and hospital. Run by Foster's "Nurse", the hotel has a dingy, noir-ish quality yet features high tech medical equipment. The motley crew around her aren’t always given adequate space to shine, with Brown emerging as the strongest and with Goldblum appearing in the sort of cameo that feels like a quick favor. It's late 70s/early 80s sensibility set against its 1930s decor yet mixing in futuristic technology makes for a vibrant sensory experience. It’s her first film since 2013’s Elysium and it feels like an odd choice, the character’s journey never quite selling us on why it would lure such a big star back to the big screen. It's a shame that it ends up feeling like a fairly lifeless trap. It’s a busy night and she finds herself and her “hotel” at full capacity, dealing with a variety of idiosyncratic guests, known only by the room within which they are staying. | Rating: 8.9/10 Sign up here.
