Storyline Heading
With the most violent riot in L.A. history in its third night, the city's privatized police force is pummeling blue war-painted protestors whose only demand is clean water. Amidst this chaos, four men clad in skull masks find themselves in the middle of a failed bank heist.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime Thriller - This is an all-star ensemble action/science fiction thriller largely set in a single location. As with many ensemble films, some stars such as Jodie Foster and Sterling K. Brown have more substantial roles while others like Jeff Goldblum only turn up briefly. Constant language, some drug use, and plenty of intense violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ... it's frustratingly sparse in both background details and character development. The fights are effectively filmed and there are a few viscerally satisfying scenes but the production as a whole feels inconsequential. Beyond the impressive set design and evocative cinematography, there's something missing.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Hotel Artemis, in spite of its lack of such niceties as character development, could have been dizzying, but the narrative dominos fall too lethargically, and in such a familiar pattern, for the film to really soar. That lack of surprise is ruinous...

Newsday Full Review
Good "Hotel Artemis” certainly has its flaws, but on the whole it's a thoroughly entertaining and very well-crafted movie. "Hotel Artemis,” the movie, also has an important rule: No thinking. Break that rule and you'll start asking questions.

The Guardian Full Review
Above Average ...a mostly fun, often craftily constructed dystopian thriller. For all of its faults, there's still plenty here to praise, the result of so much being thrown at the wall is that some of it will stick. ...Hotel Artemis will stick out as one of the summer's most alluring curios.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 14 moviegoers:
TEENS: One male enjoyed it very much and one rated it just "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: None
ADULTS: These are decent reviews, but no where near great reviews. The male and female reviews are nearly identical. Only one loved it with another two females and three males, indicating that they enjoyed it very much. The remaining reviews are "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The Hotel Artemis, the 13-story art deco structure lost its cachet with the traveling public long ago, but thanks to funding from Malibu mobster The Wolfking (JEFF GOLDBLUM, Thor: Ragnarok), the hotel's worn exterior cloaks a state-of-the-art hospital on the penthouse level. This is a members-only E.R. exclusive to one group - criminals. Dues are paid in advance and all house rules must be followed.

A no-nonsense woman everyone calls The Nurse (Academy Award winner JODIE FOSTER) has run the place for 22 years. Assisted by her loyal orderly Everest (DAVE BAUTISTA, Guardians of the Galaxy), The Nurse is a high-tech healer who can handle almost anything - except the outside world.

But she has an ever-present distraction... the Artemis. And tonight's especially busy. By the time Sherman and Lev arrive, The Nurse has already checked in a sultry French assassin (SOFIA BOUTELLA, The Mummy) and a narcissistic arms dealer (CHARLIE DAY, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia). She hears that the owner, The Wolfking himself (GOLDBLUM), and his volatile son Crosby (ZACHARY QUINTO, Star Trek) are on their way to the hospital. Plus, there's an injured cop, Morgan Daniels (JENNY SLATE, Obvious Child), out back begging for the Nurse to take her in. But Morgan's arrival not only forces The Nurse to break her own rules... she must confront everything she's worked so hard to avoid for 22 years. All while, in her words, "the night goes to hell in a handcart full of blood and sh*t".
