The image is an example of a ticket confirmation email that AMC sent you when you purchased your ticket. It's highly entertaining and shows great talent from all involved. 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. You're almost there! Cinemark Coming Soon. © 2020 Guardian News & Media Limited or its affiliated companies. If the John Wick movies were to get a TV series (and for one reason or another, I imagined this as an animated TV series) this would definitely be a treatment for a five or so episode-arc as Foster's Nurse and Bautista's Everest would be series regulars and Brown's Waikiki a recurring personality that would likely, eventually, befriend the titular assassin when he opted to stay at the Artemis instead of the Continental. Filmpubliek dat afgaat op de trailers vindt hier echter een warrige film, met een vreemde anticlimax, een gebrek aan actiescènes en zonder overtuigende held om voor te juichen. | Top Critics (36) Coming Soon. 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. Rest assured, to describe it merely as a knockoff of that movie is to do it a bit of a disservice because it borrows from a number of different sources, ranging from “The Purge” to large chunks of the filmographies of John Carpenter and Walter Hill to, oddly enough, “Grand Hotel.” While originality may not exactly be in great supply here, these familiar elements have been mixed with enough wit and style to make for some sleazy, insanely violent, and reasonably entertaining B-movie trash. Still...Jodie Foster invests so much in this role and triumphs. | Rotten (74). Hotel Artemis is a B-movie wrapped in an A-list cast of actors who are clearly enjoying the hell out of being a part of something that is outlandish and weirdly enjoyable. Peter Sobczynski is a contributor to and Magill's Cinema Annual and can be heard weekly on the nationally syndicated "Mancow's Morning Madhouse" radio show. | Rating: 3/5 It’s one of many black-market hospitals catering to criminals requiring medical assistance. 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. Don’t worry, it won’t take long. |, July 19, 2018 Hotel Artemis has a few flashes of wit and an intriguing cast, but mostly it's just a serviceable chunk of slightly futuristic violence -- which might be all its audience is looking for. The Nurse (Jodie Foster) is the embittered one in charge, using technologically advanced equipment to fix up those in need with the help of her orderly Everest (Dave Bautista). If I could, I'd sign the guestbook promising to make a return visit! Available for everyone, funded by readers. It's a shame that it ends up feeling like a fairly lifeless trap. The whole thing is painfully derivative (very John Wick), populated by two-dimensional ciphers...and drowned in overfamiliar "comic-book noir" style. Me fait penser à Smoking Aces. 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. Looking haggard way beyond her years and adopting a Keyser Soze gait, she springs into action. A film that feels rather brave, slightly fresh, and all-manner of fun. As rioting rocks Los Angeles in the year 2028, disgruntled thieves make their way to Hotel Artemis -- a 13-story, members-only hospital for criminals. | Rating: 3.5/5 She's quirky, odd, fierce, and totally in charge. All rights reserved. However, Pearce keeps things hopping along quickly enough that one hardly registers these stumbles until long after the movie has ended. The drama may fall flat, but fans of futuristic, noir-tinged action can do much worse than an overnight stay at the Artemis. We won’t be able to verify your ticket today, but it’s great to know for the future. The percentage of Approved Tomatometer Critics who have given this movie a positive review. At just 97 minutes, it’s often rushed, the eagerly awaited confrontations and reveals thrown at the audience and landing without the fireworks they deserve. 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. There’s Acapulco (Charlie Day), an obnoxious arms dealer, Nice (Sofia Boutella), a glamorous yet lethal assassin and brothers Waikiki (Sterling K Brown) and Honolulu (Brian Tyree Henry), on the lam after a bank heist gone wrong. All rights reserved. ... one of those films that is well-crafted on all levels, from the acting to the décors to the fight sequences to the way its shot to everything else. | Rating: 2/5 Sadly for him, he lacks the kind of weapons that would impress either crowd. Boutella's role is overfamiliar from her Atomic Blonde and Kingsman bad-assery, and Day is a bit much, but everyone else knuckles down to what they're doing with much more thought than you usually get from such gimcracky genre fare. Between the guests and the riots wreaking havoc with the power, The Nurse is barely hanging on as it is but things are complicated further by two additional arrivals. The film keeps this premise somewhat basic, taking place almost entirely in the corridors and rooms, relying on a great cast and interesting characters. Pearce is trying to appeal to Foster fanatics and hardcore action buffs. 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. I also loved seeing Jeff Goldblum and Zachary Quinto playing against type, Charlie Day shining in the Sam Rockwell role, Jenny Slate as a wounded cop with an interesting connection to the story, and Sofia Boutella (a knockout in ATOMIC BLONDE) carrying some of the best action sequences.

Now don't get me wrong, it's far from great, but at least it's strange. Best of all is Jeff Goldblum, who arrives fairly late in the proceedings but proves to be worth the wait as a crime kingpin who's dangerous and droll in equal measure—his delivery of his final line of dialogue is pretty much worth the price of admission by itself. [Jodie Foster's] crabbed, jittery performance that holds the film together. Coming Soon, Regal By creating an account, you agree to the Privacy Policy All Critics (177) Waikiki (Sterling K. 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. In “John Wick,” one of the cleverest plot devices was a hotel that catered exclusively to the discerning criminal element, all of whom agreed to follow the establishments strict policy against killing on the premises, even if your target was a fellow guest.
