avoid at all costs
- Hotel Artemis review by SG
what was Jodie Foster thinking?
this film is a lame attempt to copy Luc Besson, with dire results. Even Jeff Goldblum can't save it - it's that bad. OTT violence and turgid dialogue make this definitely a straight-to-dvd movie. it's 2028 and the world has gone mad with violence on every street (deja vu?). amongst this chaos is Hotel Artemis - a sanctuary for criminals to be treated for their gunshot wounds. yes - that. is it. the sum of the plot with some classic vinyl 60s tunes. and Dave Bautista being a hardman. again. if i was you i would watch Jaws 3 instead.. ahem

Awful, pc, #metoo #blacklivesmatter scifi mash-up that fails on every level
- Hotel Artemis review by PV
Well if this is the sort of movie Hollywood will be spewing out in the pc age of female and black actor quotas, following the #metoo and #BlackLivesMatter and #Oscarssowhite whingeing, then I shall be watching old films from now on.
This is awful. EVERY white man is portrayed as a buffoon, a clown, an utter incompetent idiot OR a thuggish nasty b-stard. Same as on TV drama then, and esp the BBC. By contrast, all women are 'strong' angels and black men too. AND btw in REAL life, 95% surgeons are men (and 97% firefighters and 99%+ pilots and 100% sniper hitmen working for the Foreign Office, no matter how hard TV and movie drama tries to claim it's 50%).
The French totty here is so cartoony wonderful she managed to be a sort of Wonderwoman. Which makes the whole thing a mockery.
Give me a break and put this tripe in the trash where it belongs.
The ONLY redeeming feature is Jeff Goldblum who steals every scene he is in - but before and after that, this is tedious trash. 1 star.

Just when I thought it was going to be great.....
- Hotel Artemis review by SL
The first 30-40 mins of this are great as the various characters arrive in place. However as they are all injured and to a degree isolated the film goes nowhere and the tension just evaporates. Pity.
Unlike one of the other reviews I just didnt see this as having a gender or colour 'problem' just a script problem.
