Movie Info & Cast
Jodie Foster plays The Nurse, the proprietor of a secret members-only emergency room in a dangerous near-future Los Angeles. Only the members are all desperate criminals in need of patching up, and the danger doesn’t always stop at the doorstep. And speaking of criminals, the cast assembled in this stylish, pulse-pumping thriller is almost too good to be legal. Foster is joined by the likes of Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista. Hotel Artemis is the first feature film directed by longtime writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3).

Great cast, but the overall pacing felt off. Would have benefitted from an extra 20 minutes overall.
The pacing of the movie was off, and could have used a lot more action. Additionally the movie could have used some mystery, everything does not need to be explicitly spelled out. The premise of the movie was very promising, it just didn’t pay off.
The flavorful cast inhabit vividly drawn characters, and, perhaps most of all, the film exudes wall-to-wall, high-grunge atmosphere. That’s a lot of checked-off boxes, and yet the effect is efficiently wild rather than wildly involving, entertaining but not indelible.
Like many movies set in colourfully bleak futures, Hotel Artemis can’t sustain the novelty of its initial world-building.
Though it boasts an agreeably preposterous scenario and a weird mixed bag of physicalities and acting styles — from Foster and Sterling K. Brown to Jenny Slate and Dave Bautista — the movie is itself an eye-rolling performance of cyber-pulp tropes and pop-movie excesses that undercuts its spotty pleasures at nearly every turn.
