Hotel Artemis (15)

Science Fiction, Drama

US sci fi drama following a doctor who runs a hospital catering to the criminal elite of a dystopian Los Angeles.

The critical consensus

Stylishly realised against a backdrop of violence and faded Hollywood glamour, Drew Pearce’s vision of the near-future is laced with intrigue and dark humour.

****(*)Jonathan Pile, Empire Online, 11/07/2018

Jodie Foster slays in a beautifully shot and designed noir that owes a lot to John Wick.

***(*)(*)Katherine McLaughlin, The List, 16/07/2018

For all its structural flaws, Hotel Artemis makes for a wildly entertaining edition to the summer blockbuster line-up.

***(*)(*)Kelli Weston, The Skinny, 17/07/2018

There’s still something charming about Hotel Artemis, despite its many, many flaws.

***(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 17/07/2018

However contrived, this is a watchable and stylish piece of work, anchored by a very strong performance from Foster.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/07/2018

Pearce keeps matters brisk. He also manages continually to undercut the most apocalyptic scenes with moments of ironic humour.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 19/07/2018

The plot is incidental; what matters here is the action.

****(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 22/07/2018

Though the finely-crafted and snappy plot lacks tension, scale and a dramatic twist, Jodie Foster illuminates the screen as the “fixer”, providing heart and (for a rare change) humour to an unlikely but likeable hero.
