Hotel Artemis | 2018 | R | - 2.7.10

Set in 2028, a woman known as the Nurse (Jodie Foster) operates a hotel that's actually a members-only secure medical facility for criminals in Los Angeles. When one day the streets erupt in a riot over water rights, violence escalates inside and out of the hotel. Also with Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, Dave Bautista and Kenneth Choi. Directed by Drew Pearce. A few lines of dialogue are spoken in French with English subtitles.[1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A man and a woman kiss and he pulls her close to him at the waist.
 A woman talks about her client wanting to watch her slit the throat of another man while the first man masturbates. A man makes a remark about a woman's buttocks (using crude terms) and she insults him. A man tells a woman, "We had some kind of chemistry."
 Throughout the movie a woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage, bare back and her bare legs to the upper thighs through long slits from the hem. A dead man's shirt raises up and we see a part of his bare lower back and upper buttock.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A woman straddles a wounded man on a medical table, presses a shard of ceramic to his neck and drags it across his throat (we hear the tearing and gagging and see a lot of blood pour from the wound as she cuts his throat open). Four men argue in an alley as riot police pass by and one man shoots at them; they return fire and all four men are struck (we see bloody bullet wounds). People run through an alley chased by riot police; one man is shot and a woman is threatened until another man punches the police and leaves them unconscious where they are later shot twice each by another man (we hear the shots; there's no evident blood).
 A 3D printer slams down on a man's head crushing it (we hear a loud crunch as he yells and blood pours out of the machine as the man falls limp). A man threatens a woman with a gun until the man is shot in the back by another man who then also shoots the woman in the leg (we see a bloody wound later). A woman fights and kills several men in a hallway and more keep coming; she uses knives, scalpels, punches, kicks, throws, metal bars (we see her bloody face after a couple of punches land). A man using an ax fights several men in a lobby and hallway (we see blood spray on walls, he is surrounded by many men and we hear him yelling from another room).
 A man wraps a rope around another man's neck and jumps on his back; the attacked man slams the other man into a cement pillar and the two men argue. A man yells and punches another man in the face (we see blood on his nose and lip). A man holds another man around the neck and injects him with a sedative. A woman breaks a coffee mug and throws a shard of the cup into a chair next to a man. A man touches another man's shoulders and the second man tells him not to do that. A woman kicks a man in the back of the legs and pounds his head on a railing (he falls unconscious and we see him with a bloody cut on his nose later). A large explosion on the roof of a building throws a man and knocks out the power in the building.
 A woman uses a laser scalpel to open an incision in a woman's abdomen (we see the bloody flesh open). A wounded man lies on a medical table and a robot arm injects him and cleans his wounds (the man grimaces and we see bloody clothing); we see the robot arm extract a bullet. Streaks of blood are shown on a floor leading to an elevator door where there are bloody handprints. A man is shown with bloody neck and abdominal wounds. A robot arm injects a man in the side around a bloody wound and a woman pulls open the wound to take something out (not clear what it is, but it's probably a bullet). A man with a bloody wound on his neck complains, "I have a bullet in my neck." A woman on CCTV pleads for help and we see that she is wounded with blood on her face and head. A man lies dead on a beach under a boardwalk with waves washing over him (we see this in a few scenes).
 A 3D printer prints what we are told is a liver that will be transplanted into a wounded man. A woman's arm is shown with a bullet hole in it and another woman sprays it with what looks like a liquid bandage. A man is shown with many tattoos on his arms, upper chest and throat. We see cut scars on a woman's wrist. We see blood on the waistband of a man's pants from a gunshot wound and he limps.
 A man with a knife threatens a man and a woman; he is sprayed in the eyes with a liquid bandage, then slammed in the back with a syringe with a tranquilizer used on baby elephants, and we see him foaming at the mouth and motionless. A man holds a gun to another man's head demanding access codes and many other people are shown bound and on their knees.
 A woman hyperventilates during an anxiety attack. A man goes into cardiac arrest when the power is cut in a building and a woman tries to resuscitate him but is unsuccessful.
 A woman says that a man has several entry wounds and a hole in his liver. A man yells and says, "My eyeball is falling out of my face," and we see him later as a woman uses a laser to treat a scar on his forehead and cheek where he had been cut or shot (his eye is also bloodshot). A man yells, "I'm dead out here." A man says he was stabbed in the back and his attacker nearly cut off his face. A woman talks about her dog and how much she loved it; she says that it ran into traffic all the time and she would keep patching it up until it got taken out by an 18-wheeler. A woman talks about her client wanting to watch her slit the throat of another man while the first man masturbates. A man panics and talks about another man drowning thieves in the ocean. A man says, "I gotta give you back to the ocean if you steal from me." A woman becomes teary when another woman asks her about her son (we understand that the son died). A woman says that another woman started drinking and lost her medical license after her son died. We hear police radio chatter about riots and police being overrun.
 A helicopter or a drone crashes into a building. Several scenes both live and on TV screens show many people protesting on streets with vehicles in flames and police wearing riot gear. A nearby building bursts into flames on the top floors. A large hole is blown through a brick wall.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
