Set in the future in 2028, the story of Hotel Artemis begins when two Waikiki brothers (Sterling K. Brown) and Honolulu (Brian Tyree Henry) steal a bank in Los Angeles, USA.
They were badly wounded when they clashed with the police, and were forced to return to Artemis – a secret hotel for the treatment of criminals run by Jean Thomas (Jodie Foster) and Everest (Dave Bautista).
Here, Waikiki was revealed by the assassin of Nice (Sofia Boutella) that the item they had stolen belonged to the black tycoon nicknamed Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum). In addition, the arms dealer Acapulco (Charlie Day) also appeared in Artemis with a mysterious purpose.
Things became more and more tense when Jean Thomas suddenly received the call, announcing that the Wolf King was seriously injured and was on his way to her place.
Interesting story but no flaws
It is not difficult to recognize the idea of Hotel Artemis somewhat similar to the Continental hotel in the John Wick series. Both are reserved for homestay criminals with similar laws.
For example, customers should not kill each other within the hotel or be chased if the violation. Along with the gloomy tones, the movie soon caused curiosity for the audience right from the beginning.
In fact, Drew Pearce’s work brings a fascinating future to the world of 3D printers or a range of medical and telecommunications equipment. Background film is also quite “time” when the source of clean water is dominated by giant corporations. From here, a large-scale riot occurs and directly affects the plot.
Hotel Artemis has a turn-of-the-mill feel and atmosphere that Chung Chung-hoon, a Korean-styled hand-to-hand maker of such hit films as Oldboy (2003), The Handmaiden (2016) and IT (2017). The signature music featured by Cliff Martinez is another noteworthy addition.
Song content is confused and lack of depth. The battle between the professional assassins can not create the necessary stress. Many contradictions are proposed, but not resolved to the place.
As the first film as a director, the screenwriter of Iron Man 3 (2013) is quite handsome in dealing with situations, and as a consequence the dramatic factor in the movie is decreasing over time. . Until the climax of the film, everything is resolved easily and too quickly.
Not to mention, Hotel Artemis still contains many “beads” are not worth it. It is unbelievable that during the 20 years of operation, the hotel for criminals did not occur any payment between patients when there were only two managers. And a mysterious and dangerous place like Artemis actually has very weak defense, lack of security.
Jodie Foster shines in star cast
With a series of criminal characters with a mysterious past, it is not too difficult for the British director to create a conflict between the two. Song, the character and the connection between the lines is made quite sloppy.
Their relationship only comes from superficial dialogue, no head no tail. At times, the audience easily recognizes the gong that expresses the emotion of the star cast.
Not only that, Charlie Day’s performance or Jeff Goldblum’s humorous humor, making the atmosphere of the film tensions almost disappear. The amount of time divided into a large array of characters make it difficult for individuals to express the psychological character. Even Sterling K. Brown, Zachary Quinto or Dave Bautista were faint and left no impression at all.
The highlight of the performance belonged to Sofia Boutella and Jodie Foster. After starring in action blockbusters such as Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) and Atomic Blonde (2017), the African-American actress has become the top actress in Hollywood.
The role of the killer Nice is quite similar to John Wick (Keanu Reeves). It’s a professional girl who has a mind for “career,” but weak in relationships. This is also one of the few characters dedicated to watching the beautiful and violent melee in the movie.
After 5 years of absence on the big screen, Jodie Foster has an impressive re-release. Success from such classics as Taxi Driver (1976) or The Silence of the Lambs (1991), a 1962-born actress who successfully portrays an older nurse with a lot of pain in the past.
Despite the alcohol and the old-fashioned player, Jean Thomas has always done the job of treating the hottest criminals. She has many soft minutes, but also extremely tough and brave in front of the rules set by the hotel when necessary.
Overall, Hotel Artemis may not be a great work, but it is still a “new breeze” between the blockbuster season.
