My Review:
Having seen the cast of this movie and realising I like almost the whole cast I couldn't resist but to give this a watch and I was very happily surprised by this film!

I thought that this film was really good in that it showed how the hotel is very private and only people with the correct chip in them were going to be able to get in and cured by the nurse who runs the Hotel Artemis and only those who are criminals. By showing how some of the main characters of this movie ended up at the hotel was also something that brought the characters all together right away and make the watcher feel more for the characters involved within this movie. As the story carries on and fights and deaths start to happen within the movie this is something I am glad happened as it let me feel for the deaths and let me understand more of the characters. Also by having the nurse having extreme anxiety I thought was a good touch as it showed how experiences change people and how difficult it is for those who have anxiety and other mental health issues and they are not able to be fixed the same way as just healing the human body. By also showing that part of the reason for this is the death of her son and then later in the movie finding out why he ended up dying was something that ended up shocking me within the movie and feel sorry for the nurse, especially when the watcher discovers it is by the same person who actually helped her to make Hotel Artemis. As the movie comes to near the ending and the crime lords son breaks into the hotel I felt worried for the security guy who was working there who ended up getting mobbed by his thugs who with at the ending of the movie turned the lights back on and the person seeing the movie discovers is still alive I felt so happy as I found him to be a character in which I really felt for. I also thought it was sweet for the female assassin to have stayed and fight the mob thugs as well to help the person who she loved escape with his life as her way for saying sorry for killing his brother by mistake. The acting within this movie from all of those involved was really well done and made this film a huge success in my opinion and really helped to bring this movie to life.

I did wish however that there was more understanding about why there was the riots all over the city and what made the city like a war zone as a result of this as this was not touched upon and I feel could have made light of some of the questions I had about the movie as a whole. The only other thing I wish this movie showed was the other crime bosses in which were around and that was paying the assassin in order to kill the head of Los Angeles as we don't know anything about them except that they hired the female assassin.

Overall, Hotel Artemis was a great action movie and one with an amazing cast within it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are looking for an action movie and those who like crime. I am definitely going to be watching this movie again and look forward to spotting things I didn't my first time seeing it.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b
