Benicio Del Toro,
Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when Grey, a self-identified technophobe, has his world turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant called Stem.
Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
A woman known as The Nurse (Jodie Foster) runs a high-security, members-only hospital for high-rolling criminals in Los Angeles. When a bank robber (Sterling K. Brown) brings his injured teammates along with $18 million in jewels there, both mob boss Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum) and the police follow. With the hospital under siege, The Nurse, her orderly (Dave Bautista) and her other criminal patients have to defend themselves.
If I were to say one thing to sum up this movie, it would be "wasted potential". This is not a bad movie, it's just not as good as it could've been. There are multiple points where they set up something that seems like it could be really cool, but never quite pay it off.
This movie has a really cool premise, it's got a nice grimy but sleek style to it, and filled with Interscope characters. Jodie Foster is incredible, and Dave Bautista steals the show when he's on screen, but again it never quite reaches the peak of what it could've done with these characters.
So while you don't need to rush out and see it, I'd still give it a chance because at the very least it is quite entertaining.
