Zhao has created The Pearl.  The largest, self-sustaining structure in the world.  It is 3200 feet tall, with 2 helix turbines for power, and an observation deck that will become the 8th wonder of the world.  The lower levels are open but soon he hopes to open the residential section.  In order to do that, he wants a third party opinion of the building’s security.  Zhao’s security member Ben recommends Will Sawyer.  Ben and Will were on the same hostage negotiation team when both men were injured 10 years ago.  Now, Will has a wife Sarah and twins, Georgia and Henry, and a small business.  While he is nervous about his presentation, Sarah reassures him that he is prepared.   Will informs Zhao that the building is sound but he can not give a full review until he inspects the offsite facility.  Zhao gives him a tablet with facial recognition. With the tablet, he will be the only person who can access the facility.  Zhao instructs Ben and Will to visit the facility immediately for the final assessment.  On the way, someone tries to steal Will’s tablet but fail.  Will calls to check on his family and finds out that Henry got sick so they came home early.  Then Will looks at the TV and sees The Pearl on fire below his family’s floor.  He has to get to them but the terrorists need his tablet to get what they truly want.  When the terrorists stop the fire suppression system, Will must do anything and everything to save his family.

This high action drama gives a 3-minute overview of Sara and Will love story and then jumps to the present day.  Then the specs for The Pearl are given in a flash.  These details are 100% important for the rest of the movie, so don’t be late.  Once the movie is set up, every moment has action and cliffhangers.  You will be shocked with every obstacle that stands in Will’s way.  In one scene, each member of his family is stuck in a state of peril while be surrounded by fire.  And Will has to get to each of them.  But Sarah sets this movie apart.  As a military sergeant with 3 tours of duty, she doesn’t hide in a corner with her kids and waits to be saved.  She fights, shots, and thinks her way out of every situation.  And when she sees Will is being fingered as a possible terrorist, she is there to set the record straight.  See this movie in Dolby or IMAX to get the full effect of the height and visual effects.  Unless you are scared of heights or get motion sick.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

In 2028, Nurse has run Los Angelos’s Hotel Artemis for 22 years but it’s not a hotel.  The only open floor is the penthouse and its a hospital for criminals.  They must pay monthly dues, bring no guns, have no visitors, do no business, and never bring the police to the hotel.  And Nurse keeps everyone in line with an orderly properly named Everest.  Each room in the penthouse has a name and the patient is only referred to by this name.  The current patients are:

  • Nice: A hitwoman who only goes after important people and has an interesting implant
  • Honolulu: A bank robber with multiple guns shot wounds and a stolen pen
  • Waikiki: A bank robber who tried to get out of life but kept paying his dues
  • Acapulco: An arms dealer with a big mouth and something to prove

But two patients will cause every rule in Hotel Artemis to be broken, leaving a bloodbath.

If you are a fan of John Wick, this is right up your alley.  This movie gives you enough back story on each character to see how they are all interconnected as friends, lovers, and enemies.  It’s hard to understand how this Hotel has stood the test of time.  However, with the rules and security, everything stays in place.  Also, you will get the added bonus of learning the truth about Hotel Artemis’s start with Nurse making a deal with the devil.  Be warned there are some violent moments, so younger children should not attend.  This is going to be a cult classic and it is possible for a part 2.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

I may be a professional but she is the business – Waikiki

Don’t cross my line – Nice

I am not fat – Everest

Get your hands off the Guc – Acapulco

Those things will kill you – Nurse
