- Ummmm...3 star

I’m really not sure how to rate this movie. I watched it from beginning to end. Saying that it dragged isn’t entirely accurate. The movie intrigued me and kept my interest. There were humorous moments and teeth clenching “what the hell just happened” moments. Hemsworth plays a really good creepy cult leader type character and was actually quite repulsive, even with the six-pack abs. Overall, I’m glad I watched the movie because I was entertained but it is probably just a one-time watch for me.

- Love it!5 star

This movie is everything! ♥️

- Overlooked For No Good Reason5 star

This Tarintino-esque character study is under-rated and under-appreciated. With an unusual narrative and talented cast I had to watch it again. The movie seems slow at some parts but the end makes up for it.

- The film editing was amazing5 star


- M’eh2 star

With a really good cast this movie should have been phenomenal. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Jeff Bridges was fantastic as usual but the rest were wooden and dull. I don’t think the brunt of the blame belongs to the actors but to the director. The story was all over the place and it never answered any of the lingering questions. So sad. This film had such promise.

- Amazing5 star

Loved this so much.

- Best movie I’ve seen this year5 star

Action packed. I can’t say how much we enjoyed this movie. We were shocked it was not nominated for any Oscars.

- Great, but one thing might drag people away.5 star

I personally love this film and the style they used. First they are very vague and make the watcher confused which I personally love in a film as well as many other people do. Also they jump around in this movie showing what the different characters saw at the same time, which I as well as others may like but this seemed to drag one of my friends away from the movie.

- Bad Times at the Hotel Royale5 star

A terrific noir thriller. Absolutely mesmerizing, with uniquely impressive performances by the stars.

- 👍🏻4 star

Worth renting. It’s entertaining, which makes it better than 90% of what’s out there. Plus, it’s got lots of gratuitous violence which will upset the liberals. I liked it.

- Sucked1 star

This movie was long, confusing, and under whelming. The two hour movie felt like it would never end! The whole movie just felt totallly pointless! The one good thing out the whole movie was seeing chris hemsworth shirtless. With all the celebrity names i really thought this would be better!

- Great movie!!!!4 star

So I think this movie was really great and it kept going and it kept you guessing throughout the whole movie. Chris Hemsworth really brought the whole bad guy thing to the table and he did really well. There’s a lot of famous actors and actresses and they really shine together in this film. I definitely recommend this movie.

- Great movie5 star

Shot in Great 4K

- Yeah...5 star

That's one of those movies that you see a couple times a year. 1 out of every hundred that sticks with you. Brilliant film.

- Waste of talent2 star

So many talents and such a bad movie.

- Outstanding 👍👍👍5 star

Awesome movie! Loved the whole thing. Never a dull moment. The ensemble cast is excellent. Superb storyline that twists & turns to its great ending. Yep, totally enjoyable 👍👍👍😎

- Phenomenal5 star

Masterfully acted and scripted, a true diamond in the rough. Seen a few reviews in which people complain about falling asleep due to its pacing and lack of explosions; I'd imagine those people have to watch instructional videos in order to tie their shoes every morning. Probably still end up tying them together half the time....

- Alright4 star

Lots of unexpected twists & turns! Keeps you on your toes, wondering what’s going to happen next. It is a little too long & dragged out though. Overall, a decent movie & would recommend everyone watch it at least once.

- Awesome cast and soundtrack5 star

Great performances. Reminded me of Pulp Fiction.

- Good movie5 star

Entertained and Very good movie, one of the best I’ve seen this year

- Fun movie5 star

Exciting movie. Nothing is what it seems!

- Excellent film. Not for everyone though5 star

An excellent movie, lots of unexpected turns and twists in this ride of a film. However, this movie isn’t for everyone, you have enjoy films that take you on a journey. Not a face value film. From most of the “1-star” reviews, it looks like they just watched it expecting something else. If you’re looking for something new and different, I’d say this film will satisfy your search. Looking for something quick and easy, you’ll be disappointed.

- Pointless1 star

Pointless ... and dumb :(

- Strange4 star

It was an interesting movie. Didn’t love it nor hated it. I think it is worth watching as it is one of a kind

- Poetential2 star

I saw what they were going for the execution was just no there.

- It's Good4 star

Can't give it 5 stars , But I can give it 4 . I gotta say , This was a pretty good movie. Better than I expected .

- AWESOME5 star

One of the best movies ever...Every actor and actress fit perfectly into their roles.Also, .....yea

- So much fun!4 star

I haven’t gasped during a movie, like I did during this film, in a long time. Entertaining, darkly funny, and intense.

- Amazing movie!!5 star

Watched three times. It was honestly the best movie I saw all year!

- So Boring1 star

Those giving 5 stars are wrong for that. Just because it’s a weird movie- you all call it well written. So slow, I fell asleep twice for two different days. Still don’t remember because I slept through the ending. That’s how boring this movie is

- Never a dull moment5 star

Amazing plot, cast, soundtrack

- Great movie5 star

Had a little of the same feel as a Tarantino movie only not so much over the top with the blood and bullets flying everywhere as Hateful 8, Django Unchained, or Inglorious Basterds. Jeff Bridges acting as good as ever too bad he's a Liberal nutter.

- Slow!!!1 star

Not sure how many of these 5 star ratings were paid for or family members of the cast but they can’t all be real...

- New Cult Classic5 star

Diverse mix of acting styles & unique plot lines. Loved it!!

- great movie5 star

i love it when i stumble on a movie like this. great acting. great story. great movie. highly recommend watching it.

- Phenomenal5 star

I really loved this film. Bear in mind, the trailer is misleading (so banish it from your memory before watching), and there are parts of the story left purposely vague, so if you like by-the-numbers movies that spell everything out and tie it all up in a big neon bow, give this a miss. Bad Times has a noir streak running right through the center of it, with a (late) mid-century backdrop, a Tarantino-meets-Hitchcock vibe and a stellar cast to round it out. The film's soundtrack is like a bonus character unto itself, and worth a grab as well.

- Amazing5 star

See it.

- A director that likes to play with himself1 star

This film is GAWD AWFUL. If I have to suffer through another hipster set decorator driven dribble of a film, I’m going to vomit. Bridges should get over himself and learn to really play the guitar (instead of relying on real musicians), at this point in his career it won’t hurt. His film roles are becoming so tired it is pathetic to watch. HIs brother Beau is taking more serious parts than he. Just a huge waste of my time trying to make sense of this piece of crap that iTunes labeled a movie.

- Great Fun!5 star

What a ride! Great Thriller. Fun movie to watch at home with your significant other and a bunch of dogs...and a pizza... and two beers. The stage sets and design were amazing as was the story and the cast.

- It’s was okay3 star

Not good but not horrible. I would not buy this movie. Wanted more but got less. It’s meh...

- Holy cow !!5 star

This is without doubt the best movie I’ve seen in a long time suspenseful , gritty and in places funny , with an awesome soundtrack I’ll give it two thumbs way up now I’m off to go buy it

Hateful Eight meets Pulp Fiction

- Bad Times at the El Royal5 star

I thought it was a lot of fun. A combination of Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. Characters were interesting and Jeff Bridges was wonderful. Singing was outstanding

- Pretty good.4 star

Not real original, but it's filmed well, and it's entertaining enough.

- MUST WATCH!5 star

Such a great movie and great story line! Absolute thriller

- Wants to be Pulp Fiction1 star

This movie is trying so hard to be hip like Pulp Fiction. When in fact it's pointless and makes zero sense. It's not even a "fun" bad movie. Hamm cannot act.

- It had promise3 star

The film had a long set up, lots of characters to introduce, and a certain style to establish. About haflway through the film you get a sense that it's not going anywhere special. And it doesn't. The performances hold the film together as the plot slowly becomes an excuse to look at Chris Hemsworth's torso.

- MUST WATCH!5 star

Absolutely amazing! All the acting was phenomenal and the story was absolutely amazing. Very good and interesting! Different than anything else out rn.

FluffnStuff - Bad Acting, bad casting1 star

This movie is trying too hard to be a Coen Brothers film from the early 90's (plus a miillion and one other movies I have alreayd seen, in a single film). It seems that Hemsworth has been taking "bad acting" classes from Brad Pitt! The casting for this film was wrong - but a nod to Jeff Bridges cause he's the man- but one man can not carry a movie. It seems like Drew Goddard was the Director, Writer, AND Executive producer for this flop. Next time he should get a second, and third, opinion - collaborators are always good at telling you its crap! Nice set tho!

bob0087 - A different kind of Movie4 star

Not to bad a movie a twist or two and Jeff Bridges makes the movie acceptable

Film guy 75 - A fantastic film noir5 star

Filled with mystery, tension and amazing performances.

Underthedomeangie - Not kidding.... the absolute worst movie ever1 star

I’ve never seen a worse movie. Just everything was terrible. I can’t say a single thing I liked.

JonSong - Got Sucked In...🤔5 star

With today’s ease of distractions and social media, I got caught up in this movie and tried several times, pull away but couldn’t! Couldn’t quite figure it out until the end of the movie when Father (Jeff) Bridges found his calling! What a way to captivate the viewer and answer a few questions in my own LIFE! 🤜🏽🤛🏽

ELMATADOR2870 - Finally!5 star

Finally something worth watching! Had me in suspense and wondering what’s coming next.

CashMoney83 - Expensive mistake2 star

I’m probably in this movie 60 bucks by now. The first time I tried to see it in the theater my date was drunk and fell asleep 3 times and I had to leave because she kept snoring too. So I finally bought it to watch at home because the beginning seemed promising. I was wrong. I kept getting bored and I hate when they do flash backs to confuse the time line. I only gave it 2 stars because they pronounced Nevada correctly which no one ever seems to do these days and us Nevadans hate that.

ZWHEELER93 - Pleasantly Surprised5 star

I was not expecting to love this movie so much! It was so good! We need more like this.

ryan.kissel - Highly recommend5 star

If you don’t have a pea sized brain, and actually like a movie with a great story, acting, dialogue, and cinematography, then this movie is for you. It may be a little too long, but it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

*DONBEAR* - I’ve seen worse4 star

This movie was good but it was really hurt by the runtime. It dragged on a little too long in parts. Two hours would've been sufficient compared to the almost two and half hour runtime of this. It has you wondering what's going on with all these characters and what's gonna happen at the end. It can get a little confusing with the multiple timelines but as long as you pay attention it makes sense at the end. The acting wasn't bad but it wasn't good. It's worth a rental but I wouldn't buy it. I will say if you get the message the film was trying to send or look it up online you’ll realize that this film had deeper meaning than what you saw. If you watch it again you’ll see it in a different light.

SlackJuan - Great Flick5 star

Not since the Cohen brothers "Blood Simple" have I seen as good a crime noir movie. The lighting and cinematography was good if not a bit over the top. I don't want to reveal any of the plot, the movie unwinds and mostly tells all, with twists and turns. The best thing about this movie is the cast - all actors are really at the top of their game here. Sit down, relax, and enjoy the show.

CYRUSJC - Fantastic5 star

This film had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Every character is interesting and play off of each other in fun ways. Definitely one of the top films of the year imo

Ers4532 - Great5 star

The best movie I have seen in awhile

holmcph1 - really bad1 star

I was looking forward to this movie, the trailer looked good, and the plot was promising, however its a total waist of 2 1/2 hour, it drags on forever jumping back and forth in time, i gave up after 40 min.

IceSoldier16 - Pretty good5 star

I loved this film and it has a really interesting story to it

sunnytammy2 - Dynamite5 star

Top knotch cast, music, set and story. I haven't said Wow after a movie in a long time. This is a keeper.

Awful. Horrible. - X5 star


SugarSkrull256 - Hey5 star

This was really good, heres a cookie 🍪

ReadySetGo07 - NUTS5 star

From the beginning of the movie, you can already feel that something is wrong. This is the type of movie where you don’t know what could possibly happen next and you just sit there with your mouth open trying to process the information coming through your eyes. The best part of the movie is the fact that it all fits like a puzzle and as each piece gets added it only gets better and better. Things make sense, so you won’t have moments where you question the reality of a situation. The worst part is that some mysteries aren’t solved or some things about the lives of the characters or about the hotel aren’t cleared up by the end of the movie. Definitely worth the watch and rewatch. Not a typical movie that becomes forgotten in the brain.

aramisenrique - simply amazing5 star

i love the soundtrack, the colors in the film, the suspense and the cast. everything was perfect. buildup was amazing.

gatekor316 - Bad Times yes!5 star

This movie , never a dull moment. Twisted and Intense. Just when you think you have it figured out. You don’t. I have to see it again so I can see all that I missed. Defiantly a must see .
