AGPerson’s review published on Letterboxd:
Bad Times at the El Royale made for an extremely enjoyable screening at the theater!
As the day of reckoning comes down upon every character in the cast, it’s hard to not love every single one of them whether they are the protagonist or the antagonist
This ensemble works so damn well together, and everyone has their moment to shine which made me so much more engrained into the plot
Speaking of which, wow it took plenty of twists and turns, and each one was more flashy than the previous. Seriously, after such a great build-up, the third act is the most centralized but simultaneously the most jaw dropping in my opinion. It is just an excellent cap to the story
With some phenomenal camerawork that makes you feel like a “pervert in the hotel” too and perhaps my favorite soundtrack all year, this was a film that was both riveting and entertaining all the way through, and proves one aspect doesn’t need to be sacrificed for the other
