While Hotel Artemis is a film that lacks in plot and action, it  definitely makes up for it in its style, atmosphere, and characters. The  ensemble cast give out great performances, and the different  interactions between the colorful characters is a treat to watch.  However, what brings it down is that it doesn’t take advantage of its  future setting, as well as the pacing issues when it comes to the second  act. All in all, it’s still definitely a treat for those looking for  something different than the usual blockbuster fare.

It is a revitalization of a stagnant franchise and will hopefully take future Assassin's Creed games in a new direction.
