The drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.
Benicio Del Toro,
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.
Despite the fact that many of the characters' real names are revealed in the film, the end credits only list their code names. The Nurse, Waikiki, Niagara and so on. See more »
Both Waikiki and Acapulco were able to create guns inside the weapons-free facility using parts made on a 3D printer. However they would not have been able to get the bullets to use the guns, though they are shown to fire them later. See more »

So we have a dystopian, coming soon future L.A. where inhabitants riot to get clean H2O. Within it is a sanctuary of sorts where w/membership & following the rules you can reside in this sort of a hospital hotel secure from all that's going on in the streets. The nurse/doctor runs the place w/the help of a big muscle guy, and robotic medical help. They face all sorts of not-so-nice characters. A bit of violence of course to add spice to the intrigue. Script: A bit scattered at times, but somewhat creative. Acting: Interesting & different.
Side note: There's a scene with a body beneath a pier that is almost identical to a similar scene in "Breath".
