I’ve just seen “bad times at the royale” it’s a movie about seven strangers getting into a motel The El Royale which sits on the border between California and Nevada. Soon it becomes battleground when these seven strangers converge on a night where nothing was to go wrong.
It is categorised as: crime, drama and mystery
In my opinion it is the best movie I’ve seen recently due to the actor’s performance. They are absolutely brilliant! Their fear, their sadness, their lack of trust… They played their roles as if they were really living the story!
The movie is made by 7 actors in the same motel, it is rather difficult to have a whole story made in one place, yet it is done in an awesome way. As the movie goes, you start having a favourite character, one that you pity and one that you hate.
My favourite is the Afro-American character which plays the role of a soul singer (which she is in fact in the real life). The character has problems in her life, she always look so sad. But her voice is….. a marvel! God! She gave me goosebumps when she sang.
I pity the receptionist, (he’s a damn good actor!) even though we’ll get to know who he really is at the end of the movie, not spoiling the end! You must see it by yourself.
And finally I hated the unexpected guest arriving at the end too. He played soooo well his role to the point that I really hated him. He’s a brute!
The others are: an FBI agent which won’t be in the movie for long (poor guy)
A young woman who kidnapped her sister, for some reasons.
A fake priest, who is losing his memory little by little.
And finally the kidnapped sister which isn’t innocent as she looks like.
If you don’t mind seeing some blood, this movie is a must see! And it makes you ponder on how evil and pervert the human being can be.
I rate it 5 stars.
