Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

Rated: R - Runtime: 141 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

The opening scene is the best scene in the movie.  It's a great visual and it builds intrigue.  The end of said scene doesn't really make a lot of sense by the end of the movie, at least to me, but whatever.  The plot twists are so abundant it's like being a dog in a room full of squirrels.

Jeff Bridges delivers a standout performance, but it's not enough to make the movie as a whole stand out.
