Critic Reviews of "Bad Times at the El Royale"NPROctober 15, 2018
This Irwin-Allen-sized B-movie mostly works thanks to Goddard's knack for nesting-doll-style narrative compartmentalization and his talent for bringing out the best in his uniformly strong ensemble cast...ReelViewsOctober 12, 2018
Bad Times at the El Royale starts with a lot of promise and a full head of steam; even half-way through I was engaged. But the movie eventually careens off the track.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 12, 2018
Taking turns in the spotlight, everyone in the cast is outstanding.San Diego ReaderOctober 12, 2018
Careful framing, mysterious characters, slow builds, violent surprises, and a dynamite parade of very nearly on-the-nose songs from the mid- to late-1960sNew York Magazine/VultureOctober 12, 2018
Bad Times at the El Royale isn't an event. But I was never too bored.RogerEbert.comOctober 12, 2018
An unfortunately apt demonstration of what can befall a clever filmmaker who gets too clever.The Young FolksOctober 15, 2018
Though imperfect, is saved by its magnificent first two-thirds, its A-list cast that stuns and shares the spotlight in rounds, its infectious selection of songs sung to divine perfection.TrespassOctober 15, 2018
An imperfect movie, and one impossible to pigeonhole, but it offers more delights than many bigger films.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsOctober 15, 2018
Overlong and disappointing depraved retro.Killer Movie ReviewsOctober 14, 2018
an engrossing thriller punctuated with gunshot blasts and tidy conundrums about both right and wrong and about innocence and guilt.London Evening StandardOctober 14, 2018
Somewhere along the line... Goddard loses his own plot and succumbs to sentiment.Observer (UK)October 14, 2018
In its better moments, this studio oddity is a tense thriller, at its worst, draggy and self-indulgent.
