|Sound formats||Dolby Atmos|
|SA distributor||Empire Entertainment|
|Produced by||Twentieth Century Fox|
|Language||Strong impact, fairly frequent use of strong language by the characters. It is used to demean and to express frustration and surprise. Variations of the F-word are used frequently.|
|Violence||Strong impact, frequent realistic violence is present with lots of blood-letting, justified by context of murder and crime. People are shot at close range in the head with pistols and shotguns, with blood spatter and close-up scenes of dying victims. The violence is intensified by the loud sound in theatre.|
|Prejudice||Low impact, infrequent prejudice is noted when a Black lady is referred to as a Negro and she is assumed to be a cleaner at the hotel.|
|Blasphemy||Low impact, infrequent blasphemy is noted, which people from the Christian religion may find offensive.|
|Drug abuse||None (sic)|
|Comments||The themes are mature and complex and the film has a sustained sense of threat and menace. Themes include murders, crime, a cult, mystery, deception, betrayal and survival. The film carries no positive messages or messages against crime and murder and could be morally harmful, distressing, disturbing and confusing to impressionable children under 16 who are not cognitively mature enough to grasp the context of a mystery thriller.|

What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Michael O'Sullivan Strangers cross paths.
Jake Coyle Like its motel, El Royale is just a front.
Jim Judy While it might not suit all viewers’ tastes, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the offering and how quickly it flew by as the nearly two and a half hours played out with ease.
Tomatometer Smart, stylish, and packed with solid performances, Bad Times at the El Royale delivers pure popcorn fun with the salty tang of social subtext.
