What do we do with all this filmmaking dexterity when it serves an effort that feels exploitative and too soon?

We can't in all good conscience treat cinematic representations of historical traumas as mere generic exercises in form.

n today's world we need heroes. We need to feel good about humans. Though this is a film which shows some of the worst behaviour, it also shows what we are capable of...love, bravery, heroism, and humanity.

Hotel Mumbai is not documentary, yet it feels like we've borne witness to something undeniably real by the time it's over.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 5, 2019
Anthony Maras, directing his first feature, commands compellingly human performances that make you care about the people who came to the luxury hotel without knowing what they were getting into...You'll tense up and maybe even hold your breath...
April 4, 2019
A gripping but flawed docudrama about a real-life tragedy caused by terrorists in Mumbai, India.

April 3, 2019
Hotel Mumbai is a bloody, violent look at a bloody, violent tragedy. Perhaps it pushes things a little too far in its viscerality, but it does so in service to the narrative.

Hotel Mumbai... is more about heroism than horror, and it is one fine film.
April 3, 2019
There's nothing especially transcendent in Maras' storytelling -- some epiphany that would make wading through all the bloodshed more meaningful.

Harrowing and realistic

The live-action adaptation of a very simplistic 1941 animated Disney movie has the magic of misfits to convince me that "Dumbo" actually needed a remake to remind us of the story's wonder.

The sprawling cast means some of the characters remain little more than sketches.
April 1, 2019
The real reason Hotel Mumbai feels different is that unlike other films where the horror takes place in foreign countries, Hotel Mumbai puts more effort into the people who actually reside in the country where the bloodshed takes place.

"Hotel Mumbai" is a well-told docudrama that does a fine job of showing us the horror of the fanatical attack and the bravery and courage of those who fought back.
Full Review | Original Score: B

Hotel Mumbai may not be a perfect example of its genre, but its restraint from ideological grandstanding and a top-notch technical control of tone make it worthy of a watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.2/10

There is value... in its subjective approach. It is used here to celebrate "ordinary" heroes, and it's hard not to conclude that they deserve it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
