The original and better version of beasts of no nation.

Intense story that everyone should see! Not the best movie before sleep.

While how exactly the refugees were treated in the hotel and the manager's motivations might be more fitting history to a narrative rather than fitting a narrative to history, I think that the movie went about capturing what it would be like to be holed up in a hotel while genocide goes on around you well. Don Cheadle's performance was very good. One of those movies that's very good but I'm not sure I'd watch it again.

It transitions from a political thriller to a historical drama whilst creating a similar atmosphere of another crisis, with hard emotions and courageous inspirational spirit that drew enough aura to be affective and felt by the viewers, especially how Cheadle performed at his best in the center of the aura casting. It truly is a sad one as you would expect, but the value of it reached up to a rating of being really good based on its power. (B+)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

A sobering and heartfelt tale about massacre that took place in Rwanda while most of the world looked away.

The genocides in Rwanda are an often neglected topic of political discussion. This movie depicts what ordinary people will do to protect others.

An important story to tell....just semi-muddled storytelling. Had to visit Wikipedia to better understand all the little nuances of the story.

A tremendous telling of a terrible and terrifying story.

Grade: A

not a bad movie but a bit depressing.
½ January 22, 2016
Excellent movie just to watch Don Cheadle in an outstanding role.

Fantastic piece on the Rwandan genocide that felt like it placed you in the hotel also.
½ January 15, 2016
Heartbreaking, and gripping from beginning to end.

A favorite of mine. An inspiring story told well with great performances.
½ December 17, 2015
This is a good movie, but its just too rough of a subject for me at this point in time. With all this talk of refugees in this country and what not, its just a reminder of how horrible the world is.

While the pace was a little slow for me and the atrocities of the Rwandan Genocide seemed to be a little censored, the film offers a great heartfelt look at a man trying to protect his family and keep his people alive in the middle of turmoil and injustice.

A film about courage in the face of evil. The makers want to inspire people that bravery, and the belief in the dignity of all human beings, can overcome hatred.

Hotel Rwanda is a deeply-touching movie that features terrific performances from Don Cheadle and Joaquin Phoenix.
The story is insightful and it is told and portrayed at a high level of accuracy.

Sometimes, one good man in this world can make a huge difference to the lives of many. Why do humans periodically go on insane genocidal killing sprees? Why do so many people turn their backs when it happens?

This movie is at times a tearjerker. If you watched Schindler's List and felt it was important, that it told a tale of many who are no longer around to tell their story, this is the same sort of thing, about what happened in Rwanda not that long ago. To see the difference that one person can make, when willing to take a stand and do SOMETHING, is inspiring. Prepare to be inspired.

Some of the worst atrocities in the history of mankind took place in the country of Rwanda--and in an era of high-speed communication and round the clock news, the events went almost unnoticed by the rest of the world. In only three months, one million people were brutally murdered. In the face of these unspeakable actions, inspired by his love for his family, an ordinary man summons extraordinary courage to save the lives of over a thousand helpless refugees, by granting them shelter in the hotel he manages.
