not a bad movie but a bit depressing.

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.

A favorite of mine. An inspiring story told well with great performances.

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.

It's good, but depressing. I can't really recommend it for entertainment value, but if you are interested in the true events that this is based on, then give it a try.

Easy to see why Cheadle wonderful performance was nominated for best actor and this movie is hard to watch but easy to appreciate.
August 4, 2015
This movie is very disturbing. That's what I was looking for. An entirely different kind of movie than Shindler's List or The Killing Fields. This movie is brutal, brutal and disturbing. Nolte sucks as almost always.

With a strong performance by Don Cheadle, Hotel Rwanda is a heart-rending story based on the massacre in Rwanda
July 15, 2015
Exceptional movie and sad events that show how humanity is lost in this world and the apathy by other countries is frightening. One man saved so many, one man who didn't know he had it in him.

Hotel Rwanda boasts two exceptional lead performances that give heart to a true story so horrific (albeit so amazingly told) it might be easier to pretend said story did not happen. But then the majority of humanity did do that, didn't they?
