Hotel Mumbai Reviews
based on the true events of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India the film depicts the bombings and the siege of the Taj Hotel
not only were 50 guests trapped but several staff members as well, most of whom stayed behind to keep each other safe
the film wastes no time showing the terrorists fully committing to their plan of attack to honor what they've felt they lost
they believe in sending their own message for the world to hear
aside from Dev Petel as an employee, Armie Hammer as a father and a newlywed to Jason Issacs as a Russian elite most of the other players are unknown
but they amazingly play the real-life victims desperate to escape as well as work together
director Anthony Maras shows a real-life traumatic experience of ordinary individuals pulling together in desperate times in the most unexpected of dyer circumstances
The pacing of the movie kept you on edge and a feeling of stress helped put you in the state of mind that showed a fraction of what the individuals involved felt. The acting was fantastic, especially Dev Patel, who is one of the best actors of our generation. Anupam Kher and Amandeep Singh provided amazing performances on both sides of the story.
The story draws you in and you and keeps you there. I would highly recommend this movie.
