This is a compelling drama, with some interesting characters. It is a story worth telling and movie worth seeing, because this could happen anywhere. I am surprised it hasn't happened in more places, especially in the United States.

Hotel Mumbai grants an equally intense subjectivity to its young terrorists as to their victims. Their callous fanaticism is only underscored when Maras reveals them as naïve doofuses...

This was a tough movie to sit through...this is a proper thriller, with each beat and moment landing...

Hotel Mumbai is a disturbing and haunting reminder of what so many endured.
December 2, 2019
Anthony Maras is successful at staging the horrors of that night and the scale and extent of the tragedy is too vast to leave you unmoved.
December 2, 2019
It's hard to imagine a more efficient way to lend flesh and blood to the remembrance of that night.
December 2, 2019
Though it's not as gripping nor, ultimately, as powerful as it might have been, Hotel Mumbai is not exploitative in the ways many had feared and tells its story well enough to satisfy most viewers.

Exhilarating but never exploitative, Hotel Mumbai does for 26/11 what United 93 did for 9/11. So of course it makes sense that it took over a year for the film to secure distribution in a country whose people it honours so graciously.

The human interest drama is personified in the form of Armie Hammer's and Nazanin Boniadi's characters.

Hotel Mumbai isn't an easy film to watch or to like. But it is a brutally efficient account of some horrible events that paint a grim reality for those with their eyes and ears on the volatile instability of our current world.
October 10, 2019
Hotel Mumbai is thoughtful and considered in its approach - more so, at least, than we usually expect from glossy adaptations of international tragedy.

It's an extremely well-produced film that achieves what it sets out to do, namely shock an audience with the horror of those events, it's just hard to call it entertainment when there's nothing to enjoy here. However it is certainly worthy of respect.

Given its real-life inspiration, there's something uncomfortable about Hotel Mumbai's devotion to showing the true horror of what happened, but it leaves you in no doubt of the heroism of those involved.

There is barely a moment in this film that isn't fraught with heart-stopping suspense, and some of the acts of heroism are emotionally shattering. Which makes the final 20 minutes even more wrenching. This isn't entertainment, it feels like history.

It's a tense and sometimes moving directorial debut for Maras, an Australian who until now has specialised in shorts.

This is a bold, decent film that will, quite rightly, stay with you for some time.

Superbly directed and edited, this is a shockingly realistic depiction of true life events that makes for uncomfortable viewing.

The mass slaughter that ensues is necessarily bloody and brutal, albeit queasily exciting too...

September 26, 2019
The film would have benefitted from more context and less savagery, but there's no denying its accomplishment as a heart-in-mouth drama that never loses its grip, nor its ability to disturb and move in equal measure.
