DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Thriller - This is a violent fact-based drama/thriller aimed at older adults. Armie Hammer is top- billed, but this is more of an ensemble film, with Dev Patel, Jason Isaacs, and others also having equally weighted roles. Language and adult subject matter in addition to the bloody violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...this skilled, historical action film was one of the toughest, most disquieting sits I can remember in a while... In "Hotel Mumbai,” the writing duo persistently emphasizes the complex humanity of the characters. In that, we are not just watching a jingoistic, thinly sketched battle between the good and the bad.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Hotel Mumbai remains an uneasy blend of fact and fiction that feels dwarfed by the documentary footage that ends the film. You can't quarrel with hard truth. Hotel Mumbai is something else. There is solid professionalism in the way Hotel Mumbai gets the job done.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We were not able to collect enough reviews to display them normally but I can tell you that the 10 reviews we received were very high. My wife and I also thought this movie was very good, but it was difficult to watch due to the brutal, cold blooded killing. Everyone indicated that they were Satisfied or Very Satisfied. All would recommend it, most strongly, to friends.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In November 2008, jihadists from Pakistan staged a series of devastating terror attacks across Mumbai, hurling India's most populous city into utter chaos. During the three-day standoff, these gunmen seized the legendary Taj Mahal Palace Hotel with over 500 guests and employees trapped inside.

A searing, immersive cinematic experience, HOTEL MUMBAI focuses on the events that transpired at the legendary Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, targeted as the pre-eminent symbol of Indian progress and diversity. In the thick of the maelstrom, people from many different countries, cultures, creeds and social classes must find a way to organize and escape in the face of constant peril.

Among the hotel staff is renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a gentle Sikh waiter (Dev Patel), who risk everything to protect their guests. And as the world media watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi) make unthinkable sacrifices to defend their newborn child, while a steely Russian millionaire (Jason Isaacs) seems only interested in protecting himself.
