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.
Roger EbertFull 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 StoneFull 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.

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.
