    • Excerpt: Hotel Mumbai has a remoteness, a distance that makes it look more like a landlocked The Poseidon Adventure than a story based on a true-life horror.
  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com
    • Excerpt: The tension of silence and waiting is unbearable, as each character’s flaws and heroism comes to the fore.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: While any movie about such a horrific event is subject to criticism of exploitation, Maras has given us…one which allows us to understand what it must have been like to endure this horror as well as one which honors truly heroic actions.
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: Hotel Mumbai tries so hard to separate Indian from Lashkar-e-Taiba that it forgets to separate out Islam too [as things] quickly devolve from docudrama to survival thriller.
  • Jana Monji @ Age of the Geek
    • Excerpt: One should be kind to the help and blessings come in disguise.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: The film Anthony Maras and his team have assembled shows the sort of understanding of how to capture tension, without drowning the film in unearned emotional turmoil.
  • Jonathan Richards @ santafenewmexican.com
    • Excerpt: Essentially, the movie is a sustained attack on the senses and the nerves, with cold-blooded killings piled one on top of the other by dead-eyed sociopathic fanatics following disembodied instructions from their cult leader in Pakistan, and blasting away in the name of God.
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: The adrenaline flows immediately. Intense, hair-raising and deeply humane, ‘Hotel Mumbai’ is a gripping, suspenseful achievement that overwhelms.
