Goofs

The injured terrorist in the room where the hostages are held uses a hotel phone (landline) to call home to Pakistan and gets through on first attempt. He would have had to know how to get an outside line on a hotel phone, the country code for Pakistan, the area code for his village besides his families phone no. This is highly unlikely for somebody who is not acquainted with modern amenities, (even the WC causes consternation) and who would not have been trained or expected to communicate with anything other than the mobile phone they were provided with.

An intense, unrelenting look at this cowardly act of pure evil and the selfless heroism of those who tried to help
14 March 2019 | by MrDHWongSee all my reviews

Hotel Mumbai is a crime thriller film based on the Mumbai terrorist attacks of 2008. Starring Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, and Jason Isaacs, it is an intense, unrelenting look at this cowardly act of pure evil and the selfless heroism of those who tried to help.

In late November 2008, a group of ten terrorists arrive in Mumbai, India by a small boat. Upon splitting up, the terrorists travel to various locations around the populated city to massacre as many innocent people as they can. After taking out several civilians in smaller locations, the surviving members of the group meet up at the luxurious Taj Mahal Palace Hotel to finish their act of terror. While they shoot their way through the hallways, the hotel's staff put their lives in the line of fire in an attempt to save as many guests as possible.

As unflinching as it is jarring, Hotel Mumbai is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that successfully showcases the heroism of the titular hotel's brave staff members in an earnest, collected manner. Despite the film's two hour runtime, not once is it ever boring thanks to the creative direction of Anthony Maras, who puts his audience right at the forefront of the conflict. The film's violence, while not too graphic, is extremely intense as no one is spared from the terrorist's gunfire, not even small children or the elderly. If one can stomach enough of the bloodshed to appreciate this otherwise well-made movie, then it is certainly worth at least one viewing. However, being that this is not for the faint of heart, viewer discretion is strongly advised

I rate it 8.5/10
