Unfortunately really entertaining
5 September 2019 | by sn3zSee all my reviews

I know that you shouldn't find real tragedy entertaining but if they keep packaging it like this with lots of gunfire, explosions, loud tense music, obvious bad guys and obvious good guys, then what can I do?

Our whole lives as moviegoers we have been getting entertained by real death and mayhem movies. I had a friend who used to use the Saving Private Ryan beach opening as a demo for his home theater system. 'Listen to the explosions!' he'd cry. United 93 was dramatic as hell and I cried at the end but was also excited by it.

Hotel Mumbai is entertaining as hell and sad as hell but soooo goddam entertaining. It's like Die Hard without a Hollywood hero.

Enjoy it because as soon as you turn a real life event into a high budget movie it's message is lost and it's just my Friday night disposable movie fodder. :(
