“HO­TEL MUMBAI”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Movies This Week -

The 2008 ter­ror­ist at­tacks staged across the In­dian city of Mumbai – with the Taj Ma­hal Palace Ho­tel among the tar­gets – are dra­ma­tized in di­rec­tor and co-writer Anthony Maras’ tense film. Dev Pa­tel (“Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire”) plays a waiter who gets caught in the tu­mult at the ho­tel, try­ing to keep guests safe and help police get the in­for­ma­tion they need to stop the lethal in­vaders. Ar­mie Ham­mer also stars as an Amer­i­can vis­i­tor, the hus­band of a for­eign heiress (Nazanin Bo­niadi, “Coun­ter­part”), who re­lies on his own wits and courage to try to help defuse the sit­u­a­tion. Por­tray­ing a spe­cial-forces vet­eran, Ja­son Isaacs is in the in­ter­na­tional cast as well. ★★★ (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
