From Amazon.co.uk

Solidly built around a subtle yet commanding performance by Don Cheadle, Hotel Rwanda emerged as one of the most highly-praised dramas of 2004. In a role that demands his quietly riveting presence in nearly every scene, Cheadle plays real-life hero Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager in the Rwandan capital of Kigali who in 1994 saved 1,200 Rwandan "guests" from certain death during the genocidal clash between tribal Hutus, who slaughtered a million victims, and the horrified Tutsis, who found safe haven or died. Giving his best performance since his breakthrough role in Devil in a Blue Dress, Cheadle plays Rusesabagina as he really was during the ensuing chaos: "an expert in situational ethics" (as described by critic Roger Ebert), doing what he morally had to do, at great risk and potential sacrifice, with an understanding that wartime negotiations are largely a game of subterfuge, cooperation, and clever bribery. Aided by a United Nations official (Nick Nolte), he worked a saintly miracle, and director Terry George (Some Mother's Son) brings formidable social conscience to bear on a true story you won't soon forget. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally brilliant 10 July 2005
Format:DVD
Based on a true story, Hotel Rwanda is by far one of the most powerful and emotionally stirring films I've seen this year. Terry George's second film shows us that we can expect great things from this man. It seems his pairing with Jim Sheridan has allowed him to learn so much from him and exibits that he has learnt everything there is to know from the great director and become one himself. The film takes place during the genocide in Rwanda when the Hutu extremists commenced a mass slauter of the Tutsi minority. While the killing happened all that the western powers did was ignore this atrocity until the Tutsi rebels had driven the extremists out. This story is about Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle) a Hutu who used the hotel he ran to save the lives of innocent Tutsis by sheltering them within the hotel. Cheadle gives a powerful performance as the wealthy manager who cleverly uses his high connections with both the western world and Hutu officials to save as many as he could. Hotel Rwanda's most impressive scene is when the western countries order that all their citizens be evacuated. George masterfully makes you feel shame (if you live in a western country) that your country participated in that and turned a blind eye to the death that was going on in Rwanda in that order of cowardice. I highly recommend this film if you have even the slightest interest, I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hope Spring Eternal 27 April 2006
Format:DVD
This is painful viewing, but only from the rollercoaster of emotions you will experience. You will become absorbed by the raw power of this film. You will feel anger,desperation and humility in equal amounts. On a par with the equally excellent Killing Fields, the over-riding questions at the end of the film are how and why this happened. It is a sad inditement of the West and the UN that they did so little, so late. Out of adversity comes hope, out of madness comes sanity. A truly remarkable film. A truly remarkable man.....

5.0 out of 5 stars "We must shame them into sending help" 26 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
"Hotel Rwanda" isn't about entertainment, but rather about past mistakes and lessons that the International Community must learn from them. Unfortunately, the price of some mistakes is too high...
In the case of the Rwandan genocide, the price of non-intervention was a million Tutsi victims, murdered by Hutus in 1994, while the International Community did nothing even though the UN had troops there. As one Colonel of the UN's forces (Nick Nolte) in the film said, "We are here as peacekeepers, not as peacemakers". Foreigners who happened to be in Rwanda could leave the country, whereas the Tutsis were left to die. That was quite ironic, actually, if we take into account that the division of the people in Rwanda between Hutus and Tutsi wasn't natural, but rather imposed by their European colonisers.
Rwanda was, at the time these events happened, a place where unlikely heroes were all that was left. One of them was Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), assistant hotel manager of a four-stars hotel and Hutu. His wife Tatiana (Sophie Okonedo)was Tutsi, though, and his children were considered Tutsis too. ... When mayhem began and Paul was left in charge of the hotel, he stepped up and started to hide there other Tutsis that had nowhere to go. "Hotel Rwanda" allows viewers to understand how difficult it was for Paul Rusesabagina to stay alive, and protect the people he took under his wing in a time when many armed Hutus wanted to kill the "cockroaches" (as they called the Tutsis).
Watching this movie is quite striking, as it is based on a true story. Paul Rusesabagina exists, and he ultimately managed to save more than 1200 people from certain death, taking them to a safe haven.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Inspiring 12 Dec 2006
By Nate
Format:DVD
This is a great movie, there is no doubt about it. Don Cheadle turns out his best performance ever and its great to see that a lot of research obviously went into this film from the actors, the writers and the director.

The movie stays very true to detail, and it is so inspiring to witness the courage of one man, who is almost like a modern day jesus christ. This will definitely leave an effect on everyone who watches it and make you appreciate everything you have in your life.

The special features are very good too, featuring a 30min documentary of the making of the movie which is entertaining and informative and the commentary is very interesting indeed.

I strongly recomend this movie to not only fans of war and history movies but to anyone who likes a good drama.

Another highlight is the performance of sophie onokedo, who is actually British, but is exceptional as the female lead, the wife of the hotel manager.

Buy this movie even if you haven't already seen it, you won't regret it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying and gripping 26 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
I found that this film wasn't as hard to watch as I thought it would be, but even still I made the mistake of watching it before collecting my son from nursery, and a few people no doubt were surprised to see me so desolate. Cheadle's family are the catalyst for the viewer's anguish and each member plays their part beautifully, with compassion, determination and resolution. It is not the barbarism of the two opposing factions that disgust you. although yes, they are horrific, but the lack of intervention, rescue and aid these poor people were denied by the world at large. Powerful and disturbing , this film is a must-see.
