"Nations, like people, can go mad. Hotel Rwanda depicts a spasm of madness that went through Rwanda . . . . It's an extraordinary and effective film with many distinct merits."
—Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film works not because the screen is filled with meaningless special effects, formless action and vast digital armies, but because Cheadle, Nolte and the filmmakers are interested in how two men choose to function in an impossible situation. Because we sympathize with these men, we are moved by the film."
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Hotel Rwanda emerges as an African version of Schindler's List."—Claudia Puig, USA Today
