Film Review - The Nile Hilton Incident

NILE HILTON 3

“The Nile Hilton Incident” takes a common detective story and positions it into the middle of world-changing history. It’s a special way to squeeze suspense out of a lukewarm mystery, with the story taking place during the countdown period to the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, giving the production an end game of protest chaos (partially inspired by police brutality) that hangs in the air like a toxic cloud. Writer/director Tarik Saleh is smart to bring the picture to a boil in this special way, as the rest of the “The Nile Hotel Incident” is largely lacking in suspense and intrigue, with its cultural fingerprint doing most of the work as the journey winds through corruption, blackmail, and murder.  Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
