The New York Times by A.O. Scott

A mellow dream of a movie that's an acquired taste. It's attractive because of the oblique way that Mr. Wenders ambles through a murder mystery that's stronger on characterization than on plot.


USA Today by Andy Seiler

Wenders creates an imaginative, stylized cityscape, but what's missing is the compelling story that could bring the setting to life.


New York Daily News by Elizabeth Weitzman

Conceived by U2's Bono, it's not quite as bad as it might have been. After all, its own star, Mel Gibson, has famously called this tale of destitute misfits "as boring as a dog's a——."

30 by Ernest Hardy

The film isn't very good. The Million Dollar Hotel is an uneasy melding of Hollywood shtick and art-house sensibilities.
