The film had its world premiere at the SXSW Film festival in March where it received mixed reviews and was acquired by Film Arcade and Lionsgate.

Neil Genzlinger from the New York Times gave the film a positive review and stated, "Hurricane Katrina has already been pretty thoroughly mined for documentaries and fictional stories, but 'Hours' holds your interest nonetheless."

Joe Leydon from Variety also gave the film a positive review and stated, "An ingeniously simple setup is cunningly exploited for maximum suspense in Hours, a slow-building, consistently engrossing drama."

Alan Scherstuhl from Village Voice also gave the film a great review and said, "Here's a hero who's maybe like you, suffering like you might but also scraping through like you hope you could."

However, Kyle Smith from the New York Post gave the film a negative review and said, "To the extent the film has an idea, it's that people can be at their worst (or best) in extremis, but the situations it devises (such as an armed looter who wanders in to steal some of Nolan's junk food) are blandly realized."

Time Out New York's R. Kurt Osenlund also disliked it and wrote, "There's something vexing about the use of a baby as narrative device, and the movie leans too heavily on her inborn potential for heart-tuggery."

The movie was directed by Eric Heisserer. "The Hours" is rated PG-13 for thematic elements, violence and drug material.
