All Critics (120) | Top Critics (29)

Despite possessing unusually detailed context for a thriller, it's a bit like diplomatic efforts in the region: the same old story.

Gilroy paints a nuanced picture of the civil conflict in Lebanon, noting the U.S. and Israeli agendas at work and the inner tensions of the PLO, yet this information serves to clarify and accelerate the action.

With four Bourne thrillers to his credit, it's safe to assume that screenwriter Tony Gilroy could have penned this in his sleep. He didn't.

Jon Hamm adds movie-star class and a world-weary Don Draper touch to this mediocre spy thriller containing plot twists you may think are reductive of the Muslim world. You're not wrong.

Apr 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Beirut is as solid a film as Hamm is a performer.

There are no extraneous pieces, everything fits together like a puzzle. And Hamm is that puzzle's key piece.
