Critic Reviews for Beirut

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Mostly the film trades in an agreeably old-school form of cinematic espionage intrigue.

The stakes in "Beirut" are high (a high-ranking official has been kidnapped, and everyone seems convinced that he's going to spill all kinds of secrets), but [Jon] Hamm lopes through the process without much conviction.

A period political thriller whose motivations remain timely.

If ever you needed a reminder as to how much Hollywood still really, really hates Muslims, look no further than the opening of Beirut.

January 27, 2018 | Rating: D | Full Review…

A smart, entertaining adult thriller - a throwback to a pre-superhero era in blockbuster filmmaking.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Beirut proves surprisingly sensitive in its handling of the Middle East, mapping out an area of nuanced power struggle rather than a cartoon Casablanca-style warzone.
