Damascus Cover

Critics Consensus

Damascus Cover is essentially every bit the hackneyed espionage drama that any veteran of '90s action thrillers might expect after reading its title.

  • [An] unfortunately rather ropey film, destined to be blearily viewed on a thousand long-haul flights or channel-hoppingly glimpsed on your way past ITV4.

  • The overarching idea of "Damascus Cover"... provides a worthy payoff: the idea that there are alliances that transcend religious wars and nationalistic sentiments for the sake of saving lives.

  • Berk's movie is too plodding and predictable to generate anything more than a modest level of suspense; worse, it lacks enough excitement to qualify even as instantly forgettable popcorn entertainment.

  • Features the usual political-thriller tropes - tough but haunted protagonist, zigzag of foreign locales, rival spies, arcane twists, shifting allegiances, wedged-in romance - without adding much that feels unique or exciting.

  • Overstuffed with groaningly familiar espionage tropes.

    Jul 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The persuasive use of real locations only underlines the frustrating sketchiness when it comes to exploring the potentially fascinating intricacies of Israeli-Syrian power play.
