  • 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.

    August 6, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Damascus Cover was the last film Hurt made - but it isn't worth seeking out for that reason, or many others.

    August 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • [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.

    August 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Setting and performances aside, Damascus Cover is a forgettable spy thriller that bulldozes over its real-life relevance in favour of shoehorned romance and hackneyed characters.

    August 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    July 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.
