What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Masego Panyane A conflict of themes in spy thriller.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Rimpeleffek van keuses hier bekyk.
Ilan Preskovsky The very definition of solid, Beirut, which is written and directed by veteran scribe, Tony Gilroy, is a perfectly competent and professional hostage-thriller. And, yet, that's kind of the rub. Here's a film that knows exactly what it's doing, that barely puts a foot wrong but is, in many respects, the cinematic equivalent of a cleanly produced and expertly played soft rock song that, for all of its professionalism, resolutely refuses to make much of an impact at all.
Tomatometer Beirut tells a complex, tightly plotted tale of international intrigue, further elevated by strong central performances from Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike.
