This is a film that moves through its story like a trained professional with an unwavering eye that stays on target.
March 30, 2020
A by-the-numbers thriller that lacks punch.
March 11, 2020
...it never quite manages to turn this corner from being a movie that sounds like a good idea to one that actually is one.
February 3, 2020
No doubt, this is Hamm's finest role to date after his Mad Men series...

November 11, 2019
Not much that you haven't seen before, from the war-torn Middle Eastern city setting to exchanges illuminated by headlights, but it's still worth a look thanks to the intelligence and political clout of Gilroy's script combined with Hamm's star power.

There's political intrigue abound in Beirut. The actors do their jobs well and director Brad Anderson has put together a thriller that sometimes thrills, when it's feeling gracious.

Hamm's nuanced performance elevates the actor to stardom.
March 20, 2019
Gilroy often fares better with more human elements to ground his often too-complex-by-half plotting, and here the solid cast makes the most of it.

Imagine that Mad Men's Don Draper got out of the advertising business and went into the spy game.

December 21, 2018
Feels like a throwback to old school political thrillers of the past and delivers little fresh or trendy by way of its story line.

Beirut is a disappointing display of what filmmaking can accomplish in terms of offering artistic reflection into the world's affairs.

August 24, 2018
It's not edge-of-your-seat riveting, but it is interesting enough to get audiences to the end.
August 23, 2018
Jon Hamm is like the Don Draper version of James Bond: sardonic, invested, talented but world weary and wryly humorous.
August 20, 2018
Tony Gilroy's script is intricate and intelligent, with an appropriately cynical view of US foreign relations. And Hamm makes hay with his best role since Mad Men.
