Review: Beirut

Directed by Brad Anderson from a screenplay by Tony Gilroy, Beirut has great pedigree, but fails to deliver as either a highly charged political thriller, or a slow-burn spy caper. John Hamm plays an alcoholic diplomat dragged back to the city that destroyed his family. As the complex plot and Middle East machinations unfold, it’s pretty hard to care much. Compared to the likes of Gilroy’s Michael Clayton and Bourne movie scripts, it’s a well-made but pretty dull affair that relies almost entirely on its lead actor’s charisma. Mildly entertaining, but ultimately too detached and dull to make a lasting impression.
