      • Aug 02, 2019

        Beirut is an exciting political thriller that's full of intrigue. The story follows a former US diplomat who's recruited by the CIA to negotiate a hostage exchange in Beirut, but when internal politics get in the way he's forced to go outsider of official channels to save the hostage. Starring Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, and Mark Pellegrino, the film has a pretty strong cast. And it does a good job at creating tension and suspense. Also, the costumes and sets are especially well-done, creating an authentic look and feel for the time period. However, it can be a little confusing to follow the different political factions and the deals and trades being made. Yet despite a few script problems, Beirut is an intense and gripping drama.
