Jon Hamm stars as Mason Skiles, a former U.S. diplomat, who gets sent to Beirut to negotiate a swap for the release of a terrorist leader, believed to be imprisoned by Israeli secret police, in exchange for a CIA agent who has been kidnapped. Confronted by ghosts from his past, Mason faces a formidable question: Who do you trust in a world where the truth emerges only when it's convenient – or profitable? From the writer of the Bourne trilogy, this taut action thriller also stars Rosamund Pike and Dean Norris and is being hailed by critics as "tense & ever-twisting" (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times).

    I rented this when it was the iturns $0.99 rental of the week. It was interesting, kept my attention, and came across to me as a credible look at a time and place I don't often get to see in a movie. Solid performances, filmmaking, and production values. I ended up glad that I rented it and I would recommend it -- it's well worth the time to watch.

    I guess the reviews are like Beirut - it all depends on who you ask. the 99cents rental offer was a must for me. I thought it was really good political thriller. Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike make an incredible duo in this movie! Highly recommended!

    For .99 cents, that was a darn good movie.
  • Close to the real thing

    This one feels close to the real thing. It’s not your typical 007 or MI. That’s kind of how things work in the real world.

    An entertaining political thriller that will keep you engaged . . . until the rather unsatisfying ending.
  • Good movie

    I didn’t think I was gonna like this, but it turned out to be a good movie. It’s well done.
  • Saw Trailer...Anti-America and Anti-semite

    The political bile is strong in this one...if the trailer was an honest preview of the move.
  • Bleak

    Very hard to see what has happened to Lebanon, but I guess from what I have read this is pretty accurate.
  • Tense, Gripping, Not Gimmicky

    By Elbobcat
    Some critics are praising the movie "despite its flaws" but for me this was a perfect film for a night at home when I'm ready to actually pay attention to something versus just throwing on a mainstream special-effects-fest. In short, the writing delivered a gripping, exciting plot and in the complex political environment with multiple interests complicating a seemingly straightforward, albeit high-stakes, negotiation. Excellent performances, skilled use of action, quality filmmaking all around.
