  • Mason Skiles lebt 1972 als Diplomat in der libanesischen Hauptstadt Beirut. Beklagen kann er sich nicht: Mittlerweile ist er sesshaft geworden und hat die schöne Nadia geheiratet und den 13-jährigen Karim unter seiner Obhut. Doch als die CIA eines Tages auftaucht, ändert sich mit einem Mal alles, denn bei Karim soll eine Verbindung zum Attentat bei den Olympischen Spielen in München bestehen… Zehn Jahre später hat Mason dem im Bürgerkrieg versunkenen Beirut längst den Rücken gekehrt und führt ein gewöhnliches Leben als Broker in den USA. Mit seiner Vergangenheit will der mittlerweile Alkoholabhängige nichts mehr am Hut haben, doch diese holt Mason eines Tages wieder ein: Die Regierung beauftragt nämlich Mason, wieder in den Dienst zu gehen und nach Beirut zu reisen. Dort soll er einen riskanten Gefangenenaustausch vollziehen, da ein amerikanischer Spion entführt wurde.

Mr. Hamm certainly makes it easy to care for Mason and all that he signifies, and it’s a pleasure to watch him just silently nurse another drink, a lifetime of regret weighing on him. Yet as Mason sits alone, the shadows closing around him, you also catch sight of a character whose past — including a cozy association with Henry Kissinger — suggests a tougher, harder and more interesting movie than the one you are watching.

Anderson does add some style to the film, doing wonders with an indie-sized budget for a film that requires a specific period setting.

Beirut is inoffensive in its familiarity, a handsome enough thriller to pass the time. What it’s lacking are stakes.

Hamm makes for a compelling guide, Bogart-weary and mind racing, assessing each situation with a readable face for the camera. Beirut won’t make him a bigger movie star, but more interesting actors are tough to find.

Pike is terrific, and Hamm has a credibly bleary, weary look. The movie’s ambitions are worthy. But it rarely turns its action into real excitement, or moves past cynicism into insight. It’s the spy movie that leaves us in the cold.

This engaging and intelligent script could have been more of both if Beirut made room for the experience of anyone besides the Americans. The filmmakers do memorable work examining what it might take to solve this one particular crisis, but do too little examining the city itself. The title promises something the movie doesn’t deliver.

Even decades after it was written Beirut is as relevant as it is entertaining, and it is very entertaining indeed.

Beirut has zero character as a setting, reduced to a generic backdrop of rubble and sand. It’s not a real place with a distinct culture in a time and political situation which any writer worth their salt could cull mountains of rich material from – it’s Scarymuslimabad, capital of Clicheistan.

Beirut is as solid a film as Hamm is a performer. The movie is not a flashy affair, but it does hit in unexpected ways and uses its pretty faces (Hamm, but also Gone Girl’s Rosamund Pike, another performer who should be ruling the world) to deliver something you will likely expect, but nonetheless appreciate.

Increasingly tense and benefiting from a well-thought-out script by Tony Gilroy, it finds a slim opening for heroics in a place where all parties are tainted.
