This movie captures the suspense of a war torn Beirut. It has before scenes showing the city as an international and cosmopolitan place with culture. It also shows it after a significant war that reduced it to a beat up and dangerous city in the cross hairs of several factions. It takes us along as passengers into an increasingly dangerous and twisted story of recovering a captive from some unsavory characters who may or may not be trusted from scene to scene. All does not go to plan. The acting is skilled and does not get in the way of moving the story along.
