Critic Reviews of "Damascus Cover"VarietyJuly 19, 2018
Berk's movie is too plodding and predictable to generate anything more than a modest level of suspense; worse, it lacks enough excitement to qualify even as instantly forgettable popcorn entertainment.Los Angeles TimesJuly 19, 2018
Features the usual political-thriller tropes - tough but haunted protagonist, zigzag of foreign locales, rival spies, arcane twists, shifting allegiances, wedged-in romance - without adding much that feels unique or exciting.Hollywood ReporterJuly 05, 2018
Overstuffed with groaningly familiar espionage tropes.Shadows on the WallJuly 24, 2018
At least the film looks good.Film ThreatJuly 23, 2018
On the surface, [Cover] had a lot going for it: from the cast to the art direction to the verisimilitude of long-lived hostilities. But, particularly in the shadow of the incredible humanitarian crisis, the film felt like a series of missed opportunities.Tolucan TimesJuly 22, 2018
...an acceptably tense spy thriller...Considering this indie was shot on a $5 million budget, it's well done with atmospheric locations shots.CinemalogueJuly 20, 2018
... a James Bond or Jason Bourne wannabe that lacks suspense and becomes more tedious with each eye-rolling twist.Common Sense MediaJuly 20, 2018
1989-set spy thriller has violence and sex.Mark Reviews MoviesJuly 19, 2018
Damascus Cover feels routine.Blu-ray.comJuly 19, 2018
There's not enough gas in the tank here, finding star Jonathan Rhys Meyers doing all the heavy lifting when it comes time to add some intensity to the comatose effort.CultureCatchJuly 16, 2018
Berk tries to capture the inanities of the Middle East: how both sides have to go through the motions of cat and mouse, constantly switching who's the feline and who's the rodent, but you can't care when the characters are this one-dimensional.Flickering MythJuly 15, 2018
The only thing anyone will remember about Damascus Cover is that it marks the final on-screen appearance of the now deceased tremendous actor John Hurt
