This film is well written and directed. I was 33 at the time of this event, so I recall it vividly. The acting is very good and the intensity of the movie holds steady throughout. It has some funny lines as well as several serious moments. I did think that the usage of the F word was extreme. I will not address the political aspects of this movie. This is not the place for that. I will say that I thought the comments of President Carter at the end of the film should have been deleted. I still recommend the film as it is a well done film.

Was one of the best true story movies I've seen in a long time. Ben Affleck was amazing, as were John Goodman, Alan Arkin and all the others. Great movie and would highly recommend!

To viewers of a certain age the movie had special significance. I remember reading that the Canadians had smuggled the 6 Americans out. I had never read that it was a CIA operation. The movie took me back to that time. The background, cars hairstyles etc, was perfect. The movie quickly drew me in. One quickly felt the fear at the embassy and the frustration in devising the plan for extraction. The final scenes were riviting. Don't miss the very end!! Who is Ian?

Really a terrific movie. Even tho we know how it ends, the suspense is unbelievable! A real adult movie -- no gratuitous sex or violence....actually no sex at all, and only necessary violence. A no-effort, thoroughly enjoyable history lesson, and uncannily timely.
