91 out of 100 Ben Affleck proves you don't need guns and explosions to make a motion picture suspenseful, you need patience, brilliant acting and intense imagery.

This movie is great for just about any type of movie you are looking for. It is touching, funny, motivating, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I literally was biting my nails during it. What is exceptionally great about this movie is that it tells such a great story from our history and they use clips of real life news reports from 1979/1980. I was in a packed full theater and, with the exception of a handful of people, everyone sat not making a move as the credits started rolling and they showed pictures from the actual events. President Carter then says words about this event and it is extremely moving. This is one film that you do not want to miss and one that is probably best seen in a theater and not waiting for the DVD.

In an era of green screen action movies and overdone "romantic" comedies, Argo is in a class of its own. It is thrilling, intense, fascinating mixed with comedic moments which are subtle and clever. The script, direction, acting, pacing are all masterful. I thought it was the best way to spend 2 hours.

Another great Oscar contender! This movie really affected me personally because I remember when it occured and following the news reports on television. The acting was superb and the details uncanny. Ben Affleck really did his research and it showed!!! I also read Ken Follet's book On Wings of Eagles concerning the Iranian revolution and the American hostages during President Carter's time in office. This was a spectacular film and I would recommend it to everyone! Please see it in the theater, if possible. I WILL add this to my collection of DVDs when it comes out! Extremely well made!!!!
