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.

THIS WAS AN INCREDIBLE MOVIE. I HAVE SEEN IT TWICE AND STILL AM KEPT ON MY TOES. CERTAINLY LETS THE AUDIENCE PARTAKE IN THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE HOSTAGE SITUATION OF ALL INVOLVED. GREAT DIRECTOR, GREAT CAST.

I THOUGHT THE MOVIE WAS EXCELLENT AND IT DESERVED TO BE AWARDED PICTURE OF THE YEAR.. I ALSO THOUGHT BEN AFFLACK SHOULD HAVE BEEN
NOMINATED FOR DIRECTOR AND HE SHOULD HAVE WON THAT AWARD, TOO.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO EVERYONE. IT IS A PART OF HISTORY. I WILL GIVE IT TWO THUMBS UP!!!

The fillm, based on real events, was smartly written and well-acted. It was tense, but had moments of humor as well. What a rarity - a smart movie for adults!

I fidgited and squirmed in my seat until almost the very end of the movie, as it should have been, I think. I looked around a couple of times, and different people react different ways. Some were reverent, even until the last of the credits, some had no visible reaction at all. My opinion was that I appreciated the story being told. Living through that time, seemed like another news story nagging at us day after day,. It was a little more hair raising than that. I am ashamed to say I went through that passive time in my life, although being so clandestine a mission, maybe I didn't have anything to be anything more than passive about.
