Although I lived through the Iran crisis and remember vividly the release of the hostages on January 20, 1981, I had no idea of what happened with the six Americans who were protected by the Canadian ambassador. This film is genius in portraying the true events. Ben Affleck and George Clooney have created an outstanding documentary of a previously unknown event in American history.

Ben Affleck's best film to date. Very intelligent and well-crafted, solid performances, nicely paced and quite riveting. Ben Affleck delivered on screen and off in his role as Tony Mendez and in the director's chair. This is a movie that definitely lives up to the hype.

I was pretty young during the Iran Hostage Crisis, and never even knew about these six Americans. Great story, great script,and had you on the edge of you seat the whole film. Be sure to watch all the credits at the end so you can see what a great job they did making the actors look exactly like the real people involved - from the hostages to the LA film team.

Very nicely done thriller. Well constructed and directed. It strays away a bit from the original story but it's nerve-wracking and keeps you on the edge of your seat almost all the time until the end.

Terrific picture. Edge of your seat excitement even though you know how it ends before you even buy your ticket. Not for kids because of language and some graphic I images.
