This is a MUST SEE movie. Well done with kudos to Ben Aflick who both directed and acted in this suspense filled drama about the 1979 US embassy hostage crisis in Iran. It is a winner. At the end of the move everyone in my theater was clapping with some on their feet. How often does that happen???

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!

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.

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.
