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!

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!

That Ben Affleck got snubbed for Best Director at the Oscars is beyond belief. This is an excellent movie that keeps you on the seat of your chair many times through it.
