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.

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.

This is the most authentic movie I have ever seen. The director Ben Affleck made you feel like you were in the 1970's. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat. I lived in Tehran in the 70's and this movie brought back all of the memories. We had groups all over the US that lived in Tehran go to see the movie this weekend.

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.
