This movie should be show in film school as a lesson in how to take a compelling true story and make it a nail biter even though history tells us how the story really ends.

If you like edge of your seat suspense, some adult humor, and a fact based story ... this is a must see movie! Great shooting; makes you feel like your right there. Sticks to the historical storyline very well. There was undoubtedly a little Hollywood rewrite for added suspense, but very little. Very believable acting! Loved it! Would see it again loved it!

a masterpiece. Both the truth upon which it's based as well as the film in all aspects are incredible. The plan worked because people embraced the impossible with passion and dedication [and thankfully our technology was not then what it is today]. Good to see Affleck reconnect with the genius he showed with "Good Will Hunting". A spot on cast!

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???

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.
