To viewers of a certain age the movie had special significance. I remember reading that the Canadians had smuggled the 6 Americans out. I had never read that it was a CIA operation. The movie took me back to that time. The background, cars hairstyles etc, was perfect. The movie quickly drew me in. One quickly felt the fear at the embassy and the frustration in devising the plan for extraction. The final scenes were riviting. Don't miss the very end!! Who is Ian?

Really a terrific movie. Even tho we know how it ends, the suspense is unbelievable! A real adult movie -- no gratuitous sex or violence....actually no sex at all, and only necessary violence. A no-effort, thoroughly enjoyable history lesson, and uncannily timely.

In an era of green screen action movies and overdone "romantic" comedies, Argo is in a class of its own. It is thrilling, intense, fascinating mixed with comedic moments which are subtle and clever. The script, direction, acting, pacing are all masterful. I thought it was the best way to spend 2 hours.
