I fidgited and squirmed in my seat until almost the very end of the movie, as it should have been, I think. I looked around a couple of times, and different people react different ways. Some were reverent, even until the last of the credits, some had no visible reaction at all. My opinion was that I appreciated the story being told. Living through that time, seemed like another news story nagging at us day after day,. It was a little more hair raising than that. I am ashamed to say I went through that passive time in my life, although being so clandestine a mission, maybe I didn't have anything to be anything more than passive about.

I was in my 20's when the hostage crisis was going on. I had been to Tehran 1 year ealier as a flight attendat for PanAm and remember the airport well. This was a great movie and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. One of the best movies I have seen and Ben Affleck is easy on the eyes.

Very powerful film-even thuogh you know what will happen the suspense is overwhelming.
acting and screen writing is superb. Riveting to the point where you do not want to get up after the end of the film. A must see film for all.

Other than an animated G Rated Disney Movie, this is the first time in a long time of going to movies I have actually witnessed people clapping in appreciation and endorsement. Leave the children at home, all adults must GO!

Ben Affleck's film wowed us! We were at the edge of our seats from beginning to end, watching recent history unfold with sure-handed direction, fabulous acting, incredible attention to detail, and best of all an intelligent, big-hearted and honest telling of a complicated true story. Wow! I was still shaking when we left the theater and can't wait to see it again.
