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.

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.

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.

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!

This was one of the better films I have seen in some time. The script is excellent, very funny. The story is an incredible one. I general don't like Ben Afleck but I thought he held his own as an actor and a director. Great suspense. I little bit of a nail biter at the end, one has to wonder if it all came down like that, but if you can overlook that, all thumbs up.
