Finally a decent movie. This is not a movie you watch over and over, but I'm glad I saw it. Very entertaining from beginning to end. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I went to the movie dine in theater at disney with a mature audience and this was one of the best movies that was inspired by a true story. This movie is bound for making a presence at the golden globes.

"Argo" is one of the best films I have seen this year. As noted by Joe Morgenstern in "The Wall Street Journal," the audience like the movie so much they clapped at the end and stayed through the end credits. Terrific. Five stars out of five.

Another great Oscar contender! This movie really affected me personally because I remember when it occured and following the news reports on television. The acting was superb and the details uncanny. Ben Affleck really did his research and it showed!!! I also read Ken Follet's book On Wings of Eagles concerning the Iranian revolution and the American hostages during President Carter's time in office. This was a spectacular film and I would recommend it to everyone! Please see it in the theater, if possible. I WILL add this to my collection of DVDs when it comes out! Extremely well made!!!!

I really wanted to see this, because I'd seen a documentary about how these people escaped from Iran. I was never really taught anything about the hostage crisis in school; so, I was intrigued by this bit of history that I didn't know existed.
The movie is interesting without being dry, but it's not over dramatised. I like that it gives exposition quickly and visually. The movie moves quickly, but not so fast that one misses things.
I think teens and adults are the audience for this movie. I've seen more violent content on tv.; so, pg13 would be how I would rate it. They might even learn something like I did.
At first, I wasn't sure about the casting; I couldn't picture some of the actors in the parts. After seeing the first few minutes though, I thought they were great.
I enjoyed this movie and I think it's worth seeing again.
