The film of this historic event is surprisingly gripping despite your knowing the outcome of the actual events before you see it. Good performances by everyone. Excellent attention to detail. Very moving.

Absolutely great movie. Ben Affleck is definitely a man of movie making talent. How he managed to make this movie so intense and suspenseful when everyone already knew what the outcome would be is masterful. This movie deserves the highest honors this year.

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.

My family and I lived in Teheran for 2 years, coming home just about 4 months before the revolution. I couldn't imagine how the film could recreate the city (and the time) so well. I drove through those gates (to the embassy) at least once a week, I avoided those staring eyes whenever I summoned the courage to go to the bazaar, I wondered if my Iranian bahji (maid) could be trusted with my possessions and my children, I said a thank-you prayer as our plane (a Pan-Am for us) lifted out of Meharbad Airport. And I sat transfixed in our new quarters in Indianapolis watching the scenes I had just left turn to madness. The film caught not just the appearance of Teheran, but the atmosphere, perfectly. Ben Affleck deserves an Oscar for his direction at the very least.

Very well done, a lot of suspense even though you know how it turns out. Unexpected humor! I do not do reviews but would definitely recommend this one
