Best Movie out in a long time!!! Ben Affleck nailed this. Casting was incredible, John Goodman was fabulous. The storyline brings you right back to the hostage crises and if you weren't born yet, doesn't matter because the movie delivers all the elements of a blockbuster. Humor, suspense, drama. ARGO (gfy) has it all!

I remember the event as if it were yesterday. Since the real facts were disclosed in 1997, I really only thought it was the Canadians acting on their own, saved the day. Always like Ben but now he has elevated himself to top of the line. Recomend Argo highly.

I really enjoyed this movie. Even though you know the ending, they still did a great job of keeping me on the edge of my seat.

Suspenseful, dramatic, and even funny!

Despite knowing the outcome of the real life story, this movie still had me on the edge of my seat. The pacing was perfect, and it managed to balance the seriousness of the political situation with well-placed humor and human moments. Rather than overloading the movie with A-list celebs, they made the smart decision to use more character actors who told the story without overshadowing it. Seeing as this is only the third film Ben Affleck has directed, there should be many Oscars coming his way in the future.

If you like edge of your seat suspense, some adult humor, and a fact based story ... this is a must see movie! Great shooting; makes you feel like your right there. Sticks to the historical storyline very well. There was undoubtedly a little Hollywood rewrite for added suspense, but very little. Very believable acting! Loved it! Would see it again loved it!
