a masterpiece. Both the truth upon which it's based as well as the film in all aspects are incredible. The plan worked because people embraced the impossible with passion and dedication [and thankfully our technology was not then what it is today]. Good to see Affleck reconnect with the genius he showed with "Good Will Hunting". A spot on cast!

This movie should be show in film school as a lesson in how to take a compelling true story and make it a nail biter even though history tells us how the story really ends. Wow!

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!

Both my husband and I liked this movie. If you lived through the Iranian crisis, this movie is absolutely fascinating. It is definitely a movie for adults, not kids, because of all the cursing.

Learned a lot

I was pretty young during the Iran Hostage Crisis, and never even knew about these six Americans. Great story, great script,and had you on the edge of you seat the whole film. Be sure to watch all the credits at the end so you can see what a great job they did making the actors look exactly like the real people involved - from the hostages to the LA film team.
