Ben Affleck's best film to date. Very intelligent and well-crafted, solid performances, nicely paced and quite riveting. Ben Affleck delivered on screen and off in his role as Tony Mendez and in the director's chair. This is a movie that definitely lives up to the hype.

Very nicely done thriller. Well constructed and directed. It strays away a bit from the original story but it's nerve-wracking and keeps you on the edge of your seat almost all the time until the end.

This is a MUST SEE movie. Well done with kudos to Ben Aflick who both directed and acted in this suspense filled drama about the 1979 US embassy hostage crisis in Iran. It is a winner. At the end of the move everyone in my theater was clapping with some on their feet. How often does that happen???

This is the second time I've gone to see Argo and I LOVED it. Surely right up there with Lincoln for Best Picture Of The Year! It may be my all-time favorite movie.

Ben Affleck has made a movie that is tense and very suspenseful, even knowing the ultimate outcome. The production qualities are terrific. The audience clapped at the end and many didn't rush out soon as the credits came up. How he wasn't nominated by AMPAS for the best director Oscar is beyond me.
