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.

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 most authentic movie I have ever seen. The director Ben Affleck made you feel like you were in the 1970's. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat. I lived in Tehran in the 70's and this movie brought back all of the memories. We had groups all over the US that lived in Tehran go to see the movie this weekend.

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.
