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.

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.

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!

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.

Although I lived through the Iran crisis and remember vividly the release of the hostages on January 20, 1981, I had no idea of what happened with the six Americans who were protected by the Canadian ambassador. This film is genius in portraying the true events. Ben Affleck and George Clooney have created an outstanding documentary of a previously unknown event in American history.
