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!

The film was actually quite gripping. Alan Arkin as great as he can be, also John Goodman.
I think the movie would have been even stronger if Ben Affleck had just stuck with directing rather than directing himself in it. He is a pretty wooden actor, much better behind the camera!

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.

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.
