I had visited Iran in 1977 and had married an Iranian soon after that. I certainly went through the taking of hostages ordeal...but, here in the USA, thank goodness. This movie brought back memories of SAVAK and the Shah of Iran. I remember being told not to say anything BAD nor anything GOOD about the Shah...or I might disappear. This was during GOOD TIMES, when the Shah was there. I totally felt the terror and tenseness that these people felt. It was a very uncomfortable feeling to be there, even in GOOD TIMES.
Ben Aflack did a MAGNIFICENT job both acting and directing this movie. I don't know why he was not nominated for his Direction in this movie. All actors did a FABULOUS acting job. I really enjoyed the movie. It kept me at the edge of my seat at the end of the movie...and kept my interest throughout.

This film is well written and directed. I was 33 at the time of this event, so I recall it vividly. The acting is very good and the intensity of the movie holds steady throughout. It has some funny lines as well as several serious moments. I did think that the usage of the F word was extreme. I will not address the political aspects of this movie. This is not the place for that. I will say that I thought the comments of President Carter at the end of the film should have been deleted. I still recommend the film as it is a well done film.

Was one of the best true story movies I've seen in a long time. Ben Affleck was amazing, as were John Goodman, Alan Arkin and all the others. Great movie and would highly recommend!

Terrific picture. Edge of your seat excitement even though you know how it ends before you even buy your ticket. Not for kids because of language and some graphic I images.

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.
