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.

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.
