I was in my 20's when the hostage crisis was going on. I had been to Tehran 1 year ealier as a flight attendat for PanAm and remember the airport well. This was a great movie and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. One of the best movies I have seen and Ben Affleck is easy on the eyes.

Outstanding Flick, riveting. Every American Citizens needs to see this show just like Saving Pvt Ryan or Miracle, for different reasons, but must see.
It was all I could do at the end of the movie NOT(so I will do it here) to stand up and should "Ambassador Stevens & 3 other Americans are dead" & this administration and our government have done nothing to this date 10.22.2012 about this. They knew about this in real time. No drone attack. No naval landing. The sacrifice of 4 American lives to perpetuate a myth about the Middle East. Shameless!
Sadly, at the end of the movie we have a clip from Carter saying that eventually all the hostages got back and we did it peacefully. What was not said is that the hostages were released because Republican Ronald Reagan was elected President and would not put up with a hostage crisis continuing.
May history repeat itself.

Very powerful film-even thuogh you know what will happen the suspense is overwhelming.
acting and screen writing is superb. Riveting to the point where you do not want to get up after the end of the film. A must see film for all.

Normally I'm not a fan of "based on a true story", but Argo is extremely compelling and pacing is kept taut and ever escalating until the end. The exposition at the beginning is necessary for a lot of viewers and is really the only real slow spot. Real footage is expertly interlaced with dramatized in this very faithful account. Would recommend!

This movie was AWESOME! It was entertaining and engaging from beginning to end! I was on the edge of my seat completely waiting to see the outcome. If you want to see a good movie, this is one!
