This movie is great for just about any type of movie you are looking for. It is touching, funny, motivating, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I literally was biting my nails during it. What is exceptionally great about this movie is that it tells such a great story from our history and they use clips of real life news reports from 1979/1980. I was in a packed full theater and, with the exception of a handful of people, everyone sat not making a move as the credits started rolling and they showed pictures from the actual events. President Carter then says words about this event and it is extremely moving. This is one film that you do not want to miss and one that is probably best seen in a theater and not waiting for the DVD.

In an era of green screen action movies and overdone "romantic" comedies, Argo is in a class of its own. It is thrilling, intense, fascinating mixed with comedic moments which are subtle and clever. The script, direction, acting, pacing are all masterful. I thought it was the best way to spend 2 hours.

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.
