I really wanted to see this, because I'd seen a documentary about how these people escaped from Iran. I was never really taught anything about the hostage crisis in school; so, I was intrigued by this bit of history that I didn't know existed.
The movie is interesting without being dry, but it's not over dramatised. I like that it gives exposition quickly and visually. The movie moves quickly, but not so fast that one misses things.
I think teens and adults are the audience for this movie. I've seen more violent content on tv.; so, pg13 would be how I would rate it. They might even learn something like I did.
At first, I wasn't sure about the casting; I couldn't picture some of the actors in the parts. After seeing the first few minutes though, I thought they were great.
I enjoyed this movie and I think it's worth seeing again.
