Suspenseful even though you know how it turns out. To us, it didn't appear to over-emphasize the value of torture and it sure didn't glorify the practice.

A serious even-handed telling of one of the most momentous events since WWII. Thankfully lacking in Hollywood caricatures. It's so gratifying to learn about the brilliant, dedicated and determined intelligence officers out there working the fence lines for us. Argo is enjoyable but not nearly this good. This is the real thing and told well.

I enjoyed this movie. I thought it was made well and told the story well. Even though it's based on real events and you might know what's going to happen, I still found it very suspenseful. I could see why Jessica Chastain has won best actress awards so far. You'll get your money's worth on this movie.

A bit long for my taste and the story line was not s compelling as advertised. Great insights on CIA and tenacity of the field agent that found him. Ending was disappointing.
