Great movie. I was on the edge of my seat for the whole second half. It was made so well I felt like I was watching actual, real documentary footage rather than a movie.

This was a great movie and I enjoyed every single minute. If I could give it more stars I would. I will no doubt be seeing this movie again in the future.

It's important to for Americans to know that Affleck grossly distorted the events depicted in this film. Jimmy Carter said yesterday that the rescue was \"90% Canadian\" and the CIA played a very minor role. The hollywood part, the runway scene, the id'ing the Americans? Bogus. It's a lie.
