  • Just so we're straight, Ben Affleck doesn't merely direct Argo, he directs the hell out of it, nailing the quickening pace, the wayward humor, the nerve-frying suspense. show more

  • The results are nothing less than sensational. show more

  • Argo's white-knuckle nail-biter of a climax takes liberties with how events played out in real life. But while Affleck and screenwriter Chris Terrio have opted to go Hollywood, it's high-class Hollywood, not the low-rent and exploitative route that the make-believe movie at the heart of this tale would have taken. show more

    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.
