Argo is a fast-paced work, its last half hour keeps the viewer in constant tension. [Full review in Spanish]
February 28, 2018
That's thanks to the direction, the performances, and the minimalist-yet-engaging emotional economy of the script. Argo is solid cinematic craftsmanship all around.
February 27, 2018
Affleck...takes on what amounts to a historic period thriller with humorous elements and a hero in Mendez, and he does so like he's the second coming of Robert Redford and George Clooney.

February 27, 2018
After all these years, Ben Affleck is still a listless actor. But he's a terrific director, and in Argo, he's done it again.
February 27, 2018
It simmers with real tension as it leapfrogs among characters and locations as much as 7,500 miles apart. Mr. Affleck uses an old-fashioned ringing telephone as effectively as Alfred Hitchcock ever did.

Argo is unquestionably a success, but it must be said that Affleck is not now, and will probably never be, a brilliant director.
February 27, 2018
Argo serves not only as an expertly wrought piece of entertainment but also an act of patriotic tribute.

...confirms [Ben] Affleck's status as a good director. [Full Review in Spanish]

February 26, 2018
The critical situation of life or death is rarefied by a material that links with metacinematographic comedies - the preproduction of that fake film recalls Bowfinger or Ed Wood. [Full review in Spanish]

February 26, 2018
Fiction sometimes surpasses reality, and here, when reality seems fiction, there is no other way to relax and enjoy a finished film product. Hollywood has done it again. [Full review in Spanish]
January 26, 2018
A solid political spy movie, despite being gift-wrapped a little too neatly.

November 21, 2017
This is one of the best American mainstream movies of the year and another taut, terrific film from director Affleck. Truly unmissable.

October 23, 2017
Affleck is growing up as a filmmaker and Argo evinces newly found and assured footing for him.
September 7, 2017
Affleck continues to impress audiences with his keen eye for direction, knowing just when to fall back and allow this top-notch cast the freedom to interpret the events in a way that will most compel viewers.

February 26, 2017
Argo works 100 percent as a straight-up hard-boiled thriller, but its deeper thematic current is about trust.
