"an oscar thriller. intense."

The movie was really breath taking and had some stressful moments. I expected quite too much of this movie (some critics considered this movie as fabulous). Actually, the movie was great, but had some lacks. That's why it shouldn't win the oscars for the best picture ...

An interesting movie that did not deserve Best Picture (Django? Lincoln?) but won it through another bout of Hollywood's self-fellating ego.

Besides having a great cast, the strong editing in Argo provided for a good looking and tense, thrilling film.

In personal memory, few 3rd acts have come even close to matching the edge of your seat intensity that Argo provides. Nevertheless, credit should not be taken from the rest of this finely tuned thriller. Excellent performances and surprisingly effective humor give this fact based story a high powered motor.

Pro: semi interesting, but fell flat
Con: too much hype, wasn't anythimg special. Zero Dark Thirty and 13 Hours were way better.

Tense historical drama that marks Ben Affleck's arrival to the director's club.

The winner of Best Picture by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, 'Argo' is a smart, funny drama that brings to life a real-life event. This is a must see, if not for the ensemble cast, but for the slow build of tension. Despite some poetic license taken by Director and star Ben Affleck, 'Argo' is indeed one of those rare must-see films of the 21st century. Final Score: 9.2

A political thriller about the Iranian hostage situation in the early 80s. This tells the untold story of the American hero behind the scenes CIA guy who saved their asses and thwarted a possible war situation. Its incredible that this idea was even thought of or approved and that it actually was pulled off. I've heard of the Iranian American embassy hostage situation taking forever (almost 2 years), but didn't ever hear about these particular hostages who escaped. These poor people are caught in a horrible situation just because of their nationality. The tension was so thick in this film you could cut it with a knife. For that reason, along with the ingenuity and meticulousness of the plot to escape- you can't help but cheer them on. One of my fav Affleck films and while it had some of his "cool guy" that tries too hard in the script, it didn't get too heavy handed. Also, unlike a lot of political films this movie was very easy to follow and wasn't bogged down with govt. jargon.
