Argo. is a Biography, History and Drama movie based on a true story. A story of six American Ambassadors who managed to escape from the Embassy while it was attacked by some revolutionists of Iran. The story was directed by Ben Affleck who directed one of my favourite movies “The Town”. The story seemed to be promising. And because I didn’t really knew what truly happened to those.

I was pleasantly surprised to find it very enjoyable. I don’t tend to enjoy history movies or documentaries, but the plot really captured my attention. I like that the filmmaker gave some background information regarding the conflict.As the eyes of the entire country are watching news reports of the hostages, the CIA, FBI and White House are scrambling to get the six embassy employees out of the country before they are found, captured and, most likely, killed. Tony Mendez (Affleck) is a CIA “exfiltration” expert, having dealt with a number of dangerous and improbable missions throughout his career.

Movie review: Argo. Eye on NI Movie reviews Movie review: Argo By Belfast Times 8 years ago. For his third film as director, Ben Affleck leaves behind the apparently crime rife streets of Boston for a period piece based loosely on the events on the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, in which the CIA was tasked with rescuing 6 US diplomats who escaped from the US Embassy in Tehran after in was taken.
Movie review of ARGO starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Victor Garber, Scoot McNairy, Tate Donovan, Clea DuVall, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishe. Argo.
ARGO is Hollywood’s attempt to deal with the hostage crisis in Iran under President Jimmy Carter in 1979 and 80. It tells the story of a little remembered, but exciting, incident during that crisis. The movie itself is very well done and riveting. Regrettably, there’s plenty of gratuitous, strong foul language. There’s also an opening and closing voiceover that’s rather politically.

Argo Review. Posted on January 22, 2013 January 22, 2013 by David Zou. If you haven’t seen Argo yet, you are missing one of the most riveting and compelling movies of 2012. Starring and directed by Ben Affleck, the movie delivers an arresting portrayal of six Americans trying to escape Iran in 1979.

Ben Affleck’s third thriller, Argo, is a marvel of cunning, an irresistible blend of cool realism and Hollywood hokum. It opens with a dose of fact, a female narrator’s sober recitation of the.
Argo is the best of the bunch in the Best Picture category but will not go home with the Oscar, which most certainly will be handed to Spielberg, and that is unfortunate. It is a compelling, sometimes terrifying, and extremely maddening film that keeps you guessing and hoping right up until the final moments. It is a great story told by a master storyteller, and Affleck must now be considered.
Although the partially true story succumbs to some rather silly Hollywood tropes towards the end, ARGO does an engaging job of burnishing both sides of the Affleck coin. Full Review Katie Smith.
Argo, the true life story you couldn’t make up, was always ripe for the Hollywood treatment and for the most part Affleck and co. do a good job of bringing it to the screen. Most should be familiar with the plot by now but if not it revolves around a CIA operation to get American diplomats out of Iran during the revolution. Their cover is an audacious and implausible recce scouting for film.
The new Ben Affleck movie, “Argo,” begins in November, 1979, with the storming of the American Embassy in Tehran. A crowd breaks into the compound, taking more than fifty Americans hostage.
