Excellent nail biter deserves to be seen.By sean1970 (42 reviews) , 09 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Argo is a surprisingly enjoyable movie and is one of the better movies of the year.
Set in 1979 Argo sees the rescue operation of 6 Americans after militants storm the U. S. Embassy in Tahran taking 52 hostages but midst of the chaos six Americans manage to escape and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. So the CIA have to come up with a plan to rescue the 6 before they are found and killed. A CIA specialist played by Ben Affleck comes up with a plan that is so incredible it has to be seen to be believed.
Unbelievably based on a true story Argo is a tense, exciting, often amusing and thoroughly enjoyable thriller.
Excellently directed by Affleck and some brilliant performances makes this movie one of the surprises of the year. Recommended.

It's a film, and a good one. It's not a Degree.By ExeterHawk (4 reviews) , 15 Nov 2013Good stuff. Kept me interested from start to finish. Some reviews talk about the historical accuracy. I can't and won't comment on that. This is a film, not a degree course. I enjoyed it as a film. A lot.
Argo - Oscar winningBy Kela23 (636 reviews) , 13 Nov 2013Ben Affleck is a talented little bunny - story was well done, acting was first rate and all credit to Ben he thoroughly deserved his Oscar.
How could they fall for thisBy a customer , 13 Nov 2013Brilliant film; suspense galore, and an amazing outcome from a 'they'll never fall for this one' plot. Well worth watching.
good filmBy a customer , 11 Nov 2013This film hooked me from start to finish; nail biting stuff. Stomach churning at times, but would not hesitate to recommend.
Gripping stuffBy TinyCuddles (3 reviews) , 11 Nov 2013Thoroughly enjoyable nail-biter. Great acting all round and worth watching. An interesting look at a political incident I new little about.
