Becky and I went to see the new Ben Affleck movie Argo on opening night at the AMC Theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at Argo describes the movie as follows…
“On Nov. 4, 1979, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran, taking 66 American hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge with the Canadian ambassador. Knowing that it’s just a matter of time before the refugees are found and likely executed, the U.S. government calls on extractor Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) to rescue them. Mendez’s plan is to pose as a Hollywood producer scouting locations in Iran and train the refugees to act as his “film” crew…”
The Review: Argo is one of the best movies of the year! This movie was extremely well done and exciting from start of finish. The fact that it’s a true story and based on declassified information from the 1979 hostage crisis made it even more entertaining and interesting to watch. Ben Affleck did a great job starring in this movie and being the Director. The acting is great and the story is truly amazing, which makes it a great flick.
It was also neat to see the differences between life in 1979 compared to today, where we have instant communications, cell phones, the Internet, etc. Simple things like being able to smoke on an airplane that you would never think about being possible today. The clothes and haircuts were a crackup too.
I have talked to many people who have seen this movie and I haven’t met anyone who didn’t like it. It’s definitely going to be one of those movies that people will be talking about for years to come. It’s not that it has a great deal of action, but it’s a bit like a spy thriller as the CIA operative goes to great lengths, to the very brink of failure, to try to rescue the six Americans, who most certainly would be put to death in Iran.
The plan to rescue the trapped Americans is super cool, posing as Hollywood personalities making a movie. It’s really cool and definitely worth seeing this film. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed and we’re both rating it a Don’t Miss It.
