Argo expertly builds tension and makes you wonder whether the mission will succeed. Enjoyable, Suspenseful and well-acted.
wtf - this got an Oscar?! Actually unexciting story; shallow characters.
If you are like me and never heard about the real story of "Argo", "Argo" is definately one, if not the best film of 2012 (My opinion of course). From story to location and even cast, "Argo" does its best to depict the real events with a little bit of hollywood flare and dramatic heroism. Ben Affleck does a very good job on his role and so is John Goodman,Alan Arkin, and Bryan Cranston as they create a very good and realistic cast. Broadcast material and pictures of the real events give the viewer even more assurance that this film is no joke despite some humorous scenes. From the great 70's feel to the very good Directing by Ben Affleck "Argo" is without a doubt a film I surely recommend.
Affleck continues give us another thriller story. cant wait to see the next film by him.

It's only not getting a 10 due to historical inaccuracies regarding New Zealand, Great Britain and Canada. I don't understand why their heroic efforts couldn't have been written into the screenplay.
