Movie Reviews

  • told with intelligence, great period detail and a surprising amount of nutty humor for a serious look at the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-81
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • this is a movie with a lot of parts, and Affleck fits them all together masterfully. "Argo" is a gem
    5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the mission reads like far-fetched spy fiction rather than actual political history
    4 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the film may exaggerate certain incidents and invent suspenseful moments, but it never crosses into implausible territory, and it draws you closer as it unfolds

  • one of the best films of 2012 and a sure-fire contender on Oscar night
    4 of 4 by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • never less than wildly entertaining, but a major part of its power is that it so ominously captures the kickoff to the world we're in now
    Review rate : A by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]

    Review rate : A by Laremy Legel [ ]
  • everything culminates in the film's final third
    3.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]

    3.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • Affleck's unexpectedly comedic third feature has the vital elements to delight adult auds, judging by the enthusiastic response
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
