Two Line Reviews - #449

Movie: Argo (2012)

Plot: American spies under cover in Iran end up getting sheltered by their Canadian counterparts when a revolution propels Iranians to break into the embassy. A U.S. agent employs a peculiar plan and tries to get them out of Iran!

What Works?
  • You are made to feel the film is real - A good thing for any film based on a book written on a true incident. The scenes featuring the reasons for the outbreak and the History of Iran offer you that. Gutsy presentation by Ben Affleck & Co.
  • The strange idea that Ben Affleck sets up and works with provide entertainment all the way - Especially the scenes involving the Hollywood duo & Ben.
  • The last 45 minutes of the film provides edge-of-the-seat thrill and you end up getting involved and there lies its success.
  • Ben Affleck, the actor understands the importance of underplaying his part (which he so often does quite well) and that makes the scene at the Canadian Embassy Home where he tries to convince the guarded ones work big time.
A pulsating thriller!
