'Argo' Review By TheFury
3 for 3, Oscar For Best Director
Ben Affleck, playing CIA agent Tony Mendez, who must make a fake movie to rescue six people from Iran. Political thrillers typically aren't thrilling. It's surrounded by history lessons and preachy speeches about patriotism. Argo really breaks the barrier for political thrillers, while still giving you the most accurate reenactment of a true event. Umm... except for Ben Affleck. At the end credits, they show the real six victims and everyone who was involved and match them to the actors, which is spot on. Then when they show Tony Mendez, Affleck looks nothing like the guy.
Well-rounded cast with well-rounded performances makes this film even better. Check it out.
