I don’t make it to the theaters very often. But when I do, it’s usually because the movie promises to be awesome. Argo was one such example. I watched this on Sunday night with some friends. Produced and directed by Ben Affleck, it was as good as I’d hoped it would be. I’d been excited about it ever since I saw the trailer a few months ago and was glad to finally go and see it. The suspense was taut, the plot moved at a brisk pace, the danger and fear palpable, the stakes hike. Excellent film.
What it’s about:
During the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979, the CIA plots to rescue six Americans under the cover of a fake science-fiction film
Who’s in it:
Ben Affleck, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, and others.
This film is rated R. Some violence (though I’ve seen worse). Lots of suspense (of the nail-biting variety).
