Argo tells the story of the desclassified operation to free 6 American's from Iran during the Iranian Hostage Crisis of 1979.
The idea to use the cover of filming a fake movie to free the Americans was soon set into motion.
This movie doesn't rely on massive explosions, or cool cadgets to establish itself as a spy thriller. It doesn't try to make a true story according to Hollywood, but rather the facts.
Rating: 9 out of 10
You don't have to run out and see this movie, but you should see it nonetheless.
