Sweet Popcorn And Late Nights97 - One of the best films of the year. A tense thriller that manages to walk a fine tightrope between drama and comedy.

CinemaVisitor Erik95 - I don't think there is anything I didn't like about this political thriller. Smart, engaging, funny and with top-notch performances.

Bryan Lienesch94 - Ben Affleck is quickly establishing himself as the next great American storyteller. But for all the rave reviews his acting gets in the film, Bryan Cranston is sorely overlooked. He is phenomenal!

Dan O'Neill80 - Though it’s not as tense or electrifying as Affleck’s last two directorial efforts, Argo still works as a smart, funny, and entertaining thriller that covers a mission that not many people ever knew about, but was also a very important one by how it showed certain sides of the U.S. government working hand-in-hand with Hollywood in a slightly surreal, yet smart way.
