After American hostages are taken captive in Iran, American CIA operative Tony Mendez, along with some Hollywood big shots, comes up with a plan to help get the 7 Americans who managed to escape captivity.
The movie has a great beginning and a nail-biter finish. While the outcome is public knowledge, it’s still exciting to see this movie. Ben Affleck did an amazing job at directing, he truly deserved a Best Director win, which sadly did not happen. The acting in this is top-notch and I see why this won Best Picture. A definite must-see.
The middle is a bit boring, but many will still be interested as the movie does continue to push forward. The movie is not 100% accurate, which might be really sad if you’re Canadian. I should probably explain why, but I’m tired.
