On Nov. 4, 1979, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran, taking 66 American hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge with the Canadian ambassador. Knowing that it's just a matter of time before the refugees are found and likely executed, the U.S. government calls on extractor Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) to rescue them. Mendez's plan is to pose as a Hollywood producer scouting locations in Iran and train the refugees to act as his "film" crew.

Do not brush up on the history of the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979 before going to see “Argo.” It deals with a thrilling CIA effort to rescue six Americans who escaped the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. And it’s best to have a fuzzy memory, mainly because “Argo” expertly builds tension and makes you wonder whether the mission will succeed.

Interesting Movie!

I would like to say that Ben Affleck did a great job in "The Town" and "Argo". Because this film was good and pretty cool seeing old cars.
