  Oscar well deserved!

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

Ben Affleck proves again he is a force to be reckoned with behind the camera after cutting his teeth on Gone Baby Gone, then blew us away with the excellent The Town, now getting the well deserved oscar for Argo. We all know it's based on a true story, but what I didn't know was how smart, darkly funny and nerve shredding the movie is. A story that you would think would have been made up in Hollywood that actually sprang from Hollywood. The film is a hugely enjoyable thriller and if you think it's going to be stuffy, then think again. One of the best films of 2012!

  Worth A Watch

| | See all 2xtreme's reviews (14)

After hearing so much hype about this film, I eventually decided to see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately it was a bit of a let down.

As another reviewer stated, Affleck's attention to detail with the film was excellent and he should definitely stick to directing more. But his acting is still as wooden as an ark which, for me, let the film down. No wonder he wasn't nominated for an Oscar!

It took some time to get into, but as the film went on, I became more intrigued with the plot. But despite the incredibly tense ending, I was still let disappointed.

It's far from the masterpiece that it's made out to be and I definitely wouldn't watch it again.

My advice: It's worth a watch but rent it first!

  Forgo the Oscar snub Ben!

This is a superb piece of film making Affleck is actually in my view the worst thing in the film but he is actually really good in the movie shows how good the film is. His eye to detail and the respect he has for the source material knowing when to Hollywood it to when keeping with the source. The academy really have messed up this time not nominating him. Looking forward to his next project already.

Good, but definitely not 5*.
It's engrossing, but something's missing. Maybe it doesn't make you care enough. A pretty linear plot which doesn't offer much in the way of surprises, it very much feels like a 'true story' that's been copy and pasted into the standard Hollywood format.
