Based on real events, the dramatic thriller "Argo" chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis, focusing on the little-known role that the CIA and Hollywood played - information that was not declassified until many years after the event. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Mendez, to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

For 80% of its running time, this is a super-confident joy of a thriller from Affleck. Opening with a crackerjack embassy storming as American diplomats find themselves besieged in 1979 post-revolutionary Tehran, it then goes off on a mad and hilarious tangent as the most improbable plan is cooked up to get 6 US citizens out who are hiding in the Canadian embassy: a fake sci-fi movie production scouting locations in Iran (amazingly this is all true). This part of the film is just great, comfortably in the hands of old pros Arkin and Goodman who are having a ball. A bit of wavering in the middle as the details of the plan are ironed out and then it is all heads down for a balls-to-the-wall closing chapter as the hostages attempt to escape, one of the most sweat-inducing scenes of the year. All in all, though, a great effort from Affleck, even if his own lead performance seems a little distant.
