Excerpt: Iranian revolution explodes and six Americans managed to escape from their embassy and hid themselves at the Canadian Embassy. Soon, the Iranian authorities will figure out about this escaped Americans. Now, a CIA agent has to get them out, by faking a film production. *** Wow! REALLY WOW! I did not expect this film to be this brilliant! At first I thought it would be another boring Oscar-nominee movie, but I was completely wrong!
Excerpt: A CIA hostage extraction specialist is called in to retrieve six US Embassy workers hiding out in the Canadian consulate in Iran after the civil uprising of 1979. Argo reminded me very much of The Bank Job, a British heist movie from a few years ago starring Jason Statham. They share a similar mix of humour, politics and history, done in a 70s thriller style format with a plots that seem extremely implausible and yet were based on actual events.
