Default Argo (2012)

"Argo".....The true story of six Americans that have found shelter with the Canadian ambassador in Iran when the revolution reaches a boiling point. The CIA works alongside some heavy hitters in Hollywood to create a fake film production to concoct a risky plan to try and get them out of the country. For a movie that focuses on a situation that was so dire and heavy, this film comes off a bit lighter than expected. I think a bit of that lightness was unnecessary and was shown a bit too much with actors Goodman and Arkin. Other than that, Ben Affleck has crafted an engaging film. Strong acting is showcased by Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, and Clea Duvall...as well as John Goodman and Alan Arkin at times. The dynamic between Affleck and Cranston is perfect, creating a duo that both entertain as well as keep this story on track. Cinematography, production design, music score, and directing are all strong. The gritty look to this film really helps to capture the vibe and tone of the film while combined with the attention to detail, helps take you into that time period. An awesome and intriguing dramatic thriller!!

9/10

Just watched this again.

9/10

Definitely not my favorite of the year, but a solid and entertaining film with great performances and a super intense final hour. Doesn't really strive to do anything extraordinary outside of telling a great story.
