Movie Review – Argo

Ben Affleck was not only great in ‘The Town’, I was stunned to see how good he was directing it! So his follow up feature was always going to have high standards to live up to.

“A dramatization of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of revolutionary Iran.”

'Argo', though not as slick as 'The Town', was still bloody good! I've heard people say it's too pro America, and though I feel that is partly the case, I still think it does a good job of showing it's their own fault for getting into the situation in the first place. Affleck is back for sure, and I hope he keeps making smart choices like this from now on, as he's both skilled behind and in front of the camera. I also like that they referred to us as 'Kiwis' rather than New Zealanders in the film, as it gave it more of a truthful feeling.
