Movie Review: Argo

argo Gone Baby Gone and The Town proved Ben Affleck is an excellent director. Argo (A+) proves he’s a masterful one with a politically-minded action potboiler set during the Iran Hostage Crisis. It’s authentic in all the details of its declassified true story, riveting and even sometimes funny as an intelligence officer mounts a very improbable mission using a touch of Hollywood magic.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
