Believe it or not, Ben Affleck's Argo is the best movie of this year, at least it was to me. Just a matter of personal preference, I love those movies that make me think lots after I watch them on the movie theater. When I go out of the cinema, I still cannot believe the full satisfactions Argo offers to me. Its exciting and engrossing story really impresses me lots.
It seems that every year a crop of Hollywood buzz movies are trying to reflect and refract the real world just around us. In an era full of all kinds of political battles, political films also abound just like the Zero Dark Thirty, Lincon. To be sure, Argo is as a member of those serious political films.
Argo just tells a real story that happens in Iran in 1979. That time, the Iranian Revolution was sweeping the whole country. Angry people invaded the United States Embassy and took embassy staffs as the hostages. In the chaos, six American luckily escaped from the embassy and tried to look for the protections from the Canadian ambassador. They hide in the home of the ambassador for months and dare not step outside for fear of capture.
In order to rescue the trapped Americans, CIA is taking this case. Within the terrible situation that they could not figure out any way to save the trappers, CIA have no choice but adopt the idea providing by Tony Mendez (staring by Ben Affleck): posing as a filmmaker to smuggle the six escaped Americans out of chaotic yet tense Iran. Without doubt, the rescue adventure is quite difficult and full of thrills, close escapes and killer dangerous. If you have already went to the movie house for seeing Argo, I pretty sure you are feeling anxious about the fate of those six Americans until the ending of the movie.
It is widely believe that Ben Affleck performs quite great jobs both on director and actor. Talking about Argo itself, this rapid pace movie keeps viewers on the edges of their seats and always wondering what will happen next. Besides, Argo is struggling to stay close to reality and pay more attention to the details. Personally, this is the brightest spot in Argo. Nowadays, it is rare to see that one movie is making big push to preserve the actuality and give the film a realistic feeling. So to speak, Ben Affleck's genius on director brings up the success of Argo. Of course, Affleck also shows his charm and perfect performance on the big screen.
At this point, if you are seeking for a movie that makes you feel nervous and thrilling, Argo is no doubt the solid choice. Facing such a great film mixing of thrills, comedy and reality, I do believe you won't want to miss out on November. So why not go to movie theatre now? Argo is sure to fit your bill!
