  • Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis-the truth of which was unknown by the ...

  • Argo is partly based on a Wired magazine article called The Great Escape, and that film is a potent influence. Audiences will be waiting for an equivalent of that awful moment when the cunning ...

  • The extraction of the six Americans remained top secret for 18 years. They all returned safely to America. "Argo," needless to say, was never filmed. Ben Affleck not only stars in but also directs, and "Argo," the real movie about the fake movie, is both spellbinding and surprisingly funny.

  • Argo is a triumph. It has tension, sincerity, mystery, artistic responsibility, entertainment value, technical expertise, a narrative arc and a thrilling respect for the tradition of how to tell a story with minimum frills and maximum impact.

  • Argo is Ben Affleck's third theatrical feature as a director and after the critical and commercial success of 2010's The Town, moving into the realm of perioid action-drama may seem odd, but it's ...

  • Argo needs an actor who reverberates without saying a single word. A secondary storyline about Mendez' family life is a sweet detour, but a distraction, too. Nonetheless, Argo is a thriller that nearly stands up to the best of them.

  • Argo Overview. Argo is a free-to-play “hardcore tactical first-person shooter” from Arma 3 developer and publisher Bohemia Interactive. Billed as a total conversion of Arma 3, the game allows players to take on the role of mercenaries contracted by one of two rival factions in an updated version of the Arma Malden island map

  • The new Argo LX is unlike anything we have tested. Its 25mph top speed wasn't overwhelming, but it's easy to drive and will literally take you anywhere you want to go. It was so cool riding down a step decent, dropping into a lake and cruising around in the water. You can take multiple passengers, with cargo, and you can even listen to your favorite tunes!

  • Argo was acclaimed by critics, praising Ben Affleck's direction, the cast (especially Arkin and Goodman), the script and the editing. Rotten Tomatoes gives the film an approval rating of 96%, based on 333 reviews, with an average rating of 8.4/10.
