Argo is pretty much one of the best movies I've seen in recent times, don't get me wrong, there's a lot of things wrong with it. For one, it's very much got the Hollywood tint sprinkled over it. However, it's a brilliant experience. I was one of those people who actually knew how talented Ben Affleck was, ever since Good Will Hunting, you could tell he had the talent.
Argo is a testament to that. Not only in the acting world but as a director. There's no doubt that Ben Affleck will one day win another Academy Award. Argo is one of those movies that has America paint other countries incredibly negatively, almost savage like. If you can look beyond that you'll see a pretty amazing movie with an epic story. Argo totally blew me away and if you give it a chance it will with you too.
