Argo Rated R

Argo R PT120M


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 public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA 'exfiltration' specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

    Watching the movie Argo right now. Sick irony knowing BO gave $400 mil to Iran for hostages. How low we have sunk! Vote #realDonaldTrump

    Good war movie suggestions? (I'm 99% sure I've seen: saving private ryan, Argo, zero dark 30, black hawk down, thin red line, schindlers L)

  • @TheMartinCZ

    I can't wait for the movie, can they get Andy Sandberg to play Lochte - make it similar to Argo? @robinlundberg @MGolicJR57
