About the Movie

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 Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, the Canadian and American governments ask the CIA to intervene. The CIA turns to their top "exfiltration" specialist, Tony Mendez, to come up with a plan to get the six Americans safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.

Customer Reviews

So good, it really kept me on the edge of my seat!!

This is one of those films that is not overhyped nor undeserving of the accolades that it has been showered with since late last year. This truly is a masterpiece. I learned so much from this wonderful "escape" story that I read up more. And while it downplayed the help rendered by the Canadians, the heroism of a few good men did, indeed, save the day. I cannot stress enough how wonderfully pace this movie is. Never a dull moment. I won't tell you how it ended but the point is not in the ending but the entire journey. And what a roller coaster ride we were in with this magnificent, funny and candid look at what really happened in Iran. Bravo! Mr Affleck, you will get your Oscar on of these days for director. I have no doubt about it. XOXO
