This sure-fire Oscar contender opens in the US this weekend with a very enthusiastic 94% fresh rating at rottentomatoes.com. Reviews are saying that it is a riveting, exciting and at times humourous suspense thriller from start to finish. Can't wait for this!

Critics' Consensus:
As a director, Ben Affleck is on a roll. With two Certified Fresh films (Gone Baby Gone and The Town) under his belt, critics say Affleck scores again with Argo, a tense, darkly comic thriller with terrific characters and an eye for period detail. In the midst of the Iranian Revolution of 1979, a group of militants take hostages at the U.S. embassy in Tehran. When six Americans escape and hole up elsewhere, CIA agent Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) comes up with a scheme to rescue them: pretend they're filmmakers working on an epic sci-fi movie. The pundits say the Certified Fresh Argo is a terrific entertainment -- it's suspenseful, deftly scripted, sharply acted, and politically reflective.
