ARGO! A Review.
What does Argo stand for? Not just a movie title, it’s an action…it means go and see it! Greg and I went to the movies a few days ago, and decided to watch this film. I wasn’t really looking forward to it, I would have rather went and seen a different movie, but we compromised on what we both wanted and settled on Argo.
The first seen is of the people in the embassy and it’s when they are bombarded with the local people trying to get in to take captives. You literally feel scared yourself. I felt so scared for those people because they had nowhere to go and they had a job to do.
The sounds and the film mixed with real footage of the raid makes it even more real feeling.
I loved the creative angle that went behind them trying to go and get the hostages back.
The acting was wonderful and the actors, all but one, really looked like the real people who went through this predicament.
At the end, you find out, that countries have looked to Argo as a way to work together when they need to do so. It makes you wonder that if more people focused on humans as humans and didn’t worry about what country or background they are from, how much we could accomplish in this world for the better.
At the end of the film you feel excited, empowered, and if you are like us, we talked about it all the way home.
I’m not going to give you anymore feedback on the film because I want you to go out and watch it, I want you to feel the pain, fear, anxiety, joyfulness, sadness, and anger in the film when you watch it. It feels like a rollercoaster of emotions when you watch it, but I think that’s what really brings the story to life. Considering it’s also based off factual events, it’s even more of a reason to go and see it.
Remember anyone can be a hero!
I give this film an A-!
