It was a good movie, but...Honestly I thought Zero Dark Thirty was better. What I liked about argo was Afflecks expertise and ease as a director and that his acting didn't bring the whole film down, although didn't have much range either. I also found the side story of his family life a wasted plot point. And I didn't like how two-dimentional his characters were and how flashy some of the scenes were. I think it would have been better if he simplified certain parts of the movie.
