Film #21 of 2013
A dramatization of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of revolutionary Iran.
Shows the importance of film! Was it an amazing film, I didn’t think so. I thought a lot of the actors playing the fugitives weren’t very believable, there was no reason to feel sympathetic for the main characters and I thought the whole thing felt like a made for tv movie. Like Zero Dark Thirty it is an interesting story and has the potential to be something amazing and dramatic but I didn’t think they were particularly good films. I know why this movie is nominated, because it tells the tale of how an imaginary movie and Hollywood could create a lie to mask an important rescue. Ironic as well. There are a few history buffs who claim they got alot of the :true story” incorrect.
