Argo

Argo 2012 – Download & Watch Online – Movie Trailer & Reviews.

After hearing about Ben Affleck’s Best Director snub at this year’s Oscars, I decided to download the movie Argo to see for myself. After all it did win Best Picture. Normally I don’t pay much attention to the Academy Awards, but access to movies online has never been easier, and the movie is based on actual historical events which have always been of interest to me. The plot of Argo revolves around the plight of six American Embassy workers caught in the upheaval that was the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 and America’s efforts to rescue them. They were the only Americans to escape the embassy building before it was taken over by radical students in Tehran. The six are taken in by the Canadian Ambassador to Iran in an increasingly precarious situation. In order to rescue the Embassy workers, the CIA looks to their exfiltration specialist Tony Mendez, played by Affleck. He proposes an extraction plan that involves having the six workers and Mendez himself pose as a film crew from Canada in Iran to scout a movie location. In order to pull of such a task, the CIA taps some friends in Hollywood to create a real, but essentially fake sci-fi movie called Argo, complete with press releases and advertising. The fact that the movie is based around actual events makes the fear that is generated all the more palpable. The chaos that reigned in Iran after the Ayatollah regained control can be felt in every scene, and the terror that must have been everyday life for the hostages comes through in living color. The period clothing and music all add to the flavor that was our world in 1979. Argo is a phenomenal piece of filmmaking. It is a movie that will move your emotions and put you in the characters shoes. So grab your microwave popcorn, get online, download Argo and watch movie history unfold.
