On Nov. 4, 1979, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, Iran, taking 66 American hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge with the Canadian ambassador. Knowing that it's just a matter of time before the refugees are found and likely executed, the U.S. government calls on extractor Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) to rescue them. Mendez's plan is to pose as a Hollywood producer scouting locations in Iran and train the refugees to act as his "film" crew.

Dude, you just spoiled this entire movie in a one line blurb on meta-critic. I'm not the most gung ho CIA enthusiast either, but you do not have to ruin the entire climax because you felt the movie was not an A +. How did you reach the level of professional journalism with reviews like this? Very frustrated, I just went to metacritic to scope out a few reviews quickly and your glaringly negative review stands out like a sore thumb. You ruin the entire movie in your first line. You are a complete Jerk, I'm sorry your parents didn't hug you enough.
