Aside from the first ten minutes and the last twelve, of a 120 minute film... This has got to be the worst movie I've ever attempted to sit through. I did however enjoy John Goodman, and his role in an otherwise slow, boring, mundane, and lengthy movie about a crisis that was very real, and one I lived through in the latter 70's and early eighties. The movie was informative about actions the CIA took to pull these Americans out of a volatile situation, and bring them home safe and sound... but, as a whole, the movie was as bad as it gets. I would go so far as to akin it to a visit to the dentist, your proctologist, all while experiencing the worst migraine headache you've ever had in your life, and all in one day!
