This movie kept my heart rate up and the suspense going even though I knew the 6 people would make it home. Really well done except that Ben Affleck kept the same facial expression throughout the whole movie. I think he is a better director than an actor. Since the movie had been out for a couple months, I was surprised that the theater was packed for the Saturday matinee. I remember the yellow ribbons for the hostages in 1980 and noticed that most of the people in the audience were my age or older. As a 12 year old in 1980, I lived through the media coverage of the event but didn't ever hear the back story about these 6 people.
