Ben Affleck is a terrible actor, and he should have been shot after DareDevil. But he wasn't. As a result, we got Argo. It attempts to tell the true story of the rescuing of people who were trapped in Iran (not the hostages, mind you).

So, as the movie progresses, the crutch that it relies on is the idea that things have to happen at JUST the right time. At no point is it suspenseful, as the viewer knows pretty well that they have to get to the next part. After all, they built up the next part as bigger and more scary than the one we are watching.

The upshot is that it wasn't terrible, but it ain't good. It's the kind of movie I would expect Ben to be in, and I can't recommend it.
