Ben Affleck is a master director,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Argo (Blu-ray)  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
the last thirty minutes are astounding ones and could be related to the best hitchcock scenes of suspense.
there's always a stroke of luck despite the human intelligence ; I can't tell you more because you wouldnt watch this movie which is perfectly casted from the beginning too the end.

The last 30 minutes never happened in the events on which this film is based. Furthermore, they contain a glaring plot hole of which Hitchcock would never have been guilty: once the Iranian revolutionary guards realise that the "Canadians" are actually American diplomats escaping, all they had to do was pick up an airport phone and tell the control tower to stop the plane instead of ludicrously shooting doors open and chasing the plane down the runway. There was even the old cliche of the engine of the runway coach stalling. And what about the backslapping etc in CIA HQ - didn't that resemble every "mission successful Hollywood film you've ever seen?

I do agree with you ; it's happy ending hollywood film but when referring to Hitchcock it was purely about the effect on the audience and the notion of suspense.like the Torn curtain, North by Northwest and many more
Of course Ben Affleck can't compete with Hitch who never made movies based on true stories.
