Argo

Bullseyes:  ④ (out of 5)
I don’t like Ben Affleck. He’s got that twatty Tom Cruise thing going on – he takes himself too seriously and you’re always aware that you’re watching the actor, not the character. In Argo Affleck manages to take his shirt off and flash his rock hard abs for absolutely no relevant reason. Why does he have to do that...?

But this is a very good movie. It’s informative, well-paced and the tension builds nicely. There’s great comedy in the Hollywood scenes and the ending isn’t overdone. My only gripe is the ridiculous jeeps chasing the plane scene – was this really necessary? We know it never happened. It took me out of the movie and had me playing back the scenes with the Arabs in Team America, “Durka durka durka!”
