Suspenseful & harrowing for sure, but falls too much into the typical-Hollywood tropes which make it less effective.
I hate Ben but this movie objectively is dope.
The energy in the film is kinetic, with the story moving at a fast pace. The characters and their struggles give the movie so much weight.
Quite liked the movie but feel it suffers too much from "Hollywood-ing" real events.
Excellent historical thriller about a now declassified operation, great acting, fascinating story. CGI is a bit iffy at parts, overall great
I absolutely loved this movie. Not much more to say. Wasn’t in love with Affleck’s acting but his direction was incredible.
Entertaining and informative (if you accept that inevitably there will be inaccuracies)!
Some tense moments will keep you on the edge of your seat.
It’s a really good movie and engaging and you are sitting on needles and you’ll feel the nerve’s.
Great movie. Ben Affleck does a great job.
