  • Argo

    During the Iranian hostage crisis, six Americans escaped the embassy compound just as it was overrun. The Canadian Ambassador took them in, hiding them from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Back home, CIA agent Tony Mendez concocts a wild plan to get them out of Iran: pose as a Canadian film crew scouting locations to shoot a sci–fi movie. Based on a true story, Argo is rated R, primarily for language.

    ClearPlay In Action!

    Argo contains around sixty instances of language, about half of which are the F word. This causes a few gaps in some conversations, but the gist is still there. There are a handful of disturbing images (such as bodies hanging from cranes) that are cut, but they won’t be missed. While a bit intense for young viewers, older teens and up might benefit from this look a history.

    Can I Escape Aboard the Argo?…

    While an embellished version of the actual events that took place, Argo is a tense, enjoyable film that is still relevant in today’s political climate. I really enjoyed the glimpse into the inner workings of the CIA in hatching a plot this clever and complex to rescue six people. Thankfully, ClearPlay removes the rough language and none of the tension is lost. Recommended for anyone who likes historical drama or a good spy film.

    Rated R for language and some violent images; 120 min; Directed by Ben Affleck
