Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "Ben Affleck returns both behind and in front of the lens for his third feature film Argo. This time he leaves his comfort zone of Boston for a historical drama that takes place in Iran. Argo has been received by most as a well-made drama that makes good use of its assembled talent, but does the story hold up as well as say Gone Baby Gone or The Town? Not a chance. Argo is a decent drama at best, relying too much on its most under-used players to carry the film."
