An Eye Opener
28 July 2003 | by (de, usa) – See all my reviews

This film helped me understand what went on during this crisis. I recommend it to anyone wanting to gain insight into the event as well as reading the books that have been written about this ordeal. I thought the actors portrayed the actual hostages with a strong desire to get it right. Excellent job by Colin Firth and company!
