Great Movie
15 March 2003 | by broadfootSee all my reviews

This is a great docudrama about the Iranian Revolution and hostage crisis of 1979. It gives you a better understanding of what led to the deterioration of diplomatic affairs between Iran and the U.S. It also shows us just how much of a bully and despot the last Shah of Iran was. The Iranian characters are portrayed as real people and not as inhuman monsters, as most American action film would portray them.

Highly recommended.
