    The biggest issue with this documentary is that we don't get any of the real people who stood against these kids to speak. Which is perhaps telling in itself, but creates a hole in that regard.

    I wouldn't be honest if I didn't say that I think the kids may have very well been in the park doing bad things.

    Linda Freaking Hamilton Rocks in here. <---Captain obvious statement.…

    Really intense film. This is a lesson in how to ramp up the tension that everyone should study.

    Now I have to see more of Ben Afflecks films.

    Besides taking abit to set everything up I can't really find any flaws in this movie. The airport scene was my favorite, especially when the guy is explaining to the soldier what the Argo movie will be about.

    I had been worried about a terrible depiction of the Iranian people in here…
