The focal point of the story was about Tony Mendez, an individual who developed a daring, if not outlandish, plan to rescue the Americans.


As the movie quoted, “it’s the best bad idea that we have.” And it worked.


To say that the Canadians were given no credit or very little in the film is not a fair statement. When I came out of the theatre after viewing the movie, I felt proud to be a Canadian.
