I will start by saying two good things. First, the acting is great. The performances were amazing. Second, I can appreciate that this story was told without drugs, sex, violence. However, it lacked drama. I understand that the subject matter was important, but I felt like I was watching a really detailed history book. It was difficult to sit through this movie.

Not a good movie. Despite the beautiful scenery, amazing performances, and interesting subject matter, this movie failed. It is NOT a movie about Abraham Lincoln (as other reviewers have stated). The pacing is ok, but I had no interest in the subject matter or how it was told. At times it was good, but too often, I felt like leaving the theater.

"Lincoln" by Yojimbo

Steven Spielberg's biopic of Abraham Lincoln concentrates entirely on his final years as he struggled to push through the 13th amendment to abolish slavery, his greatest achievement and one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history. This makes for an interesting snapshot of history in action as it shows the back room dealings and horse trading that are the stuff of politics even now, very much like a kind of "wild West Wing". Daniel Day Lewis' portrayal of the man as a softly spoken, thoughtful man of the people is extremely watchable, although Tommy Lee Jones puts in a scene stealing performance as a radical political firebrand and James Spader adds more character and some mild comic relief as one of Lincoln's back room "fixers". Spielberg's appr...

Lincoln

Lincoln is a really good film! Not a brilliant film, but it's extremely well done which is certainly not a complaint. Daniel Day-Lewis is terrific, he truly disappears into the role/character and gives a fantastic (Oscar worthy) performance. The screenplay by Tony Kushner is outstanding. Heavy on the politics, but moving and humorous at all the right moments. The film is rounded off by a perfect supporting cast, dotted with many well-known/renowned actors, and none of them disappoint, although Joseph Gordon-Levitt's seemed underused; he was fine, but the character was bland. Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field stand out. Overall, Lincoln is a great biopic about a great American figure. The film captures the conflict of the era, as well as the humanity of good ole' Abe.

Daniel Day-Lewis, just wow!

The President of the United States of America fights for the rights, emancipation, of the slaves.

***

I have seen quite a few movies about Abraham Lincoln, and I would say that this film gave me much more information about the sixteenth President of the U.S, however, I felt like it was not all about Lincoln as I expected before watching the movie. I anticipated for something that is really about him, Lincoln and Lincoln alone. Though, of course, I have no reason to hate the story. This slavery and emancipation story was a great material to start with. Also, Spielberg directing, as expected, was great with a kind of performances given to us by Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and one of my favorites Joseph Gordon Levitt. It was with a powerful cast, a great director, go...
