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

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...

Oscar Bait

I agree with Alex in saying, this film is not about Lincoln, but, then again, it is. It's not a biographical piece. It doesn't start with his time in Illinois growing up and the Lincoln-Douglas debates, then his eventual election and untimely death. It's about politics. Specifically the politics of getting an amendment passed. Lincoln knew that the Emancipation Proclamation was only good during the Civil War. Once the war ended, the courts would overturn it. He needed the Amendment passes, and this film is the story of how that happened.

Other parts of the film are great, as stated in almost every review, Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, etc. are all great. The Cinematography by Janusz Kaminski is excellent as it is in almost every film that he and Spielberg work...
