What outstanding movie!!!

A bit disappointed, considering I thought the movie was about the game-changing car. Didn't know it was about the post-Clinton years...

A very good film but a very long film .The acting is superb though.Lewis is amazing and Tommy Lee Jones is even better in my view.It may be his best acting ever and the man is always great..

This Lincoln, stunningly portrayed by Spielberg and Day-Lewis, is real and relatable and so, so cool. Full Review

Go see this movie. Take your children, even though they may occasionally be confused or fidgety. Boredom and confusion are also part of democracy, after all. Lincoln is a rough and noble democratic masterpiece - an omen, perhaps, that movies for the people shall not perish from the earth. Full Review

Instead of a grand tableau vivant that lays out the great man and his great deeds like so many too-perfect pieces of waxed fruit, Spielberg brings the leader and viewers down to ground level. Full Review

Through this very specific look at a critical time in Lincoln's presidency, Kushner, Spielberg and Day-Lewis work together to present an honest look at America's most revered statesman. Kushner finds an artful way to weave in the texts of the Gettysburg Address and the 13th Amendment, as well as a creative way to present Lincoln's assassination. Full Review

Lincoln is too sharply focused to deserve the pejorative "biopic" label. It's splendid enough to make me wish Spielberg would make a "prequel" to this instead of another Indiana Jones picture. Full Review
