The use of historical photos as the background of the entire film, adds a heightened sense of history that really stirs something in your soul...

Variety
The script, while largely historically accurate, is undermined by stilted dialogue, and the picture is laced with ill-fitting parts that wind up literally all over the matte. The result is a film better suited to classrooms than theaters. Full Review

Village Voice
The tragic ending the material demands precludes viewers from complaining that the movie is the most unpleasant thing that could happen in a theater. Full Review
Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine
Under even the best of circumstances, Saving Lincoln would have to inevitably face the scrutiny of potential redundancy. Full Review
Gabe Toro
The Playlist
At its worst, the film is a panoply of ersatz camera placement and terrible scene blocking, actors having no clue how to interact with their surroundings as they rifle through dialogue that stands as a series of historical checkpoints rather than a cohesive story. Full Review

New York Daily News
The movie’s gimmick is having the actors visually superimposed over sets created from actual Civil War photographs. But this collage effect, while striving for truthfulness, comes off like a View-Master version of a tale already told. Full Review
