About the Film
Steven Spielberg helms his long-in-the-making biopic of Abraham Lincoln for DreamWorks and Touchstone Pictures. Daniel Day-Lewis portrays the former head of state in the Tony Kushner-penned adaptation of Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team of Rivals, which chronicles the President's time in office between 1861 and 1865 as he dealt with personal demons and politics during the Civil War. Sally Field leads a co-starring cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Academy Award nominee John Hawkes.
Not as good as the hype
I did fall asleep it is so slow. No doubt the actors are very good but not a film I would want to see more than once.
When I started playing the movie, the audio was set to Spanish. Not a problem; however when I switched to English audio the volume is too quiet, about half the level of the Spanish audio.
It was too quite to watch on the TV, even at 100% volume.
So bought the movie and unable to listen and watch it at a reasonable distance from the screen.
iTunes hopefully you can release an update for this movie to increase the volume levels because at 6GB it's too large to download again on the off chance that the audio has been fixed
Not boring in the slightest!
If you like political drama with deep thematic content, then this is the movie for you. Wonderful dialogue well-delivered, with plenty of modern-day relevance.
If you like fast movies with all the depth of a sheet of paper, go and watch the latest Die Hard instead.
Regards the Spanish problem: I bought the SD version and can confirm that the audio is now set to English.
