Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Lincoln paints a powerful and compelling portrait of the man who has become an icon. We don't need to see more of his life to understand how rare a figure he was - this window is more than sufficient.
Fresh: It's very good, but that's not the point. It's necessary.
Fresh: Lincoln offers proof of what magic can happen when an actor falls in love with his character. Because as great as Day-Lewis has been in his many parts, he has never seemed quite so smitten.
Fresh: A bit like watching the West Wing played by Amish People. Desperately needed 40 minutes cut out of what is essentially quite a beautifully made movie.
This movie was awesome!
While it is long it was over too soon for me! Excellent acting and period correct everything. If you are fascinated with history coming alive you should see this movie.
