This is one of those movies where, when you go to see it, you feel satisfied that you spent the money! Excellent acting, great story telling. I'd recommend it....I've seen it twice!

Very good historical writings. Daniel Day Lewis as Abe Lincoln is superb. As always Steven Spielberg was able to capture the true essence of the most important event of American history.

not quite what i expected. very narrow focus and time frame. worht the price of admission just to watch daniel day lewis at his craft. maybe the best acting performance i have ever seen in my 44 years!

I really enjoyed the scenes where everyone would watch Lincoln with admiration and awe…probably because that is what I was doing also.
In my opinion, Daniel Day Lewis did a terrific job portaying Lincoln.

Daniel Day-Lewis once again wins the Oscar. This is a role designed for Award-bait but that doesn't make it any less of a accomplishment because Lincoln is such an iconic character and the performance was so subtle and expert. Sally Field was the weakest link in a all-around great ensemble cast with many faces you'll recognize who disappear into their characters.
This movie is a courtroom-like political drama. The script must have been 12 inches thick, the dialogue is just densely packed with wit, powerful monologues and era specific language. This is an All-American classic in the very best of ways and it will almost certainly be a staple for U.S. History classes for decades to come.
