Compelling movie and Oscar quality performances by Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln and Billy Bob Thornton as Thadeus Stevens. Speilberg hits a home run for best director.

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!

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.

I really wanted to like it: a movie about a hero of mine, with a great director and good actors; but it was slow and ponderous, and the photography was clever rather than effective. The scenes of the awfulness of war were good, but Lincoln was not quite believable as portrayed. The best actor was Tommie Lee Jones as the secretary of State, followed by Sally Fields.

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!
