Awesome, Serious, but awesome.

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.

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 learned a lot about Lincoln and what a hard time it was for him and his family. I was able to stay awake which is good news for me because when a movie is boring I have a hard time staying awake. The acting was superb. At times the rhetoric when they were debating the bill was a little hard to follow. The 3 people that I went with enjoyed the movie also.

Historically this movie was great. It was very long and drawn out without very much dynamic transitions. I would like to have seen more drama vs. "story" telling. Needs to be seen but I probably wont watch it again.

THE BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR. Give Daniel Day - Lewis the Academy Award. Sally Field should be up for Best Actress, and either Joseph Gorden - Levit, Tommy Lee Jones or Donald Straithan best supporting actor nominations. Everything about this movie was fabolous, this is a MUST SEE FOR EVERYBODY, but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.
