Lincoln was excellent. Daniel Day-Lewis did a fantastic job -- he truly became Lincoln in this movie. Wonderful supporting cast. I would highly recommend this movie.

Every American Must See This

By LeeReeNYC
Written November 10, 2012
Well written, beautifully shot and the actors are amazing. Daniel Day-Lewis IS Lincoln - every wrinkle and hair. Tommie Lee Jones is a revelation and so much fun to watch. But most amazing is Sally Field, who makes Mary Lincoln real, with all her madness you still love her, and so does the President. My only criticisms are that it covers a limited portion of Lincoln's legacy and that the African-American characters are not drawn according to history - Mrs. Keckley was SO MUCH MORE than a housekeeper. Bring the family - you'll b e proud to be American.

Great acting, well shot, poor screenplay

By MaverickRK

I felt the screenplay did a terrible job of tying a lot of episodic parts, and a vast collection of characters, together to move you through the story. It was easy to lose track of who was in favor of what and why.

A New Birth of Freedom! Lincoln, an Excellent Film

By Homer33
Written November 18, 2012
"Lincoln" is an excellent films that exhibits all of those qualities of excellence requisite for drama delineated by Aristotle in his book, "Poetics". That is: 1. Excellent plot development; 2. Excellent Character Development; 3. Excellent moral development; 4. Spectacle; and 5. Good music. While being extremely entertaining, the film stimulates the intellect and the emotions. It reminds one of the sacrifices that Lincoln and others made in order to maintain our nation and government "of, by, and for the people."
