    Interesting drama, well acted but very slow and a bit hard to sit through but gets better halfway.

    OK movie but not a movie for multiple viewings.

    Lewis is terrific as usual!!!

    Monolithic: a powerfully framed, deliberately paced mature masterpiece that sumptuously captures a period of incredible importance. Day Lewis steals the heart without firing a shot: wry, meditative, verbose, grand, and utterly symbolic, transcendent, really; and the rest of the terrific cast can but trail in his wake. Everyone is on their A game. I emerged from the theater in silence knowing I'd probably seen the best film of the year. The anti-Transformers. 5 years 5 months ago

    Being European I don't know that much about Lincoln or slavery so I can't really have an opinion on how truthful this film was, but I really enjoyed it. I didn't expect to like it so much and my dad saw it before me and said he found it pretty boring so I didn't have much expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised! Yes, there were no big action sequences but not every film has to have those, and I wasn't bored at any point. As I said I don't know how accurately they portrayed Lincoln in the film but I really loved the character. Great performance by Daniel Day-Lewis and I don't know, I just really liked him! Also good little comedy moments here and there, not too obvious to effect the seriousness of the film. 5 years 10 months ago
