This movie was the equlivent of watching grass grow.
This movie was a cartoon...a pandering, distorted embarrassment. Perhaps it was convincing entertainment for the sub-literate, but for those of us who can read it is beneath our intelligence.
Exceptional - prefectly portrayed. Highly recommend.
I have seen quite a few movies that was rated five stars which in my opinion I would give 2 or 3 stars. The whole movie was poor quality, poor acting, bad story line and left with the feeling of regrets, wasted my money and time which because of the preview I thought was good. Usually only the interesting part of the movie was advertised. Some of the most disappointing movies I saw : silverlinning, Mama, Paranormal activity all after the first one among several others.
For the person who wrote the comments below I fear your opinion comes from a place of condescension. I went to the movie excited about viewing such an important piece of history. I was bored. It doesn't make the moment in time any less important.
Possibly the most important act of legislation in history. When someone calls this movie "boring" I am reminded of an incident described by the curator of the Mona Lisa. Some young yahoo was viewing the picture and said, "I don't see anything special about it." The curator responded, "Young man, the picture is not being judged, you are." Anyone who calls "Lincoln" boring says a lot about him or her self; nothing about the film.
Very good acting. The visual was so realistic, I felt I was taken back in time. Lincoln is a boring movie and unfortunately, I was bored most of the time. This is a true story with a deep meaning but I felt unemotional.
I really liked DDL as Lincoln. It is a slow movie to say the least... but I liked and I challenge anyone to say otherwise.
The movie was very good. Good directing, smart script and interesting characters. The movie becomes great due to the brilliant performance by Daniel Day Lweis - clearly our generations best actor. His performance lifts this movie to greatness.
