Cinema Sight

Spielberg brings a level of tension to what could have been an overly stuff historical period piece. He's supported by a superb cast highlighted by the work of Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President of the United States.

This is a wonderful film, full of detail and behavior, and one that lifts broadened historical details into a poetic marriage of humanity and triumph.

Eric D. Snider

When it focuses on the political, social, and historical side of things - which is 80% of the film - it's grand, populist, high-minded entertainment.

It's very good, but that's not the point. It's necessary.

Sacramento Bee

Spielberg and Kushner lend the House scenes so much vigor that "Lincoln" comes fully alive for about half an hour. Then Spielberg tacks on three addenda, and thus dissipates the good will that has developed on both sides of the movie-theater aisle.

Spielberg's 'Lincoln' burns itself into your memory like no other film about American politics.

A bit like watching the West Wing played by Amish People. Desperately needed 40 minutes cut out of what is essentially quite a beautifully made movie.

Day-Lewis...wears well the weariness of the office and Lincoln's puckish yet subdued sense of humor, scaling the man closer to life-size than Mount Rushmore monumental. [Blu-ray]

Spielberg's 'Lincoln' gives us the fullest portrait of the man on the five dollar bill that Hollywood has produced.

Kevin A. Ranson

Pushing this film as merely 'Lincoln' is something of an injustice to the man himself, as if audiences wouldn't have any interest in the actual story of the film.

Somewhere in there, Lincoln will call upon [his administration's] faculties and better sense, and the film about him will ask something similar of us.

A spellbinding performance and a beautifully nuanced film about statesmanship, quiet contemplation and - above all else - principle.

Once you settle in, this is an educational and enlightening epic. Yes, it can be ponderous, but for the most part, Lincoln is entertaining.

A powerful and brilliant look at the most important moment in US history...

Oddly, Spielberg chooses to set his gabby epic largely indoors...This gives Lincoln a rather inert feel...It's infuriating that spectacular battle scenes are described in the film, but not shown.

A remarkable performance by Daniel Day-Lewis is the glue that holds Lincoln together. Without him, this would be a very unremarkable film.

February 11, 2013

Spielberg's guarded representation of Honest Abe highlights some problems with the biopic format, especially in terms of veracity, and especially in terms of how we can (or can't) measure accuracy as the years roll by.

Every ounce of time-honoured respect a nation has seen fit to bestow upon The Great Emancipator is addressed frame by frame in Steven Spielberg's stately masterwork, Lincoln.

For the most part Lincoln is not a significant inclusion into Spielberg's filmography despite the noblest of intentions and undeniable cinematic craftsmanship.
