Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Spielberg's 'Lincoln' burns itself into your memory like no other film about American politics.
| Original Score: A
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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]
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Spielberg's 'Lincoln' gives us the fullest portrait of the man on the five dollar bill that Hollywood has produced.
| Original Score: 8/10
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.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
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...
| Original Score: 3/4
A remarkable performance by Daniel Day-Lewis is the glue that holds Lincoln together. Without him, this would be a very unremarkable film.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
A focused, remarkably human production, anchored by Day-Lewis' understated performance as the softly spoken, long winded, devilishly funny Abraham
Those interested in the subject matter should find it informative, eye-opening and rewarding.
| Original Score: A-
Lincoln is a far more reckless, entertaining, unusual, but ultimately horribly uneven film than its pedigree may suggest.
This is easily Spielberg's best picture since Schindler's List. Having a two-term black president now in the White House can't hurt its chances, either.
| Original Score: 4/5
A literally and metaphorically towering performance by Daniel Day Lewis as the 1.93cm Abraham Lincoln drives this historically riveting and personally impassioned ... riveting ... film
It is Daniel Day-Lewis' indelible portrait of the President, visionary, raconteur, husband and family man that stands at the forefront, as he resolutely realises his goal to abolish slavery
The biggest compliment we can pay Joanna Johnston's costumes in Lincoln is that you hardly notice them. This is a far subtler film than you might expect.
It may indulge its subject a little too much but it highlights the road to a momentous occasion with an intimacy that gives emotional weight to political machinations
The actual vote on the Amendment proves surprisingly gripping, but elsewhere moments of piety and sentimentality undermine Day-Lewis's magnificent, credibly flesh-and-blood Lincoln.
