Saving Lincoln Reviews

Mark Olsen
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The film feels like an animated Wikipedia page, just sort of running through the greatest hits of Lincoln's life in office - the Emancipation Proclamation! Gettysburg! The Theater! - without any real insight.

Note to filmmakers: Just because you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should do it.

Comes off like a View-Master version of a tale already told.

Litvak's shoestring production sketches in episodes from Lincoln's entire administration, including a strange "Dixie'' singalong on the White House steps to mark the end of the war.

The script, while largely historically accurate, is undermined by stilted dialogue, and the pic is laced with ill-fitting parts that wind up literally all over the matte.

Imagine the stiffness of a Star Wars prequel but without the bravura technique.
