Typhon's Review of Lincoln

  • 6 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

    Lincoln (2012)

    Quite a spectacle. The entire film is excellently acted and the story covers enough to be interesting, but does not stretch the timeline too far, allowing the film to explore this single, dramatic period in American history. There is more tension than drama that fills the movie, and other than a single scene set in the House of Representatives, I did not truly feel any real moments of insurmountable excitement. The score by John Williams is also thoroughly unremarkable, although it does, in a way, reflect the calmness that Lincoln maintains. Overall, a fine film, but lacks the epicness and grandeur that one would expect from a film on such a monumental piece of history.
