Kelly's Review of Lincoln

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Following this movie was, initially a little difficult. Some of us might find the day to day work of congressmen a little dull. Adding 19th century lingo to that makes for a slow start to the movie. But Daniel Day-Lewis' is unwavering and as we become more engaged in his performance, the rest of the film picks up. By the end of the film we feel like we truly witnessed the 13th amendment being passed.

My only complaint is that with Lincoln, we have further proof that Spielberg has lost his gritty edge to his sentimental side. Gone are films like Saving Private Ryan, War of the worlds, Catch Me if you Can, and Munich.
