Rostek's Review of Lincoln

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


The cast is terrific, with Sally Field being the only real disappointment to me. Her character had so little to do with the amendment and I didn't need to see witness her breakdowns. The script is the best thing about the film though - it's partly a political thriller, partly a meditation on human rights and political philosophy.. The cast standout: Tommy Lee Jones. I still can't decide if seeing him with S. Epatha Merkerson was something the film needed in the end, but he was dynamite.
