Sean's Review of Lincoln

5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Another masterful performance by Daniel Day-Lewis who looked amazing as Lincoln. Not only physically with great oscar-worthy make up but in his performance which again was masterful. As for the content of the movie it was not about his whole life as the title might have you thinking but focuses on after the Emancipation Proclomation was written and the battle to get the 13th amendment to the Constitution abolishing slavery passed. I found it very interesting to watch the details of how that all happened. The supporting cast was to notch and even JGL was in it which I did not know until I saw it! A very well made oscar worthy movie just not one of my absolute favorites for 2012 so I give it the very respectable 4.5 stars. Highly recommended.
