Nick Ledgerwood90 - Daniel Day-Lewis did what he always does: Gets crazy into a role and knocks it completely out of the park. He’s probably the favorite to win Best Actor, though I would like to see the Academy recognize someone else. Otherwise? There’s not much to see about this film. When Spielberg, Day-Lewis, Sally Field, and Tommy Lee Jones are all involved in a film, what do you expect?

Bryan Lienesch89 - Daniel Day Lewis is nothing short of brilliant as Lincoln. Outside of that, though, the film is a little too long and meandering for its own good.

Rob from GuysFilmQuest80 - Acting was good, as were the costumes and scenery. Pacing was too slow. Dialogue was painful. Took two tries to get through it. Tempted to rate it lower.
