SlooooooooooowWow. I like long period-piece dramas as much as the next guy but I was shocked at how slow and one note this was. Lewis is obviously excellent but not enough of a story to keep me interested. Be warned..Score: 3/5
This movie was awesome!While it is long it was over too soon for me! Excellent acting and period correct everything. If you are fascinated with history coming alive you should see this movie. -Steve Beck, Salem, Oregon May 10, 2013.Score: 5/5
BoringWho would have believed that a Civil War movie would be boring? Who would have believed that a tale of Washington intrigue would be boring? Alas, this is a snorer. You get to watch "Honest Abe" bribe congressmen to pass the XIIIth Amendment..Score: 3/5

Fantastic MovieWonderful movie that shows the complexities and leadership of Lincoln. Interesting so many of the negative reviews are just the vinegar of some Southerners who say the movie ‘rewrites’ history all while they characterize the war as the ‘war of Northern aggression’, while they argue the war had nothing to do with slavery and while they seem to fail to recognize the acts of treason their own family members committed against the United States. Yes, we are still fighting this war….and it’s time to remember who actually won..Score: 5/5

Abe the greatStephen Spielberg, Daniel Day Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, & Sally Field are the perfect combination. Day Lewis makes a great Abraham Lincoln. I give it four stars because the movie did not stay faithful to the history books. This movie reminds me why Spielberg is my favorite Director!.Score: 4/5
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray & 4K neededAmazing movie about Lincoln, but can you add upgrade to 4K so people can watch them online, and also rerelease this on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with digital copy for iTunes? This is really annoying to me when the Special Features appear on the Home Video releases of movies, but not on iTunes because technology is advancing everyday. Also where is the purchasing price? Can you please restore the purchasing price and iTunes Extras?.Score: 5/5
One of the best movies I've seen in a long timeBy far one of the best movies I've seen in my life. The collection of actors that were brought in to do this movie along with their individual performances is nothing short of brilliance. Daniel Day lewis puts in an acting effort makes you say "oh, this is why I love movies." I highly recommend this movie..Score: 5/5

TerribleThis was the 2nd worst movie I rented from iTunes. It was so, boring we turned it off after an hour. I’m wondering if I can get my rental money refunded from iTunes. It might be time for Spielberg to retire. If you suffer from insomnia, it might be a good movie to watch. Take my advice, don’t waste your money..Score: 1/5
Like reading an old newspaper."You are witnessing the greatest American of all time" is the implicit punctuation for almost every scene. Lincoln says something, people are in awe. Repeat for 3 hours. Deft political calculations are made in candle-lit rooms. His wife is pretty crazy, but she lost a child. The lighting, cinematography, costume design, set design, music and acting were perfect..Score: 3/5
Great casting, weak story lineDaniel Day-Lewis was perfect as Lincoln. I thought the story line was weak and at times felt that I was watching a documentary rather than a drama..Score: 2/5

The book was way betterI wish the movie would've been more like the book by Doris Goodwin. The book was way more informative and interesting than this movie. Also, why wouldn't there be a scene of when he got shot in the end? That would've added a great end to the drama..Score: 2/5

Boring but great actingDaniel day-lewis, as usual, puts on an amazing performance. Though this was a historical time in American society, it's a pretty boring topic for those who live in countries that never had slavery and racism and see it as an American problem. Set aside my opinion on the subject and storyline........ the acting was stellar!!!.Score: 3/5
Probably buy it.I watched this movie 3 times during it's rental period, which I don't think I've done with a iTunes rental before. The acting was superb as per usual with Daniel Day-Lewis, but Tom Lee Jones and Sally Field were on top of their games here as well. Subtle, but powerful. A triumph of a movie..Score: 5/5
