It is not an action movie! It's a film about Abe Lincoln. What did you think you were going to see for all of those naysayers out there?? Spielberg has created an intelligent, amazing, realistic film about an important American figure. I know some dramatic license was taken, but it is a movie after all. And a good one at that. Oh, and Sallie Field played Mrs. Lincoln to the hilt. Tommy Lee is Stephens - with his cratchety old self! Good stuff.
