This movie is best for people who love History or politics. If you are looking for a civil war epic or battle scenes look elsewhere. I have always been a Lincoln fan. I loved the movie, my husband just thought it was good. I was completely into it from the first moment and it felt like you were really there.... like a fly on the wall. It wasn't a feel good Disney version, I appreciated that. There was humor at just the right time. Lincoln's dialogue was memorizing. The actors were amazing, the story was thought provoking. I love Lincoln more. Will see it again.
