Critic Reviews for Abraham Lincoln

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

When a picture moves you to exaltation it is likely to impress you as a fine picture. Abraham Lincoln gave me that lift of spirit which is not film-induced every day in the week. I shall remember it for that.

Lincoln's life and his character... are on the heroic scale, and this film has excellently recreated both; but more than that, it has an unaffected simplicity and naturalness very much more powerful than any mock-romance.
