Critic Reviews for Saving Lincoln

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The film feels like an animated Wikipedia page, just sort of running through the greatest hits of Lincoln's life in office - the Emancipation Proclamation! Gettysburg! The Theater! - without any real insight.

February 20, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Under even the best of circumstances, Saving Lincoln would have to inevitably face the scrutiny of potential redundancy.

February 15, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Note to filmmakers: Just because you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should do it.

February 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Comes off like a View-Master version of a tale already told.

February 14, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Litvak's shoestring production sketches in episodes from Lincoln's entire administration, including a strange "Dixie'' singalong on the White House steps to mark the end of the war.

February 14, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The script, while largely historically accurate, is undermined by stilted dialogue, and the pic is laced with ill-fitting parts that wind up literally all over the matte.
