Quick review: Spielberg’s Lincoln.

I saw Lincoln this afternoon.

Good acting, esp of course Daniel Day-Lewis.

Famous TV actors from Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Law & Order. Surprising and fun to see them in 19th century costumes.

Basically it’s a shallow ho-hum Hollywood movie. No surprises. A plot that could be on any TV show, not even a very good one.

There were a couple of decent jokes in there, esp one about George Washington.

A movie that will be quickly forgotten, though it will probably win a few awards.

Could have almost reviewed it in 140 characters, decided to write just a few more. 🙂

Worth seeing, but not with a whole lot of enthusiasm.
