I am sort of on the fence about my review of this movie. The actors were phenomenal! Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field, even Robert California from The Office!
The parts I loved besides the acting were the moving moments of the thirteenth amendment being voted on, the parts that showed the devastation of the Civil War. They were all super moving and you can feel like you are a witness to something incredible happening in history.
Then (paraphrasing my little brother) some parts feel like you are watching Olde Tyme C-SPAN. Yeah, a little slow and tedious. Probably very accurate of how it is to be a real life Congress member. And the movie is way long, like 2.5 hours.
If you really like history, or any of the actors in this movie, I recommend it because you will certainly enjoy the subject matter and/or their performance. If those things don't speak to you, you might want to pass.
I still need to go see Argo and Pitch Perfect, those both look really good!
Has anyone else seen it? What did you think?
