Sepia Sick Sorrowful Wasted Effort
22 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Daniel Day Lewis was a great Linoln portrayal actor. Gregory Peck was. They both did excellent jobs. Here, in this totally unrealistic and unreal flick everything is wrong, and it can awake only one decent emotion - laughter. And then having one's shoulders shrugged. Awful, amateurish, shallow, slick and very untrue to historical roots, this unfunny, insidious and unreal effort is a waste of time, money and wits. It is not even funny to entertain. It is sepia dark, sickly sour and badly executed imagination-land of what coulda shoulda woulda. My advice - do not even try to watch this. It is awful and empty
