And man, it felt good. But that doesn't make the movie on it's own good or bad. As I said, the movie was solid. But it wasn't special.
I'm sorry I just don't agree with this point. Lincoln wouldn't have been as good as a movie if it was about a fictional character. It was a good movie because it was about someone that we all know and have some sort of feelings about.
