Killing Lincoln Blu-ray Review

Based on The New York Times best-selling novel, KILLING LINCOLN is the suspenseful, eye-opening account of the events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While some aspects of the plot to slay Lincoln and cripple the newly forming union are widely known, much more of the history unfolds in this insightful thriller. As John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret faction of conspirators forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever. Narrated by Oscar Winner Tom Hanks and produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, this historical masterpiece stars Billy Campbell (TV’s The Killing) in a spectacular turn as President Lincoln.

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I sat down with the hubby and watched Killing Lincoln. There are many different movies and books about our former president and so when we sat down to watch this I didn't think this would be that different since everything surrounding his death we've all learned about in school. That's one part of history you just can't forget. 

The movie however did intrigue both my hubby and me and we were glued to the television. The acting was fantastic and the story line was written very well. Billy Campbell did an amazing job playing President Lincoln. The movie even had me looking up more information about Lincoln, which I think mainly because I love watching movies that document real life/true events. I'd definitely recommend this for any one who is a history buff. 

Killing Lincoln was released on blu-ray and DVD on June 11th for purchase. 
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Killing Lincoln on blu-ray at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
