    Much of the time, this production plays out like an educational-film reenactment instead of a big-budget film.... Killing Lincoln is most effective in conveying just how determined Booth was.

    The Nat Geo movie is a thoroughly entertaining, exciting docudrama.

    As fascinating as the minutiae are, fine work by the cast makes me wish this had been a fully scripted miniseries.

    If Mr. Spielberg’s "Lincoln" achieves greatness largely through the detailed performances of Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and others, Killing Lincoln also has details to recommend it--historical details, the kind of tidbits that (along with Mr. Hanks’s assured narration) can hold your attention, even though the tale is familiar.
