Samuel L. Jackson Bashes The Ending Of ‘Lincoln’
Film

Finding the right way to end film is a task that can either make or break the entire experience. A powerful ending can elevate a somewhat mediocre film to respectability; however, a weak one can drag an otherwise solid movie down with it!

In a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, Samuel L. Jackson made it clear he was not a fan of the end of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, which detailed the final moments of the life of the 16th president.

“I don’t understand why it didn’t just end when Lincoln is walking down the hall and the butler gives him his hat,” he told the site. “Why did I need to see him dying on the bed? I have no idea what Spielberg was trying to do.”

He continued, “I didn’t need the assassination at all. Unless he’s going to show Lincoln getting his brains blown out. And even then, why am I watching it? The movie had a better ending 10 minutes before.”

Let us know if you agree with Jackson, or if you think that Spielberg gave us the perfect ending to his powerful presidential biopic!
