I went to see the new movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter about a week ago at the Hollywood Cinemas in Littleton, CO. The Fandango website at Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter describes the movie as follows…
“As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved...”
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a goofy, graphic and somewhat ridiculous flick that definitely had lots of action and adventure. It’s definitely not a movie for everyone, since it’s a hybrid between a science fiction, horror and action movie rolled into one that is more like a zombie movie than a vampire movie. These movies always fail because initially it’s almost impossible to kill a vampire or a zombie and by the end of the film the main character could take them out with a bb gun, but in this case it was his axe.
The story was actually pretty good from the standpoint of a group of age old vampires were feeding on people for their meal ticket and helped bring about the American Civil War to try to take over the United States. I guess that’s the reason why President Abraham Lincoln was chosen as the main character and the author wanted a catchy title to sell more books, but it kind of wrecked the movie and the story in my opinion. It was just way too far fetched since the movie was already lacking in the believability department and had me scratching my head too many times saying, “Okay?”.
I couldn’t talk Becky into seeing this movie with me. She had zero interest in it at all. I went with a buddy of mine and he loved it. I thought it was okay for what it was, so I would have to rate it a Rental at best, if you like horror action movies with somewhat ridiculous plots.
