I enjoyed the storyline of combining the Civil war and Abe Lincoln with vampires, but silver bullets or not, three good guys would not be able to defeat that many vampires on the train. So it turns into just an action film - and all action with little believability turns me off.

I admit, when I first heard about this movie I was really sceptical. Who wouldn't? It sounds completely absurd even as a work of fiction. Who'd think of putting Lincoln and Vampires together in one movie? But after seeing the first trailer I was really looking forward to this as ...

Silly premise aside, this film is a mess of torrid pacing and charisma vacuumed non-acting.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is not good enough to be taken seriously and a bit too good to label as a b-movie. It should be regarded as a really good big budget b-movie. Take it for what it is and what it always set out to do and you cannot fault it. If the idea got you excit...

It wasn't a very good movie, but I found it entertaining. It's overly serious in it's tone and the editing is choppy and it has bad CGI. So why did I enjoy it? I think the acting and the themes of the film are what pulled me through it. The acting was actually decent and some of ...
