Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter brings to the screen the secret life of our nation's favorite president...as history's greatest hunter of the undead. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The violence quickly becomes numbing, and Benjamin Walker plays Lincoln without the sense of irony needed to keep the historical and supernatural sides of the story consistently entertaining."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"The disconnect between intention and final product is a head scratcher."
‑ Ricardo Baca, Denver Post
"Somehow, you can't help but feel vampires deserve better."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"Succeeds in being an entertaining, exciting, and chilling genre hybrid"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Frankly, if it gets kids talking about history again, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter succeeds where a lot of other films stumble-and even if it's kind of a lame duck, there's still a lot of dignity in that."
‑ Patrick Kolan, Shotgun Critic
"The movie plays safe by cutting every theme down the middle - a swing that's effective when splitting wood or vampire skulls, but dull when applied to filmmaking."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Bekmambetov doesn't expect us to take the premise seriously, exactly. But he doesn't seem to want us to laugh at it, either."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Film.com
"Rather than create an innovative style to complement the horror-history hybrid, he employs superhero clichés and hackneyed action scenes that only help distract from the ineffectiveness of the film's scant 3-D effects."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"As a tongue-in-cheek action mashup, Grahame-Smith and Bekmambetov have, for the most part, delivered an entertaining (albeit campy) historical retelling."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"What you get with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is an interesting concept that has a number of structural problems."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Of course it's ridiculous and tasteless and grotesque. It's ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"Bekmambetov ... stages hilarious, imaginative, almost free-form action sequences like nobody in the business."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"If you thought the American Civil War was about ending slavery, you're in for a rude surprise."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"A rancid hot pot of over-caffeinated action, choppy editing, self-importance and retarded scripting, Lincoln is the worst blockbuster in recent memory..."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter doesn't even come close to living up to the fun, silly nature of its premise. The film is a dull, humorless, ugly-looking slog."
‑ Jonathan Lack, We Got This Covered
