Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Even for those looking for crazy fun, I think they'll be disappointed with how serious, and how much of Lincoln's life is actually included in this mashup.
The reviewers must have seen another movie or been too drunk to know what they were looking at. I loved Vampire Hunter. It is well paced. It is entertaining, and never for a moment boring, from beginning to end. Each of the characters fulfills an important role. Most importantly, it is true to the high character of Abraham Lincoln. It builds on his historical courage, his love of family, love for his country, and even his recklessness. Never mind the elitist, snobbish criticism of these idiots. Even the historical liberties are of a "so-what?" nature. This is not history, after all. This is well done, creative, entertainment. See Vampire Hunter. You'll be glad you did.

I'm not going to listen to their review because i don't have speakers here at work. But I will say that judging from the quote above, they obviously never read the book. I haven't seen the movie, but I will base what I write on what I read from the book. I knew we would see quotes like this from critics and I knew it would be widely panned. Mostly because the trailers are way to aggressive. But they are there SOLELY to bring people into the movie.
"Even for those looking for crazy fun, I think they'll be disappointed with how serious, and how much of Lincoln's life is actually included in this mashup."
The book is about 30% action with vampires and 70% historical Lincoln. Sure, the book is at it's core fictional, but it is littered with history. I suspect that the trailers mislead people into thinking this is another Twilight or mindless dreck like that, but the book is not. It was a great book.

The more reviews I read like this one, the more it seems that people are panning this movie due to defeated expectations of parody than because the movie itself was bad.
