Rare is a film this silly that's also this quietly clever.

Somehow, you can't help but feel vampires deserve better.

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.

If you thought the American Civil War was about ending slavery, you're in for a rude surprise.

Succeeds in being an entertaining, exciting, and chilling genre hybrid
Ben Kendrick
September 27, 2012
As a tongue-in-cheek action mashup, Grahame-Smith and Bekmambetov have, for the most part, delivered an entertaining (albeit campy) historical retelling.

A rancid hot pot of over-caffeinated action, choppy editing, self-importance and retarded scripting, Lincoln is the worst blockbuster in recent memory...

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

What you get with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is an interesting concept that has a number of structural problems.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10

With the most preposterous of plots, one would expect "Lincoln" to be funny, but it's not. It takes itself as seriously as a disease, and therein lies the biggest problem with this film.

completely ludicrous but fun.

While the film eventually feels a little exhausting, particularly in the protracted but impressive finale, it works as well as this material possibly could.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.5/10

If The Matrix turned the humble spoon into an enduring visual motif for the cinematic dinner table, Vampire Hunter attempts to do the same with a fork.

Bekmambetov knows his way around supernatural movies very well but he just doesn't seem to have the sense of humour needed for this one.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 5, 2012
The most important thing about enjoyably trashy, title-says-it-all action films such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is to keep everything moving so fast and on such a huge scale that nobody will care too much about how monumentally silly it all is.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The Popcorn Junkie
August 3, 2012
Uses cues from the life of the former US President and builds an unwieldy supernatural story on top of it.

AL:VH is easy to dismiss and equally as easy to forget, but it does what it does well.

Sounds like it was pitched at the tail-end of a particularly cynical, three-day, coke-fuelled marketing strategy session in between Transformers with Boobs and The Voice: The Movie...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

What makes Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter so enjoyable is the extent it abandons so many established rules not just in terms of history and genre, but also physics.
