Succeeds in being an entertaining, exciting, and chilling genre hybrid

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.

While the film eventually feels a little exhausting, particularly in the protracted but impressive finale, it works as well as this material possibly could.

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.

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

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.

A funny, scary, and cheer-worthy adventure that somehow manages to make the 16th President of the United States a bad-ass action hero.

Other than not knowing what's going on when the action gets heavy, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is fairly outstanding. It's downright ridiculous at times and extremely outrageous to its core, but is unbelievably entertaining from beginning to end.

A lot better than I'd expected. In itself, that's not saying all that much since I was prepared for it to be pretty bad.

If there's anything more radical and outrageous than the very title and concept, it's how focused and committed director Timur Bekmambetov and writer Seth Grahame-Smith are to its execution.

The movie works because the story outside the vampire zone sweet spot is played straight and with some heart.

Rip up the history books and don your 3D glasses for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a stupefyingly silly but exuberantly entertaining horror fantasy.

With its outrageous premise of turning Honest Abe into a slayer of the undead, one would expect to see the president snuffing out vamps in astounding ways. To this end, and as pure, thrill-ride entertainment, the movie certainly delivers.

If you are going to re-imagine the 16th president of the United States as a vampire hunter, go big or go home. "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter" has chosen the former.

As played by Walker, Abe is a 19th Century Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent, his mild demeanor a mask for a man of strength.

Of course it's ridiculous and tasteless and grotesque. It's ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER.
