The movie sets itself up for a sequel. The good news is that it's bad enough that we'll be spared that fate.

It all sounds silly, but for the most part director Timur Bekmambetov stages it like a reenactment you'd see on the History Channel. It's all kind of proper and stuffy and rather slow and methodical.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is not entirely without merit, but it comes with much mess.
January 25, 2019
For all its cult ambition, Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter feels like two separate movies bundled into one messy final package.

It's essentially a cracked-out Wikipedia entry interrupted by bloody, slo-mo combat.

Lincolns from Walter Huston to Henry Fonda to Brendan Fraser and Lance Henriksen have given us the Great Emancipator as their directors and our dreams would have him. Inaccurately. Why not throw vampires into the mix?

It was the merger of that very real historical account and the fantastical vampire plot that made the book interesting, but the movie sacrificed a lot of that. Too much of that.

If you ever wanted to see a vampire throw a horse at a would-be President, or see a man chop down a tree with one blow, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will tick those boxes and more besides.

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 clichs 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
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...
September 26, 2012
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.

What you get with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is an interesting concept that has a number of structural problems.
September 14, 2012
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.
September 10, 2012
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.
