So I saw this movie last year and realize after going through my post that I did not review this movie or say anything about it. Well I watched it again on HBO and it was as good as the first time I saw it. Sure it's about one of Americas greatest president being a vampire slayer that's what attracted me to watching it.
I love the take on how this movie portrays such a great and iconic American and a hard time in our nations history and place it a long the whole vampire phenomenon that we're currently going through not only in our writing, but also in movies. It is a great take on what really pushed Lincoln to become the man that went on to lead the nation into a civil war, not just for the freedom of a people, but to save our asses from being vampire food.
The fight scenes are awesome. The way Benjamin Walker handles an axe you would think that he'd been doing it all his life. The graphics are great and the vampires takes us back to the traditional vampires in a sense. They don't sparkle and they are brutal. The only think they can do like today's sexified vampires is walk around in the sun, but off course wearing shades.
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is a must see in my book. Benjamin Walker was a great pick to play Lincoln. He really looked a lot like the late late really late president. Anyway I thought I would let you know to check it out if you've got two hours to spear and want something entertaining to watch. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter gets an 8 out of 10 in my book. Wish the ending was different, but you can rewrite history that much.
