Movie Review – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

When I first heard about this film I thought it sounded pretty cool, and when I saw the first trailer those initial feelings were locked in place. So when I also found out it was directed by Timur Bekmambetov, the man behind the awesome ‘Wanted’ from a few years back, I was even more excited!

“Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.”

It’s not often that a film is so bad that it makes me want to go back and watch the director's old films which I liked, and see if they were actually shit as well. I loved 'Wanted', but 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter' was balls!!! Badly written, tonnes of nonsensical action scenes, and kind of badly made, so yeah, pretty disappointing. I can’t really figure out why the whole thing didn’t work, but I guess sometimes despite the people involved, a film just misses the mark.
C+ From Me!!!
