Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D

Tim Burton presents this action mash-up of American history and horror fantasy directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), following the rise of Abraham Lincoln as both a nation’s leader and a hunter of the undead.

Long before any political aspirations, Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) was driven by the desire for revenge against Jack Barts (Marton Csokas) - the killer of his mother. But Barts is no mortal man. Aided by a vampire expert (Dominic Cooper), Lincoln learns to channel his anger into a more noble task: the destruction of all vampires across America.

A Civil War-era actioner of questionable taste and historical accuracy but surprisingly consistent entertainment value.

What [Bekmambetov] doesn't do is offer us any respite from his 3D CGI barrage, an assault on the senses that makes the bullet John Wilkes Booth fired into the real Abe's noggin seem calming by comparison.

This ludicrous CGI extravaganza, based on the comic horror novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, can stand proudly beside the best-worst of Ed Wood and Uwe Boll.

Bekmambetov directs with gusto, and the forthright absurdity of the story, combined with its weirdly heartfelt self-belief is winning.

Without a doubt the best film we are ever likely to see on the subject - unless there is a sequel, which is unlikely, because at the end, the Lincolns are on their way to the theater.

This insipid mashup of history lesson and monster flick takes itself semi-seriously, which is truly deadly.

Genre enthusiasts will lap up the mixture of action and fantasy, while history buffs who don't mind a bit of rewriting will dig into an alternative spin on the Civil War period.

The grave tone makes it stiff and leaden, the digi-saturated look is a turn-off. Damnable and disordered.

I'll be honest - somehow I missed learning about American history in high school, so I really only knew the bare minimum about Abraham Lincoln. I knew enough to know that he wasn't *really* a Vampire Hunter, of course... ;) but other than that, I had to rely on the actors and the storyline to guide me. And you know what? They succeeded! I've not seen the...

I won tickets to this movie, it would not be a movie I would choose to see but I actually enjoyed it! The fight scenes were really good and it was an entertaining movie.

Interesting concept. I guess there are so many other vampire movies out there that they had to think of something different. Who thought of good old Abe being a vampire hunter! Overall it was enjoyable with a lot going on. 3D was pretty good....liked the blood splatter effects. I had no attachment to the characters so didnt care who died....not many did...

It is indeed a mystery movie, and it really amazes me and my friend who went with me, all the while we thought it would be the latest Batman movie... but we are happy it was Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D, we are not fans of vampire movies, but this time we were really entertained, we enjoyed every minute of the movie... it was historical facts but we...

First of all ... a Big "Thank you" for the movie tickets! We did not know what to expect, and definitely would not have chosen this to see, as I think the age bracket for this movie would have been around the 15 - 28 - just not our scene, or genre! But in saying that, I did like that it was educational, to a degree, scary - most definitely, sexy - no,...

Saw this last night in the mystery screening where I had completely convinced myself that the movie was going to be Cabin in the Woods. So, I was initially disappointed when the film started. Luckily however, the movie starts with quite a fast pace, getting us into Vampire territory rather quickly. After that it starts to slow down a bit and after such a...

It was ok, not really my thing. While watching the movie it felt like there were bits and pieces missing here and there. There wasn't a good flow in the storyline. The action part was good and great scene that make you jump. Thanks for the tickets flicks!

I took a mate with me who thought this was the best movie he has seen at the movies this year (he's a teenager so probably the target audience), I on the other hand thought it was ok, the action sequences were good but the storyline was just average. I did enjoy the movie, it had some humour to it and did not try and take it all too seriously, which was...

9 out of 10 for the entertainment, i was swept away on Abe's story, we all wanted to see the bearded fella swing that AXE. It intertwinded the historical with a totally different genre and it was Very successful

This movie really struggles on so many levels. You don't get a chance to warm to characters. Or you just don't warm to them. The lead actor is underwhelming. It could be trying to be a historical Abe Lincoln and serious, in a movie that at times felt it should be a comedy or action flick. The slow talking dorky Abe just didn't fit with action hero. This...
