Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D(2012)
President by day. Hunter by night.
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.... More
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.Hide

This much-anticipated creative melding of Bekmambetov and Burton has to go down as the big disappointment of the year so far. In their determination to remain historically accurate, the pair have forgotten to have fun with what is essentially a lurid and laughable idea.... More
The antics of the top-hatted, axe-wielding Civil War-era aspiring American politician as he vows vengeance on the Dixie-siding bloodsuckers who took his mammy (most notably horribly typecast Kiwi Marton Csokas) just cry out for Gettysberg-inspired one-liners. However, instead we just get po-faced multiple beheadings, with grainly special effects rendered almost unwatchable when viewed through Bekmambetov’s gloom-filled palette.
A bizarro combination of The Matrix Revolutions and New Zealand’s own Perfect Creature, this is only worth watching for fans of feral facial fuzz, the winsome Winstead and for the truly surreal sight of Speights’ former Southern Man throwing a horse at our hero during a battle scene.
Lincoln himself once said that “everybody likes a compliment”, sadly it’s hard to find anything good to say about this cinematic stain on his good name.Hide

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D

I've not seen the majority of these actors before, which was actually really refreshing, and I reckon they all did a great job at bringing their characters to... More life. I particularly enjoyed Dominic Cooper's role - definitely brought some energy and spark into the mix. Benjamin Walker was a charming Abraham Lincoln, making it easy to admire him in the way that we're supposed to :) As for the storyline, it's not the best of plots I've ever seen, but it was far from the worst as well. The ending was really spectacular - the 3D element of the film was particularly well done there! I like the fact that despite the 'vampire' saturation going on these days, this film had its throwbacks to the original vampire genre of Dracula, not the modern-day interpretation - another thing that makes this film refreshing, and well worth a watch.Hide

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 thou!
Thanks Flicks! Glad it was't Katy Perry :)

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, vampires are just not my thing!
