Rate this:
As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln watched his mother Nancy (Robin McLeavy) suffer an agonizing death following a midnight encounter with malevolent bloodsucker Jack Barts (Martin Csokas). Nine years later, a vengeful Lincoln (played as an adult by Benjamin Walker) attempts to vanquish Barts and has his first terrifying encounter with the creatures of the night. Fortunately for the future of the nation, the would-be assassin is saved by determined vampire hunter Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper) at the last possible moment, and he lives on to perfect his vampire-slaying skills under his rescuer. Flash forward to 1837, as Lincoln arrives in Springfield, IL, and quickly lands a job as a shopkeeper under Joshua Speed (Jimmi Simpson), while also dividing his personal time between studying law and slaughtering vampires. Shortly after falling under the spell of beautiful Mary Todd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Lincoln has a belated reunion with his childhood friend Will Johnson (Anthony Mackie), who reinvigorates his passion to fight for freedom. But a war is coming, and immortal plantation owner Adam (Rufus Sewell) is determined to use it as a means of gaining the upper hand against mankind. Years later, as the 16th president of the United States, Lincoln is joined by his old friends in a last-ditch effort to save not just the Union, but the very future of humanity.

Seriously people... What were you expecting?

Well, darlings - Whoever thought of turning Abraham Lincoln into a vampire hunter must have been a total idiot. And this movie proves it.

This was just a hoot. Action packed and heart pounding. Total escapism at its finest. However, I would imagine there are a few Americans who will not like the portrayal of Lincoln or the south. For escapism; great movie.

As much silly fun as any Marvel /DC / space opera offering lately, I really enjoyed this. Lots of action, bit of comedy, bit of romance and bromance, bit of history and morality, just all-around entertaining. Perfect if you're looking to escape, I highly recommend this if you are sick or depressed.

I have not read the novel on which it is based, but I know for sure this movie should not have been made.
