Serious play on a historical figure doing unnatural things

Not much to say, if you like vampire movies and ones about maturing into the hero, this is good. A similar character progression like in Wanted with the film style and action of 300. Only two sexual reference scenes and the R rating is from the blood, dismemberment, and mature themes. My teenager enjoyed it.

Couldn't take it seriously....

This movie was totally over the top. If you're looking for plot-less sumer-time amusement, you're looking at the right movie. Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but definitely not good cinema. My boyfriend and I laughed through most of the "serious" parts. There were only about 2 scenes that made the 3D worth it, so probably for your money you should just see it in traditional format.

Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

The premise is ridiculous, of course. But the movie is a hoot! All you have to do is suspend belief and want to be entertained, without intervening social or political messages, and you will love this movie. Actual history is woven into a CGI masterpiece. Go see it!

Wait for Rental

Although stylistically solid with great action sequences, overall this "high concept" film was a bit too silly at times to be considered great. It takes an overwhelming large amount concentration to keep up your suspension of disbelief or else it becomes just plain ridiculous. This requires the a lot of focus and dedication from the viewer. Overall, probably better as a DVD rental than a movie theater because alcohol probably could make that suspension requirement easier to maintain than soda and popcorn.

I read the book before I went to this movie. The book was blah, and I wasn't going to go see the movie, but I thought.. what could it hurt? So, I did. The only things in common between the book and the movie = character names, basic plot idea. The movie was dramatic at times, but shallow. The special effects were cool. I have to say the theater must have thought this would flop because it only has 3 running times on opening weekend. But overall I'd say go watch this movie when you have nothing else to do. And, if you don't have much money, it's ok to wait for this one to come out and rent - you wouldn't be missing much.
