Vampires and Civil War: Interesting concept, but only in 3D.

I know this movie is going to have some pretty big fans, but let me just say: I can't imagine reading this book...or seeing this movie without 3D glasses. I say this because the story is fairly slow for an action-packed film, but the action and special effects make the 3D and the extra ticket price totally worth it. If you're a horror fanatic like I am, this is not your typical vampire movie. There's little gore and nothing scary about ALVH. However, it is worth a viewing just for the concept alone. Set during the civil war, it gives a whole new theory to the enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation. Sadly, that uniqueness and the action is about all this movie provides. Most of the characters--though given a great cast that portrays them well--read pretty flat and one-dimensional. In short, if you have the money to spare and are looking to kill a couple hours with some fun action go see this movie, but don't expect it to be anything else.

Thin Premise, RICH Story!

When I heard of "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" I thought that was the most ridiculous idea ever. But when I saw the prairie rail-splitter with the axe in his hands... I BELIEVED. I bought the whole thing, hook, line and sinker. It was just so... right. I've handled many axes over the years and I have no doubt that in experienced hands they make one HELL of a weapon. There is a neat little tweak there too... I'll not let the spoiler leak but I think you will be pleasantly surprised. If you enjoy intense action films with a supernatural twist in a historic setting... you will not want to miss this one. I was thoroughly entertained for the duration of the film.

Yes, it is not historically inaccurate and it does get a little hokey at parts. That being said it was good for a Friday afternoon and we had fun watching it.

I enjoyed, was entertained and left the theater got on the phone and re-educated myself on ABE! You can skip the 3D version, it wasn't bad, but not necessary. The man said it was a lot like the book!

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is a must see movie. Please don't judge this movie from the trailer, it doesn't do it justice!! Five of us saw the movie and all five of us walked away saying it was one of the best movies we have ever seen!
