See this movie! To be honest, I had low expectations for this movie. I figured it would just be a bunch of axe action scenes according to the trailer which I thought was a good enough reason to go. I went to the 2d midnight premiere just for fun. I was pleasantly surprised that this movie had good acting, good writing, and an engaging plot. There are twists that keep the story interesting and moving forward. Character development is great because it incorporates sections where he is a boy, a young man, and then the president showing his growth as a person and vampire hunter until the final climax. Furthermore, the action scenes were awesome! It uses a technique where the camera switches from slow mo to fast paced, similar to Sherlock Holmes. It works really well. It may sound like a dumb movie, but I think people should give it a try. I was very happy I went to see it.

I liked the book, and yes... It's very different from the book... I enjoyed this movie... Highly recommend... If only Abe took his axe skills out on that retarded Cullen family from Twilight, lol

I went to see this based soley on the recommendations of the Fan Reviews here on Fandango and I must say you guys were on the money. I enjoyed this tremendously. I thought the movie well acted, good plot and lots of action. The quality of this movie was completely downplayed by the title and the trailers. If you like movies about Vampires then you will love this or at least be able to appreciate it. I would NOT recommend this for anyone younger than a teenager. Small children should stay away because these vamps will give you nightmares. Seriously!

This was a fantastic surprise. I had no real expectations going in and had my socks knocked off. The reaction was like seeing Matrix the first time where you didn't know what to expect. The action scenes were incredible, the plot was good, acting was excellent and all in all this is perhaps my favorite movie of the year. To put this into context, I thought Avengers was the best movie of the year to date but now I give the nod to Vampire Hunter. Yes, it was that good.

Really cool the way that his history was merged in with his hunter personality. Highly recommend. Took my Grandchildren ages 10 and 11, no nightmares, they loved it.
