This was absolutely an awesome movie! Loved the way that history was intertwined into a superhero type of movie. Ben was absolutely perfect as Abraham Lincoln and I LOVED the fight sequences. Well worth it to go see. Just wish the audio had been better.

The title says it all. This movie basically only sticks with the premise of the book and wings it from there. It's your typical action flick with a disjointed story. Don't expect much more and you may enjoy this movie, especially if you are already into the Vampire fad. Obviously, don't go if you are looking for any historical accuracy. Though history buffs will be able to hear enough familiar names and still laugh at some of the more ridiculous aspects of this movie, like Mary Todd Lincoln fighting at Gettysburg and all Confederate soldiers being glasses wearing Vampires. Anyway, in the end, stuff blows up and heads get lobbed off. Nuff said.

This was a good movie...very interesting...not sure if the book was really based on actual journals given by henry sturges to the writer, or if it's all fictional. If it's fictional then it's a little lame, but if not, it's a very interesting story. I havent read the book but the movie itself, was done pretty decently. It is historically accurate, except of course making the civil war all about the stopping of vampiric take over of the US and slavery of all. The movie itself, is pretty good with very good representation of lincoln's time, and also the incorporation of other historical figures of the time. The portrayal of lincoln was good too as not just a hero and president but some courageous man of strengh. The depiction of the vampires was a little over the top but still ok. Overall, it is a movie definitely worth going to, very entertaining and makes you look at lincoln in in a different light or really in any at all. It more or less gives homage to lincoln himself.
