The deal for me was, I went to see the Snow White movie with my wife on her birthday and she was to see Abe Lincoln movie with me on mine.. well for what its worth I found AL:VH to be much more entertaining than Snow White. I really liked the actor they found to play the part. All kinds of stylitic scenes, the story was a bit slapped together, I think they could have found slightly richer storyline but it was entertaining enough to check out in theatre (usually I wait for HD at home). The supporting character "Henry", was fun but his story arch could have been little more powerful. If you are into cult-like characters, with some bad-***axe swinging, youll like this movie. If you are a drab sensitive kind, then you should go see "Brave" instead. I don't take the historical portion of the story quite so serious, I mean the title should give away what you are getting into. Perhaps next time Ill take a guy-friend instead of the wife. Definitley better than Snow White.

You just have to go with it and enjoy the moment. They do cut to the chase rather fast, my teenage son thought it was the best movie ever. Its fun, shockingly bad fun

Went to see this with my husband on our date night. He isn't a huge fan of vampires but also enjoyed this movie. Very entertaining!!!! Going back to see it with my son (11) so good, I loved this movie.

I have no problem with the premise or the plot of the movie, but the execution was waning in the moments towards the end of the film. It's almost like they hit a wall with the writing and couldn't figure out a way to finish, when the Abraham Lincoln story clearly has a finish line. The pace is really fast, highly entertaining but it's a B-movie at best with high production costs. If you like to laugh at campy, Matrix-like scenes, go see it! Otherwise save your $10-$15.

This movie is very good if you forget you're watching Abraham Lincoln. It's kinda like how "Miami Vice" was a decent movie if you forgot it was supposed to be about Miami Vice and its characters.
A movie about a 19th-century vampire hunter is pretty cool. A movie that suggests that Abraham Lincoln had to jump from a flaming train while the tracks were held together by his vampire buddy is just too much for me. I guess I can't fully enjoy such tales that put a fun twist on actual history.
If you can forget all that stuff and revel in the possibility of an alternate history, this movie is pretty enjoyable. Not Oscar-worthy, but enjoyable.
