I know the warning gets more and more obvious every time it's spoken, but don't go to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter expecting (A) the Book or (B) your favorite scenes from the book. The story is dramatically abridged, naturally, and in many cases it is changed fairly radically from the book.
That said, the movie was a ton of fun, and I highly recommend going to see it.

The only reason I went to see this movie was because I wanted to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead's butt in 3D. There was no booty shot. Not even once. I'm pretty ticked off to be honest. There was a scene where you see a little bit of ankle and I was like HAWT. Do not go see this movie if you are expecting a great shot of Mary's butt. You will leave feeling incomplete, like me. Other than that the movie was pretty ok.

I'm a big fan of Vampire Movies, if done right, and really wanted to see this because of the previews, although I wasnt expecting nothing over the top, the action scenes in the previews looked good. I was wrong, the movie itself had a really good story, the way they rewrote the history around Abe Lincoln, his family, the civil war, and tied it all into Vampires at that time, to me it took alot of thought, and made a really good story to go along with the good vampire fighting scenes, and characters that grow on you and you really begin to like. I seen this with my wife, and even she found this movie well worth seeing, and she isnt really one for these kind of movies. I have not read the book, so based on seeing the movie onlin, if your looking for a good "Blade" type action vampire movie, with a really good story wrapped around it, then go see this, as I'd give it 3 out of 4 stars myself. Thanks and hope you found my review helpful. Enjoy :)

This was just a silly, silly movie. The closest it came to serious was Rufus Sewell's portrayal of Adam, the vampire patriarch. It was, however, entertaining.

I went into this movie completely blind, lured only by the fact that it looked like a mythical action movie. It turned out to be one of the best films I've seen this year. It takes itself just as seriously as it needs to, the action is great, the cg is well done and the characters are actually fleshed out well enough that you care a little.
