Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Many 2012 genre movies have developed a worrisome postmodern tic, often rushing to point out their own ridiculousness before the audience even gets a chance to get swept up and taken in. The historical monster mash Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is profoundly silly--even sillier, possibly, than the title suggests--but it conducts itself with an admirably straight face. Seth Grahame-Smith's script (based on his own novel) finds the Young Mr. Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) set on a path of righteous vengeance after watching his mother get fatally fanged. As he studies the law and woos the ravishing Mary Todd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) by day, the nights find him throwing down with an unending army of the undead. When he discovers the plot of a master vampire (the excellently dry Rufus Sewell) to conquer the United States, he makes the fateful decision to throw his hat (and silver-bladed axe) into the ring of national politics. Director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, the Night Watch series) brings a wide-eyed fervour to the material, offering tantalising hints of a larger mythology while also glorying in the wonky kineticism of the plentiful action sequences. (He's aided in his mission by legendary cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, who gives the images an old-timey View-Master texture.) Scholars of the historical record may well develop the vapours, but for susceptible viewers, the film's wink-free approach and exceedingly game performers make it frightfully easy to sit back, switch off, and bask in its poker-faced outrageousness. Many movies have had somebody thrown by a horse; this movie has a bad guy pick up a horse and throw it at the hero. Brothers and sisters, there is a difference. --Andrew Wright

3.0 out of 5 stars An odd hybrid... 21 Mar 2013
By Benminx
Format:DVD
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is an odd mixture. From mayhem specialist Bekmambetov, I was expecting a silly but fun action drama set during Lincoln's youth. What I didn't expect was this decades-spanning effort which makes the odd decision to blend silly supernatural hijinks with serious historical fact - like crossing 'Buffy' with a historical biopic.
While it adds a distinct flavour of the unusual and gives the film some individuality, it also slows things down and grants it an odd, occasionally inappropriate feeling of mocking deadly serious historical events.
However, as the lead Benjamin Walker is capable, if a little bland. Dominic Cooper outshines him for charisma by a New York mile, and Rufus Sewell is deliciously evil as his vampiric nemesis.
The action is frequent, although oddly unimpressive in several scenes. However, the initial confrontation with a vampire, a visually extraordinary horseback pursuit, and an early face-off between the arch enemies are extremely impressive. While not as flat as similarly toned historical supernatural actioner 'Jonah Hex', and no classic, this is still a fun, and occasionally very cleverly written and entertaining film. Worth a watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment! 23 Dec 2012
By FJY
Format:DVD
I have just watched this film. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it is very entertaining and full of action, from start to finish. OK, so it may not be very historically accurate and some liberties are taken with that, but the constant action more than compensates for that. It is reasonably violent and very gory, so young children should not be allowed to watch this film. The acting was generally very good and it flowed very well and did not drag at all. A lot of the action is produced with the help of a lot of CGI, but it was done very well and did not really look fake at all. I did not manage to see this film at the cinema, which I regret, but I am glad that I caught it on DVD. Four stars from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 5 Jan 2013
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Firstly I don't care if this film is historically accurate...anyone who goes to see a film with 'Vampire Hunter' in the title expecting historical accuracy is an idiot in my opinion.
This is a great, absorbing, action-horror with some very clever interweaving of established historical facts. I found the entire film to be excellent entertainment from start to finish. I watched the 3D blu-ray and I can say that I was very impressed with the 3D - there's very little in the way of ghosting and the amount of depth perception is impressive. Thankfully, the director never goes for the 'Oooh, that's 3D' shot of things awkwardly being thrust towards the screen; instead favouring the technique of staging shots with a lot of fore, middle and background detail - although I will say that the burning embers during the train sequence really did seem to 'come out of the screen'.
All performances are strong, but of special note is Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who manages to make Mary Todd Lincoln a very sympathetic and rounded character despite her limited screen time - most notably during her breakdown when she slaps at Lincoln.
The vampires are, thankfully, of the horrific scary variety rather than the beautiful, glittery type and this film benefits greatly for that. Masses of teeth and bad skin are the norm for these vamps and I found them a joy to watch.
Having watched the film twice in as many days I can honestly say it's a really great piece of escapism and one to watch many time over. Is it going to tax your brain? Probably not; but it should entertain thoroughly!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-made gore fest 11 Dec 2012
By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When young Abraham Lincoln angers a man (who happens to a vampire), the man takes his revenge by killing the boy's mother. Lincoln then dedicates his life to finding vampires and killing them with his silver-tipped ax.

I really enjoyed this movie. Yes, it's horrifically gory at times, but the clever mix of fantasy and true events is very well done and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. We follow Lincoln from store clerk to the White House. The movie isn't playing for laughs, it's utterly serious. I actually found it more entertaining than Daniel Day-Lewis' "Lincoln."

The title had me expecting a cheesy, low-budget slasher, but the production values are high and the special effects are excellent. The acting is also very good; Benjamin Walker plays a convincing Lincoln and Rufus Sewell is truly menacing as his nemesis.

This is a surprising, clever story that includes just enough historical facts to make it almost plausible. A lot of blood, but still recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as much fun as the title promises 19 Mar 2014
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Those bemoaning the death of films aimed at grownups were curiously silent over the fact that of 2012’s two films about Abraham Lincoln, it was the one about the political horse trading and infighting over the Thirteenth Amendment that excited audiences and pulled in the big bucks while the special effects-fuelled high concept supernatural action movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter crashed and burned. It’s one of the less surprising would-be blockbuster flops of recent years, though, taking an anarchic premise – that the Father of the Nation waged a lifelong acrobatic axe-wielding war against the living dead who used the southern slave trade as a cheap food supply – and treating it in such a po-faced fashion that there wasn’t nearly as much fun as the title promised, with moments like Rufus Sewell’s vampire master kicking Lincoln in the nuts few and far between.

What the film does offer is a surprising amount of spectacle, with Gettysburg being fought with Confederate vampires, and plenty of action, be it Honest Abe jumping from horse to horse in a stampeding herd in pursuit of the vampire who killed his mother or a rip-roaring climax aboard a runaway train besieged by the undead on a burning bridge. There’s some imagination in the despatching of its revenants and its reimagination of the causes of the Civil War, with director Timur Bemambetov getting an awful long of bang for his surprisingly modest buck while having fun with outlandish swooping camera moves and Benjamin Walker more convincing as the older president than the earnest young law student with a grudge and a silver-plated axe (Walker bearing an uncanny resemblance to a young Liam Neeson, who was originally lined up to star in Spielberg’s film), but it remains an okay timefiller rather than a future cult classic.

The Blu-ray offers a decent 2.40:1 widescreen transfer and extras package - 75-minute making of xdocumentary, motion comic prequel, music video and writer's audio commentary.
