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.

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 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!

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 13 Feb 2013
By Hilts
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Some good graphics, and scenery, but the story line and flow is very poor.
At the end of it, I thought - what was the point behind that.
Watch it and make up your own mind.
Bought this one for the ultraviolet so that I could download it and watch it on my kindle fire - that bit was fine, but I've deleted it now because its not a film I would watch more than once.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD BUT DISAPPOINTING COMPARED TO THE NOVEL! 9 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Young Abraham Lincoln lives with his parents in a log cabin. When his father falls into heavy debt with strict employer Jack Barts (MARTON CSOKAS), Abraham spies Jack biting his mother on the wrist one night. She falls seriously ill and soon dies. Abraham, although still very young, vows vengeance on the evil man who killed his mother.

Almost a decade later, Abraham (BENJAMIN WALKER) has his chance and seeks out Barts with the aid of a pistol. In a brief battle which almost costs his life, Abraham realises he is no match for the superhuman Barts and is only saved when a mysterious stranger, Henry Sturges (DOMONIC COOPER), intervenes.

Over the next few months Henry nurses Abraham back to full health and teaches him how to fight Vampires, for that is what Barts has become, and he learns how to expertly use an axe. Then Henry sends out his new student on a mission to destroy a known Vampire.

As time passes Abraham becomes a successful hunter and in the daytime learns law studies. He meets and marries Mary Todd (MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD) but leaves her in the dark about his double life. With the aid of childhood friend William Johnson (ANTHONY MACKIE) and store owner Joshua Speed (JIMMI SIMPSON), Abraham realises the Vampire problem is bigger than anyone suspected, for the creatures are in every walk of life and often highly influential like southern businessman Adam (RUFUS SEWELL).

Abraham Lincoln is known as the American President who guided the nation through its Civil War only to be assassinated at the theatre soon after. His secret double life, that of Vampire slayer, is the premise of the film.

I was a big fan of the successful ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER novel by SETH GRAHAME-SMITH.
