Time Waits For No Man,
This review is from: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter [DVD] (DVD)
If you go to see this movie with the expectations of an accurate portrayal of Abraham Lincoln's life/presidency, re-read the title of the movie, kindly slap yourself and then save yourself some coin. If you're going into this expecting a two-hour action film with more than enough axe-twirling, vampire-killing shenanigans AND you can take some historical inaccuracy on the chin, then I highly recommend this movie.
The movie is fast-paced, full of gore, packed with jump-scares and edge-of-your-seat fight sequences. It does not take itself too seriously, and neither should you. Go admire the cinematography, the CGI effects, the acting talent, and just enjoy yourself. Not the perfect action film - some characters were a little too shallow for me. The feel of the movie however was great, and the social-commentary is cleverly tied in with the film's plot.
Four stars. ****

I find it curious that many people felt this film was historically inaccurate. Abraham Lincoln's mother was killed in mysterious circumstances and many people at the time believed that she was killed by vampires. Many more enlightened people are now seriously considering that vampires do exist, see www.Vampirewebsite.net. Many aspects of Abraham Lincoln's life were shrouded in mystery and it was speculated but never proved that at night he was a crime fighting vigilante. Under the circumstances I think the film offers a wise socio-historical commentary.
