Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) - MOVIE REVIEW

Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Starring: Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Produced by Tim Burton and Directed by the guy who did Wanted, we have ourselves a vampire movie that the vampire movie haters can enjoy. I'm one of them.

As if old Abe wasn't a great enough guy for freeing the slaves, the 2010 novel of the same name that this movie was based on, has re-written history to make this dude just a little bit more awesome. It's an enjoyable slasher (he uses an axe!) with some decent acting and a storyline that manages to stick to certain historical accuracies but in the end is just a down right fun thing to watch for a couple hours.

Nothing special, but fun. A lot of fun. Some great fight scenes... including an epic one on horses (no, not like your're picturing either)
