Day #26: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

Plot:  To avenge his mother’s death, a young Abraham Lincoln trains in the arts of vampire hunting.

This movie is called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  I didn’t expect much.  As long as Lincoln made mincemeat of some vamps, I’d consider myself satisfied.  Well, I must say I was pleasantly surprised.  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is essentially an action movie that revolves around vampires.  As Lincoln ascends to the Presidency of the United States, he learns vampires are plotting a continental takeover by helping the South during the Civil War.  It’s up to Lincoln and his years of training to stop this looming force.  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is completely absurd, but that’s exactly what it should be.  The action scenes are well choreographed and the sets look quite beautiful (though many of them are clearly computer generated).  If you go into this movie with expectations of horror, you will be sorely disappointed.  If you go into this movie with hopes of watching our 16th President butcher vampires with a silver-lined axe, I think you’ll have a hell of a time.
