If you enjoy vampires being the bad guys, go see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. The movie was a bloody treat. The president that was called Honest Abe was anything but honest. He lied to everybody about being a vampire hunter and he lost a lot that he valued most because he killed vampires. If you want a movie with rare action, go see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
Out of five stars I gave Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter:
Like the book, Abraham Lincoln’s mother dies by a vampire and he dedicates his whole life on making sure every vampire is killed. Even though the book and the movie have the same general idea, the movie was much different from the book. If you read Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith, you would be like me in the movie theater watching and thinking that some scenes that were in the book didn’t happen in the movie, or they definitely changed other scenes. Even though the movie was not like the book, it was still enjoyable. If you didn’t read the book, you’ll think it is an action packed thrill ride. It made you feel like you was a part of the action and history that took place during that time period. You start to root for Lincoln and his sidekicks while watching this film.
The special effects that were added to the movie were also good. The vampires in the movie aren’t the same vampires we see in Twilight and Vampire Diaries. These vampires didn’t have fangs on two teeth alone, but had a whole mouth full of them. They look more like shark teeth. They were far scarier.
The movie had great action but the storyline was off. I believe the movie would have been great if it followed the book’s storyline. Instead of having all action packed scenes, they should have added some scenes about the history of Abe Lincoln. Overall, this movie is acceptable enough for book fans and new fans.
