Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) English Movie Review Aggregator
‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’, is an action fantasy horror film based on the 2010 mashup novel of the same name. The film has been directed and co-produced by Timur Bekmambetov, along with Tim Burton. The novel’s author, Seth Grahame-Smith, wrote the adapted screenplay, and Benjamin Walker stars as the title character. It has been released in the Indian subcontinent, and reviews range from good to average.
DNA India says it could have been much more: “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter doesn’t manage to be entirely serious, delightfully ludicrous or downright scary, but it is fairly action-packed and brilliantly shot .
Hindustan Times calls it fairly engaging: “Fairly engaging, the high-concept movie is remarkable especially for its set designs, costumes and tempo of story-telling. Walker makes for a convincing young Lincoln and is supported ably by Dominic Cooper. It might help if you suspend your sense of disbelief, though, to thrill to the notion of a President who wages the kind of deadly war associated with Hollywood super-heroes like Batman and Spiderman.”
The Times of India thinks the film is a whole lot of fun: “Abraham Lincoln would have surely had a good laugh after seeing this one. You, on the other hand, will surely have fun while watching the movie. And that’s because this wicked period tale keeps your mind busy all throughout — you find it really hard to distinguish fact from fiction. “
