3.0 out of 5 stars Just enjoy - it's not meant to be serious, October 31, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (DVD)
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter had really, really bad reviews but I still wanted to see it and I am glad I did. This was not a film that was ever meant to be taken seriously and how could you when Abraham Lincoln and the word 'vampire' appear together in the title?! Anyway, it turned out to be hugely enjoyable and great fun. Fast paced, well acted, great action and special effects and with some lovely moments too. It works especially well because it is played absolutely straight-faced but is obviously tongue in cheek!! However, it is best viewed in 2D.

What makes it even more delicious is that there are now some totally baffled Americans out there who think it really is 'the true story of America's 16th president'!!!

I am wheedling to get it as an xmas prezzie!!

You are spot on Zanna!
Unfortunately, the internet age has given voice
to some of the most pretentious and unimaginative people
on the face of the earth, who spew their opinions as if they are
legitimate film critics, who have studied and understand film!
The one guy who said that he "wanted it to be more historically accurate"
and was therefore, disappointed....I wanted to reach through my computer
screen, through his, and choke & shake him! (-:
I want to say to him: "Dude, the movie is called "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"!!
That's a pretty good indicator that it's not going to be a History Channel-style
documentary!---Sheesh, shoot yourself already!"
Anywayz, you were absolutely right...
Don't over-analyze it, or expect it to be too serious...just take the journey & be entertained.
Next, they'll be criticizing Mary Poppins and Chitty-Chitty Bang...
Saying how that sort of thing could never happen in real life. (No ish Sherlock!)

I agree with both of you. People don't know how to sit back and just enjoy.

If you enjoyed this movie maybe you would like "The Washingtonians." It is about a cult of cannibals in a small town in Virginia who can be traced back to George Washington.

This word 'bark' used to have a different meaning than what is currently
ascribed to it, in many dictionaries. Bark, as a verb, used to refer to
"undressing" a tree - removing its fruit, its leaves, its "outer garment" -
to reveal the wood underneath - to "strip it bare". And as a noun, 'bark' referred
to the voice of a dog, whether he "yelped" or "whimpered" or "rowfed". A mute
dog would be one without a bark.

I completely agree with you and Zanna T. Laws. Right off the bat (no pun intended), anything with the title Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter should be a clue (unless you slept straight through history class) that it's NOT going to be historically accurate.

Due to the hate spewing from all the online couch critics I was not sure what to expect before viewing it but I was very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the movie very much, it's a "what if" scenario meant to fun and fun it definitely is. It's fast-paced, looks great and does everything a movie meant to be fun and entertaining should do.

I also agree everyone needs to stop taking things so seriously, stop over-analyzing everything and just enjoy themselves again.

Mr. E, I slept through history class; I love it now; but, I absolutely hated it as a kid. I got it , this was pure entertainment. I too was leery of this movie because of all the negative reviews. Glad I tuned them out and stuck to my own policy of viewing the movie myself before judging it. This movie will be added to my video library.

What a spoiler, I thought was a documentary and has an entirely new respect for Old Honest Abe.

I couldn't disagree more. I have a healthy sense of humor, love parodies, and hate political correctness, but this film dishonors us all. I entitled my own review "Why not Adolph Hitler Vampire Hunter?" "Just relax and enjoy it", yeah right. Why not a comic depiction of 9/11? Geez, and people wonder what's wrong with this country.

"this film dishonors us all"..."Why not a comic depiction of 9/11? Geez, and people wonder what's wrong with this country"
well as for your second complaint...thousands werent actually killed by Abe Lincoln. yes,there was a war,but he wasnt on the battlefield-so lets not nit pick here. Also,Abe Lincoln never attacked out country and killed civilians for other purpose than terrorism. So a wacky spin on Old Abe hardly measures up to the audacity a manga 9/11 comic. They simply arent equal

As for your first comment selected...How does this dishonor Abe? I happen to to think that if there are history-failing people out there who think this is an all new side of Mr Lincoln finally revealed-that more of a indictment of our education system. These same people probably previously thought He founded the Lincoln car company too. The only other result of this movie could be people regaining or taking a new interest in the Real life of Maybe our greatest president.

So if a wacky spin on history that sparks interest in a historical icon is whats wrong with this country...to use a lame cliche: i dont want to be right
