Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter 

I got a pair of invitation to the exclusive premiere of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter just now. So now I would like to share the review of the movie with you guys.

Anyway, just in case you guys have not heard about this movie before. This movie is based on the popular novel of the same title by Seth Grahame-Smith. The whole plot of the story is basically revolving around the famous 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. But it involves a fantasy-like fictional story line. So, what you will see in this movie may not be appropriately true with the history of United States.  

The story began with young Abraham Lincoln and his parents working as slaves for a guy called Jack Barts. Due to a conflict between Lincoln and Jack Barts, Abraham's mother was killed by Jack Barts via a strange method. Jack Barts was later revealed to be a vampire. In an incident, Abraham was trying to kill this vampire to take revenge for his mother's death. However, his plan was backfired and he was nearly killed by the vampire. A mysterious guy appeared and saved his life.  In order to gain enough strength and abilities, Abraham Lincoln requested for a training under that mysterious guy whose name is Henry. Henry trained Abraham enough for him to become a vampire hunter. Later, Abraham was assigned by Henry to kill a few vampires before he can take his revenge on the vampire who has killed his mother. The story then progresses with non-stop axe-wielding action and a lot of blood. I mean..REALLY a lot of blood.  The movie then also showed how Abraham Lincoln eventually became the President. 

I won't tell more about the story because I don't want to spoil the fun. However, what I can comment is that the movie is really action-packed and its visual is cool & stylish. It has reminded me of "Wanted" the movie. 

What I like about the movie?
1) There's a lot of actions, almost non-stop from when he started to hunt vampires till the end of the movie.
2) Cool stylish scenes with a lot of slow-motion effects.
3) Fast paced movie.
4) Nice make-up in Abraham Lincoln's appearance, especially the part when he has already become the President. He looks almost identical to the real Abraham Lincoln!

What I dislike about the movie?
1) Some scenes are seem to be disjointed and do not link well. Plus, some of the scenes may look a bit silly.
2) Lacking of strong plots. 

Additional point:
May not be suitable for minors due to excessive amount of blood spilling scenes.


My partner reviewer Josephine Yap said,
" It's a marvellous action thrilling movie!" 
giving a score of 7/10.

My opinion,
"It's definitely one of the most action packed movie this year! If you love "Wanted" the movie style of visual effects, you will love this movie!"
I give a score of 8/10 because I am an action movie fans.

So overall from us, review score is:
                              7.5/ 10.0 stars
