I had watched this with very low expectations, the trailers made it look really bad and also it had alot of negative reviews. However, to me it looked simply entertaining. That it is exactly what it was. Of course, Abrham Lincoln was never a Vampire Slayer or was he? It is very hard to describe this film. It is very dark, has a very serious storyline. The best description I can give it is Being Human meets Buffy the vampire slayer. It has a very strong storyline following all the way through the movie. The actor who played Abrham Lincoln does a very good job. What I like about this movie, this movie whilst it is fantasy has paid and given a lot of attention to detail. All action scenes are well choreographed. It is an entertainer, not a movie that can be taken seriously. It is what is known as a popcorn movie. If you buy this on blu-ray the high definition is really promising stuff. I also recommend Abrham Lincoln Vs Zombies.

Watched this with low expectations due to the amount of negative reviews - I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a real kickass action picture that looked gorgeous and had blood spattering across the screen what felt like every two minutes. Watching Abraham Lincoln spinning his silver tipped axe like a baton was mesmerising.
The film is beautifully shot, well acted and has some seriously badass vampires, no Twilight beautiful creatures here. When the vampires attack their faces contort into evil looking beasts.
The action scenes are terrific with special mention going to the scene with the horse stampede, not going to ruin it for you but take it from me, it was stunning.
The film doesn't outstay its welcome at 100 minutes either - me and my youngest thoroughly enjoyed it, absolutely bonkers and incredibly violent though it was - more please!
