Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D (15)

Reviewed by Rachel Geeson

Score: 2.5/5

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of one of America’s greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln, and the untold story that shaped the nation.

Abraham Lincoln, played by Benjamin Walker, vows to kill all vampires after witnessing a vampire murder his mother when he was just a little boy. As an adult Lincoln tracks down the vampire and tries to take vengeance however he fails and is almost killed, until Henry Sturges, played by Dominic Cooper saves him, and becomes his mentor in vampire hunting.

Benjamin Walker (who looks like a young Liam Neeson) plays our heroic president and fits into the character well. Towards the end of the film he really looks the part appearing as a Van Helsing figure. There are a number of other actors in film who stand out as well such as Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winsted (Lincoln’s wife), Anthony Mackie (Lincoln’s childhood friend) and Rufus Sewell (the leader of an order of vampires).

The action fantasy horror film is brought to our screens by director Timur Bekmanbetov and the much loved Tim Burton as the producer. The pair worked together to create the big-screen version of the adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel.

The film does have some rough edges to it such as the scene when Lincoln has a fight with a vampire involving horses which was well . . . interesting. Also the 3D cinematography didn’t really grab my attention and seemed to be a bit of a waste of time.

Saying that; there is some built up emotion in the film, as the audience get to know Lincoln’s past and follow him on his journey to get his revenge against the vampires. So why don’t you check this movie out, to see if you agree with my opinion.
