Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The movie plays safe by cutting every theme down the middle - a swing that's effective when splitting wood or vampire skulls, but dull when applied to filmmaking.
Rotten: The violence quickly becomes numbing, and Benjamin Walker plays Lincoln without the sense of irony needed to keep the historical and supernatural sides of the story consistently entertaining.
Rotten: Not just a letdown but an absolute disaster.
Rotten: Don't let the stupid title dissuade you from seeing "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." Let the stupid plot, the stupid history, the stupid action scenes, the stupid trivializing of slavery . . .

A lot of people don't understand that this film is satire. I mean, come on people, the movie is called Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter! I find it kind of sad that people are dumb enough now adays to actually think this is a serious film.
Is it like the book? Well, no. However this is probably for the better. This isn't to say that the book was bad, no, it was actually fantastic. However, it was written in the style of a text book, and the only real way to tackle it was to take the Oliver Stone approach, taking ideas from the facts, and adding fiction (or in this case adding new fiction appon preestablished fiction) to make it work better for film
The film is overall very fast paced and incredibly entertaining, what you'd expect from the title of the film. It acomplishes what it tries to, and very well, at that. Any considering watching it will probably enjoy it if they can seperate it from the source material.
