Abraham Lincoln is reinvented as a vampire-killing president in this Timur Bekmambetov-directed action picture starring Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rufus Sewell, and Dominic Cooper. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author Seth Grahame-Smith adapts his own book for 20th Century Fox. Tim Burton produces alongside Bekmambetov and Jim Lemley. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
If you enjoy the weird and unexpected twist on History being re-written, then this movie is for you. Take a Historical figure, President Lincoln. Take History, slavery and the civil war. Now throw Vampires into the mix and then you have to ask yourself, Can you handle the truth? Well the truth as told in this movie anyway. A combination of reality, historical facts and a mega dose of fantasy laden evil and you have one really messed up history lesson. This is Twilight on Steroids to the tenth power.
My family which includes 3 teens WE loved this movie. We were NOT expecting this to be about history, and politics, and so we were not let down. This was an action packed thrilling movie packed with plenty of "WHOA" moments. We ended the movie appreciating the irony in the movie and thinking a lot of "what if" questions. This was a great action movie!
