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
Cool combination of historic events and fantasy to create a credible story. Action is very good and the special effects makes the movie exciting. Ben Walker does a great job recreating the most loved president in American history. Highly Recommended.
What a surprise! A new, intellectual, vampire movie with new twists on an old plot, very well written, great special effects, though the actors are not household names, they will be. Had to give between 4 and 5, had to be 5 stars! Who knew?
SUPER SURPRISED! Did not really know what to expect....was NOT disappointed! FUN TO WATCH! Imaginative, modern special effects! Epitomizes what a FICTIONAL action storyline should be! Exceptional example of a vampire movie, with 'fang'tastic creature effects &amp;amp;amp; make-up! Opening lags a bit, but worth the patience. The violence is balanced; gruesome without being completely gratuitous. The comradery will leave you wanting more to watch!!!
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!
