Unfortunately, this movie isn't half as fun as we'd imagined...

Gloriously AbsurdBy a customer , 03 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I liked it personally even if it is conceptually daft and won't exactly win Oscars as Speilberg's biopic of the real man probably will. Not as if Abraham Lincoln hasn't been used in weird and wonderful ways before. See 'The Savage Curtain' episode of the original Star Trek.

a little far fetched but good entertainmentBy haylesbaylespigstales (130 reviews) from Fleetwood , 19 May 2013I really enjoyed this film, it does what it says on the tin & is in parts a little silly but hey its entertainment in whichever form it comes.
was supposed to see this at the pictures but missed it, think it would have been better on the big screen
Silly but entertainingBy GlasgowChris78 (26 reviews) from Kent, England , 18 May 2013The idea is a bit daft and I suspect the only reason the writer chose to use Abraham Lincoln as the titular character was to give the alternate history aspect some credence. That being said, it is a decent piece of entertainment. There are certainly much worse rooms in the vast house of vampire.
Doesn't work for me!By Lizzylou (22 reviews) from Kilgetty , 15 May 2013Couldn't get to grips with this film at all. Wondered why they bothered to make it to be honest, maybe they thought putting Abraham Lincoln as the main character might pull in the viewers, didn't work for me!
Silly Wasteful FilmBy MrGiles2 (62 reviews) from Middlesbrough , 09 May 2013After a bright start, this rather silly, pointless film distintergrated into a special effects farce. I just could not believe I was actually watching this film. Alright, some of the action sequences were quite well done, but after one such sequence, you then sit back beggaring belief as the great man himself delivers his famous address at Gettysburg. I think the movie makers were taking the mickey here. If you fancy watching a silly pointless special effects farce after a couple of bottles of wine or beer, then this is for you. Serious film watchers, avoid like the plague.
Awful. Truly awful.By timikiwi (3 reviews) , 03 May 2013Started promisingly, yet turned in to a truly woeful affair. So bad that I can't actually be bothered to spend time picking at the many many awful bits. Don't waste your time with this one.
