2012 - ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER, another film in the Lincoln screen trilogy

This first film to be released based on the life of Abraham Lincoln in 2012.  Putting it mildly, this is a very different take on Lincoln's life than the Spielberg film.

It seems that Lincoln along with being a politician is also a vampire hunter.  Apparently the South is loaded with vampires and they are using slaves as food.  Lincoln comes to the rescue using his resources as President and slayer of the undead. 

Vampire chicks always wear tight outfits.

The film took a beating from the critics with the primary emphasis being that this story line was taken extremely seriously by the director (whose name I do not wish to type) and the producer Tim Burton.  Got to say they were right on this one.  The seriousness which runs throughout the film is a little absurd, after all this is a film about vampires.

Let's get this out of the way.  This is a typical summer film, too much computer faked imagery, too many absurd slow motion action scenes and just too dumb.

105 minutes.
