Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter review

If you liked Wanted, you’ll enjoy this movie from the same director, Timur Bekmambetov. What was especially noteworthy were all the fight scenes, and the kills–like in The Raid: Redemption–were all cool and refreshingly unique – all via the almighty axe. It’s what I expect and get disappointed by in every other action movie for not being able to successfully provide this crucial piece of entertainment to the movie–you know, the action–and what I applaud Timur for achieving a visually stunning style.

Notable performances: Dominic Cooper as Abraham Lincoln’s buddy, and the lovely Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) as Mary Todd Lincoln.

A serious movie, highly entertaining and looking forward to Wanted 2 moving forward, after Timur stated just a few weeks ago it’s picking up steam again without Angelina Jolie.

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

IMDb rating: 6.5
What it should be: 7.0

Consider
