This week, we are reviewing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter trailer.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Release date June 22, 2012)
Overview from IMDB: President Lincoln's mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.
Director: Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted)
Starring: Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing), Dominic Cooper (Captain America), and Benjamin Walker (The War Boys).
The Good: I'll give novelist Seth Grahame-Smith an "A" for coming up with this concept. Hollywood jumped all over this novel when it was published in 2010 and within two years of the publication, we have ourselves a movie that's produced by Tim Burton. People love vampires and the Civil War. I consider these fans as the 'Trekkies' of the horror and history communities.
The Bad: Did you not watch the trailer? We have ANOTHER 3D movie that looks to be nothing more than a mindless plot filled with explosions and Matrix-like sequences that will appeal to teenagers who need nothing intellectually stimulating. Do I need to even get into the whole concept of Abe Lincoln as a vampire hunter?
Verdict: This movie will be Wild Wild West bad.
