REEL DEAL: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter REVIEW

As I thought that vampire movies would be boring because  of the same plot every time, but rule out this new flick by Timur Bekmambetov (The Darkest Hour) from the novel made by Seth Grahame-Smith, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is something that brings the best elements with no sparkling vampires.

Although this not what history is, but incorporates American history with emphasis not only on vampires but also the historical events that shaped the union. Honest Abe is not just a smart layer and to-be-president. It also have the simple yet fun love story on how he met his wife (of course he is married according to the history books!). But the best thing about this is how Abe becomes a ass-kicking badass vampire-killing President of the United States. 

 Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter looks also great in 3D with details that makes the movie  a great thriller. It was also very effective as I heard high screams among the audience. Well I almost peed my pants and my heart just gone crazy with the action.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is distributed by 20th Century Fox Philippines and Warner Bros Philippines. Showing in Theaters July 4.

Deliberation time kids!
