Due to the numerous times I've seen this movie's trailer, I am hardly surprised by its presence on the forum.

Oh and it's ironic that 20th Century Fox are distributing it since they are also acting as the international distributors for the OTHER film concerning Abe Lincoln (Steven Spielberg's upcoming biopic of the man himself).
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

This made about $16 mil for the weekend. That's more than Jonah Hex made in its entire run, and this got better reviews. I say this because AL:VH and Jonah Hex have a lot in common. They're both fantasy-action movies set in the Civil War era, and both opened against Pixar movies. 

Since my dad wants to see this, I won't be in too much pain...

Of course. We need a report on how this movie is as soon as possible!

I've finally seen it, and it was... actually decent! For a movie about Abraham Lincoln killing vampires, the acting is good. The action scenes are good, mainly because of Timur Bekmambetov's direction. The script is a mess, but not bad enought to ruin the experience. 

My Grade: B-

Should it be Razzie-nominated for anything?

I'd say no -- There's way worse things out there. When you put it next to The Devil Inside, Battleship, One For The Money, A Thousand Words, and/or This Means War, it looks out of place.

As I've just discovered today, the premise of this movie is about to be repeated in real (or should I say 'reel') life since potential Razzie contender 'Twilight Breaking Wind Fart 2' is going head to head in the cinemas with a certain other movie (for a limited time only).

The ending scene of this movie (which was pretty much the only few minutes I liked about Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter) has gotten me so excited about Spielberg's Lincoln. I love period pieces, and I've been to Vicksburg. 

I'm wondering if it will play a role in the subject of the up-coming movie. Man, I cannot wait!

I just saw it. For your consideration:
-Worst Actor for Benjamin Walker.
-Worst Supp. Actor for Anthony Mackie (also for MAN ON A LEDGE).
-Worst New Star for Benjamin Walker.
-Worst Remake/Sequel.
-Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie.
-Worst Picture.

I won't say if it deserves Worst Screenplay until I do some research about the novel it's based on.

It should be nominated for that. Most of the changes were for the worse.
