Critic Reviews

  • Bruce Diones, New Yorker
    The violence quickly becomes numbing, and Benjamin Walker plays Lincoln without the sense of irony needed to keep the historical and supernatural sides of the story consistently entertaining.
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
    The movie plays safe by cutting every theme down the middle - a swing that's effective when splitting wood or vampire skulls, but dull when applied to filmmaking.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
    Of course it's ridiculous and tasteless and grotesque. It's ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER.
  • Ricardo Baca, Denver Post
    The disconnect between intention and final product is a head scratcher.
  • Eric D. Snider, Film.com
    Bekmambetov doesn't expect us to take the premise seriously, exactly. But he doesn't seem to want us to laugh at it, either.
  • Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
    Bekmambetov ... stages hilarious, imaginative, almost free-form action sequences like nobody in the business.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    A B movie treated like an A movie that mostly ends up being a zzzzzzzzzz movie.
  • Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
    This film should be campy fun, but in Bekmambetov's unsteady hands, it feels laboured and unsatisfying.
  • James Adams, Globe and Mail
    The trouble with the so-called high-concept film is that too often the concept is the best thing about it and the actual movie essentially a series of rather rote, progressively more tiresome variations on its premise.
  • Rafer Guzman, Newsday
    Not just a letdown but an absolute disaster.
