I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Last weekend, The Husband and I went to see this movie, but it was sold out….three weeks after opening. good sign.

Then, a friend told me that her husband read the book and found the movie disappointing. bad sign.

I still imagined I would enjoy Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I had low expectations….like when I saw Snakes on a Plane, and all I really wanted was to see some snakes. on a plane. So, that movie was great for what it was…which to recap, was snakes. on a plane. Likewise, I thought, hey, it’s not going to be Braveheart, but if I see Abraham Lincoln and he’s hunts vampires, it’ll be a fine movie…keeping in mind that I like vampire movies quite a bit more than I like movies about either snakes or planes.

I could not have been more wrong. I loved this movie. Benjamin Walker was an ax-wielding badass. Dominic Cooper was likable. Rufus Sewell was convincing as always. I enjoyed the story, the action, and the ending. Suspending your belief in physics for the duration of the film is a good idea, but if you’re already watching a vampire movie, you should be halfway there.

Disclaimer: There’s a better than average chance that you won’t enjoy this film as much as I did because my movie requirements are: good-looking actors, action or romance or a moving story, and a happy ending.

…and AFTER you’ve seen the movie, and you’re wondering something about the last scene, you should click this link. You’re welcome.

    Well now I gotta see it.

    And it doesn’t strike me as one I’d normally run to but you’re the 2nd person to say how good it is.

    And well, I do have the same requirements as you. =)
