I guess this movie is yet more proof of #1 in the above article.
Eh?
Bad science fiction maybe.
But none of these apply to good works. Well, maybe #2 minus the reluctant part in some cases for older works.
How does this movie (and #1) have anything to do with scifi? That's a B-movie atribute and this is a B-movie hommage.

.... this isn't "science fiction" by any definition of the term I know. Supernatural alternative history?

So long as the movie fulfils the criteria, "Fun", it doesn't really matter what genre it belongs to.

Cheers.

Fallen souls and fearsome fiends were his to take
with fulsome swings of blessed axe
Yet fell he to single bullet
when life's mortal blood was at stake

It is odd how completely stupid, ridiculous ideas can actually seem cool with a little movie magic.

Tim Burton film? Abe was always my fave president. I might go see it. He would be badass. XD

it would really make my day if one of the vamps he kills had the last name of 'Cullen'. >=)

Just watched this tonight.

My verdict? It's rip-roaring good fun.

Definitely not one for the history purists but, good gracious, what an inventive way to reimagine American Civil War history, making it a battle not just to "free" a nation but also to ensure that the living would forever prevail over the dead.

My only complaint? That the slo-mo action scenes were poorly filmed, despite being lavishly choreographed.

The movie makes me want to really break out a vampire-slaying deck in the current block of playing cards in Magic the Gathering.

It's somewhat sad how the ad for the book is more exciting than the movie.

It's even more sad that i liked the Asylum's mockbuster "Abraham Lincoln vs zombies" more than this movie.
