The title character did accomplish a grand feat in both the original historical account and this new Hollywood version, but the "new" character is not so warm and righteous as we remember from history. The title character is joined in the movie by some recognizable friends. The movie portrayed the sad death of many many people, so wouldn't recommend this movie to be watched with the kids or with a date. The "Bad Guy" in the movie had mysterious and dark powers, and surprisingly, the good guy had help from similar mysterious powers.
It would be a shame if Hollywood's historical revisionism caused some to rethink their understanding of how the story goes, but you never know with people these days. People will believe a lot of crazy things.
So has anyone else seen Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter? On a related note, there's another movie out now in theaters that appears to take the name of a Biblical character and skew the entire story. While both biblically-named title characters doubtless contributed to history, the Hollywood versions appear to have perverted both men into something they were not.
Spend your money on something worthwhile, like God's Not Dead.
