    The only solid Criticism it's getting is the plot it self which is basically the 16th president of america fighting bloodsucking vampires. It's B-Movie Material. But as anyne who has actually read the books, it's far more than mindless violence and a lame satire of a great man. It's a well written book than is far more educational than most of the dribble on television and the big screen.

    Lol, plot? Educational? Those things are thrown out the window when they added vampires to the mix. The movie isn't a documentary about Lincoln... It's supposed to be a mindless action movie meant for adding some random spice together. You go into it thinking that, you won't be upset. Seriously, who would go into this movie thinking it is suppose to show Lincoln in a historical sense and all that jazz?

    I thought that too until I read the book. I'm not saying the movie won't be that but the book is very much based in historical fact (vampires aside of course).

    Is the book really that historically informative? I have no real interest in the movie (beyond it sounding hillarious to think of the 16th president kicking vampire ass in his spare time), but I've always found Abe a facinating president and I might try giving the book a read after I finish Vonnegut's Night Mother.

    Aside from the Vampires, It's pretty much Abe Lincoln's Life story in a way.
