Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

*spoiler-less... I think.

Won a contest on Churp Churp and got myself one pair of premiere screening tickets of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie.

Produced by Tim Burton and directed by Timur Bekmambetov, I foresee this movie is quite dark and bloodthirsty one.

I really love movie that crossover with real life event. Although some may find it twisted or just simply dislike how they 'humiliate' the character, but I feel there's life in the character. Whenever the 'movie' Abraham Lincoln gives a speech, I can feel my goosebumps appear, as if Abraham Lincoln stands in front of me, giving the speech by himself.

Although I'm not American, but I really like him saying: All men are created equal. (Due to the slavery issue back at those days.) And when he say that:  the deaths of so many brave soldiers would not be in vain, that slavery would end as a result of the losses, and the future of democracy would be assured, that "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Suddenly, I feel that this is really what a president, a leader of a nation should do for his country, a government that sees their people as the only one important thing, and fight for the best for his people. (Okay, getting a bit politically-coloured already. Stop here shall I.)

Settings back at 1800's and I really like how they wear in the movie. So nice, elegant, and gentlemen (for the guys) and when it comes to Abraham Lincoln slashing those vampires with an axe in his black, long victorian coat swaying, that is just WOW!

Overall, it's quite an interesting movie. Before this, I told le bf that I will fall asleep if the movie is boring, but no, not a bit. The pace of the movie is quite thrilling and exciting and there's no time for you to feel bored. I barely even drink my coke throughout the whole movie.


Last but not least, Linkin Park's new song from their new album "Living Things" as the movie's ending theme: Powerless

3D is available for this movie too. ^^

I shall end this post with Abraham Lincoln's signature:

(so nice right?)
