History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quiet deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood. Whatever history remembers me, if it remembers me at all, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth. For what ever else I am, a husband, a lawyer... a President... I shall always think of myself as a man who struggled against the darkness.

This is by far the worst movie adaptation I've ever seen. The fact that I gave it one star is only because I was forced to. Seth Grahame-Smith's book is not a literary masterpiece by any standard, but from what it was trying to achieve it managed to successfully and made it enjoyable. The only thing similar with this movie and that book was its title and the vague idea that Abraham Lincoln was something other than just a president. There is no emotional connection with the audience, no attempt to try to tell the biography of his life, the historical context is all gone, and they even managed to screw up the romance of Abe with Mary. I went into this trying very hard to like this film but just couldn't suffer another second of this butchery of such a good novel. All in all if you want to see a vampire slasher you will definitely enjoy this film but if you are coming to it to see the novel be put on the big screen you will be greatly disappointed. Don't waste your time and your money watching this
