Hello Gorgeous Reader!
Weird… to me that title is synonymous to “Santa Clause Lost Son of Adolf Hitler” or something… This concept seems like one of those that people get when they’re getting high with their friends. (No Offense)
But seriously though, the concept is just a bad mash to me. For one thing, I’m not from America and I care less about whatever factual detail they’ve chosen to add vampirism into. Secondly, I’m still confused between the identities of Abraham Lincoln and Uncle Sam. So, for a non-American who just wants to see a good movie, I felt unsatisfied because it messed with my brain.
The movie depicts “Abe Lincs” stand on racial discrimination ( between Caucasians and African-Americans). Yet it seemed to disregard the subliminal depiction of gender discrimination. You see, in the movie, if you were bitten by a vampire; you die of you’re “pure of heart” but you turn into a vampire if you’re not. Since there was only one lady vampire in the movie and most of those who died were women; Are you telling me that women are purer of heart than men? I beg to disagree, because the woman who stepped on my feet like it was a rock is a total B*t@#. Just like the cashier who had no sense of empathy on the people waiting in line is a total B*t@#. Anyway, what I’m saying is that women are equally as evil as men. And that gender discrimination is equally as offensive as racial discrimination.
The movie adopted the “slow and go” visual effects akin to that of the movies 300 and matrix. (which I admit was cool) The score is similar to that of Conception (where it’s like hearing a gong echoing in your ear). To add to the metaphor of a hurriedly done copied homework; you will notice an editing error. Notice that Abe’s face is a still mess while Henry shows him a slide show of Vampires. Yet the scene right before that he’d already healed his bruised face.
Well at the very least the actors did their part, given the very twisted storyline. It’s nice to see a new face, as the this movie could be the first leading role for the guy (who resembles Penn Badgely) who starred as Lincoln. The rest of the supporting cast however are familiar faces.
Favorite Line: (this isn’t verbatim)
Q: Why would you choose a guy with such a common face? A: Well, I think those with common faces are the best kind. That’s why God makes so many of them.
So on the rate of 1 to 5; five being the highest, I give this movie
a TWO, just wait for the DVD or HBO showing…
