The idea of this Tim Burton production is that Honest Abe (Benjamin Walker) may have spent his days rising from humble law student to American president, but he spent his nights beheading vampires in acrobatic slow motion.

What's odd is how seriously the film takes this idea, presenting itself as an earnest, dusty-brown historical biopic that just happens to have some piranha-faced monsters and overblown action sequences.
