Honest, Abe, I liked it.

Mark and I went to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. And I might be a tad prejudiced but I enjoyed the movie. I think Dominic Cooper stole the film with his incredible smouldering performance as the 'good' vampire but Benjamin Walker (who is married to Meryl Streep's daughter) played Abraham Lincoln with boyish charm and self-deprecating swagger (if that's possible!)His chemistry with the actress who played Mary Todd Lincoln was spot on; she was very believable and loveable. When tragedy strikes I was absolutely in her corner as was the entire audience we saw the movie with.
The tie-in between vampires and slave owners was interesting; especially noteworthy was the appearance of Miss Harriet Tubman.
I found the film entertaining, fast paced and even a couple of times, quite moving.
Most of the critics are hating it but Richard Roeper gives the film a fine review. Watch the clip and see!
