One nation, under axe…
It was a pretty Sunday. The gloom and anger in the skies calmed down for just enough to allow the 5 of us to bike or cycle to the destination. It’d been so long since I cycled to Majorstujen that I had forgotten how much faster it is than using the bus. After being super-early I sat down for a beer on my own, wondering if anyone will actually show up. But how can you miss a film with such a spectacular title?
Abraham Lincoln – Vampire Hunter. It might as well have been called The Pennsylvania Axe Massacre. It’s dark and gloomy and amazing; and apparently based on a book that is super-awesome. I can’t remember who praised it, but it was someone that is worth listening to, as far as I recall.
This is a Timur Bekmambetov movie, which makes it even more awesome. Before you ask – just like Adam did – “who?”, Timur is a Russian-Kazakh director that made two of my favourite movies – Night Watch and Day Watch, films also based on fairly good books with ridiculous story. And made in Russia. You should watch them.
If you wonder how on earth you go from Abraham Lincoln – president, father of nation and a banknote portrait to Abraham Lincoln – Vampire hunter, I can’t blame you. But I can’t spoil it for you, really, I can just say that it’s a fair enough plot. And it features wicked, swooshing, brutal ax-murder action afterwards, which should pretty much be all you need in order to go see it. Are you running to the cinema already? The fact that this is done in 3d and it’s done nicely should get you moving, if you’re still here reading this.Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter , 8.3 out of 10 based on 6 ratings
