Are you kidding me?? That’s it Hollywood has finally run out of ideas! This is ridiculous!!
Do you know what the sad part is?…
I will probably see this in the theatre lol!!
I will update this article with my thoughts after I see the movie.
The movie was pretty good, except for the super human powers of Abraham Lincoln with no explanation. Cutting a tree down with one shot, moving super fast. He wasn’t a vampire or anything other than human. It was corny.
But the scenery was amazing! It was really cool to see the Mississippi with steamboats and other scenery. The story was also cool and funny.
Go see this movie for at least the eye candy. It was pretty well made.
