Bill Oberst Jr. plays Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States of America circa 1863. Union soldiers are being conscripted at a feverish rate and the tide of the war is turning. Governing and fighting the war are not without their perils. Apparently some Union soldiers have disappeared under assault from Confederate rebels. Having dealt as an infant with the zombie/plague scourge, Mr. Lincoln felt he would be uniquely qualified to dispatch any future threat from the disease. Lincoln is portrayed, perhaps rightly so, as the bravest man in the nation.
The reviews for "Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies" are not positive at all. Most people agree that it is a boring movie with little to offer in the theatrical sense. It really has the feel of a made for TV movie. Let's not discredit the entire show. The saving grace is Karl T. Hirsch's willingness to go out on a limb by adding historical settings and some historical actors in order to substantiate the film's premise. There is a fascination in America about President Lincoln. In a sense, with all of the modern racial strife, Lincoln is becoming increasingly mythologized as a man of courage and honor. This lends itself to filmmakers looking to capitalize on the deceased President's mythos. Overall, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies is a movie that offers historical insight, an old-fashioned sense of honorable conduct, and a badass Lincoln decapitating zombies with a gardening scythe. What more can we ask for?
