Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.
Benjamin Walker previously appeared, in 2010, in a stage production called "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson." In both that play and this film, he plays a title character who is a fantasy version of a real-life American President.
History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quiet deeds. History remembers the battle and forgets the blood. Whatever history remembers of me, if it remembers anything at all, it shall only be a fraction of ...
When Abe gets his vampire hunting axe, it's treated/laced with silver along the edge of the blade. The problem with doing this, is that the "treatment" would eventually wear off. And the more he used it, the faster it would get closer to losing said treatment. Thus, eventually becoming useless against vampires.
What should have been done, is to create a whole new axe blade and mix in a small amount of silver. Though silver is a soft metal, even a trace amount within the metal itself would last much longer than simply pouring it along the edge.
The film's title doesn't appear until half-way through the end credits.
