I expected this film to be stupid, in some kind of campy recuperable way, but I never guessed it would be so astonishlingly boring. Bekmambetov's habit of linking his scenes with visual puns was virtually the only relief from the saggy middle of this script. His agent may be the idiot...

I was briefly thrilled when I thought that the film had riffed on George Caleb Bingham's "Jolly Flatboatman," replacing the painting's dancer with an ax-twirling Lincoln, but I can't swear that it wasn't a coincidence.
