That pretty much sums this film up. It was a decent watch but I will never understand why they didn't come up with anything different. For all intents and purposes it's the same as the Carpenter class

An average movie

“Beforehand, I wasn’t sure about this one. Indeed, nowadays John Carpenter’s movies are really popular among remakers and this movie was already the 4th one they decided to redo. Of course, I know, it is not actually a remake but a prequel tot the classic directed by John Carpenter. However, I still think it was obviously marketed as a remake. Indeed, the title was the same, the poster was really reminiscent to its predecessor and even the letter type for the title was exactly the same. I think it's really lame to make such an effort to make it look like a remake when actually, it isn't supposed to be one. To make things even worse, I thought that the plot was really similar and they tried really hard to make you believe that the whole thing was not an updated version. So, all these mad” read more

"9.2. John Carpenter's horror classic The Thing showed that even a remake doesn't have to be without fresh ideas: his film was very different from the 1951 scifi chiller by Christian Nyby and Howard Hawks. Well, the new addition to the series is a prequel to the Carpenter film, but it's fairly obvious that originally in production it has been a remake. The resulting film is, above all, boring. Until the last 15 minutes the movie has very little to deliver except a predictable rehash of the event"

" viewed: February 23, 2013 Everything ok, but I still wonder... for what? In my opinion, version from the 80's was sufficient. Didn't happen in this movie nothing particularly new, something no one could have guessed watching the original. Although everything I think that the movie wasn't bad, frightening and memorable alien character composed of two bodies at a time... brrrrr, yes, it was scary. If not the fact that it has been and is in a much better version, this movie would be pretty cool. "

"7/10 It's been way too long since I saw John Carpenter's 1982 version, so I'm not really in any order to compare that one with this prequel. So I'm basically just going to go with how much enjoyed it. Which I did. The CGI might look a bit weird at times and is certainly not particularly scary or suspenseful, but that doesn't mean it can be enjoyable! Much of the enjoyment is because of my fellow Norwegians. They are great and portrayed in way that, occasionally, is hilarious! The rest of the ca"
