“The movie started with a promise, with Norwegian Scientist found something unique in Antarctica. However the movie gradually lost it grip, at least for me and turn into insanity, with alien life form mutating and imitating humans and the scientists and workers on the base had to run for their lives.

I like Sci Fi but The Thing suggesting a Prequel, the way it ended didnt appeal to me and the IMDB & Listal Ratings are the manifestation of masses, I presume.” read more

Solid, enjoyable monster yarn - a great prequel

“"Either someone miraculously healed themselves, or someone is not who they say they are."

Whether accidental or not, when Bill Lancaster was writing John Carpenter's The Thing a full two decades ago, he also designed an ideal set-up for a prequel/remake. Considering how many classic horror films have been remade in recent years, it's frankly surprising that it has taken so long for someone to take advantage of the prequel possibilities left behind by Lancaster. See, in 1982's The Thing, the characters find the charred ruins of a Norwegian research base, so 2011's The Thing explores what happened at that Norwegian camp. Thus, while this flick (annoyingly) shares the same title as the 1982 original, this is a chronological precursor to Carpenter's film rather than just a lazy remak” read more

"24.1 PC Ihan mainio esi-osa Carpenterin teokselle, mutta ei tietenkään tavoita samanlaista tunnelmaa ja mahtavuutta. Jännitystä löytyy ihan mukavasti ja 'Se' on hienosti tehty, vaikka CGI:tä onkin käytetty. Näyttelijät suoriutuvat rooleistaan mallikkaasti. Loppu sai kylmiä väreitä aikaan ja tahdon katsoa Carpenterin mestariteos jälleen kerran. "

"A prequel to arguably one of the best horror movies and remakes of all time at first seemed to be an interesting idea given the source material. I thought it would be a cool look at the origin of The Thing itself in the Norwgian sector of Antarctica and how the remnants of the facility that Kurt Russell's character and company stumble across in the beginning act of the John Carpenter film came to be. But, once again, Hollywood has raped another beloved horror classic. I'll admit there were a few"

"Efektipornoilun prequel/remake/mikälie on vähän pettymys, sillä prequel-asemastaan huolimatta se tuntuu paljon enemmän remakelta. Tämä johtuu siitä, että jostain syystä Carpenterin versiosta on vetäisty suoraan kohtauksia. Esimerkkinä ns. testauskohtaus, vaikka tällä kertaa katsellaankin hammaspaikkoja veren sijasta. Paranoia-aspekti toimii kuitenkin paljon paremmin kuin Carpenterin visiossa, vaikkei silti vedä vertoja Hawksille. Nyt siihen edes panostetaan ja olioarvailuun heitt"

"The prequel/remake of John Carpenter's classic turns a genuinely interesting and tense suspense story into a straight forward lackluster CGI monster chasing after people. It's boring, poorly pieced together and devoid of anything the slightest bit scary."

"28.11.2011 "This thing can... and probably has... replicated a person." I'm a huge, huge fan of John Carpenter's The Thing, but i was not excited for this at all. I still wanted to give it a chance though as i heard it wasn't that bad. I thought it started out fine. It was suspenseful and had some good creature effects. I liked not knowing who was human and not. It was like watching the Carpenter movie for the first time. But it get's ruined pretty fast when the two american chopper pilots f"
