  • 5 stars good prequel to '82 carpenter's version. good digital vfx, definitely not "sub-par" as some people would believe.
  • 4 stars i 'm a fan of john carpenter's remake, this was by far the best sci-fi i have seen in awhile. watch it, it's worth it.
  • 3 stars Great CGI.
  • 4 stars Great rendition of John Carpenters classic.
  • 3 stars interesting twist on the original movie - better than what the critics are saying about it.
  • 3 stars Passable,the 80's version was alott better.
  • 4 stars Excellent CGA. Love the way it appears even when I have never seen the original
  • 3 stars Lots of jump and startle scares in this movie but still not as good as the 80's versions. A solid effort but wait to rent it.
  • 4 stars This is a very well made prequel to John Carpenter's The Thing. Story line is good and special effects are great. Stay for the credits as it has a good lead in to the original. Only complaint would be that the movie was a little short.
  • 2 stars A barely scary movie. More sci-fi then horror and a poor prequil to the 1982 John Carpenter version. Over use of CGI special effects is one of the downfalls of this movie. It should have been used to add on to the effects, but not as the main effects. There is very little tension, and the horror aspects are very "startle me" moments than really scary tension. Unfortunatly the ties to the 1982 version and the lead in to it made this a very predictable end to the movie.
