Movie Review: The Thing (2011)

Here's the Monster Men movie review of the remake of The Thing... I mean "prequel" of the 1982 John Carpenter classic sci-fi/horror flick, The Thing starring Kurt Russell. The 1982 version set the bar so high that anyone who loves that one will not find much new ground covered. It's got it's moments, but the CG seems lazy and kills the mood in many places.

If you have never seen the original... or the real original; the 1951 The Thing from Another World, you might like the new version. But only the first 20 minutes of this new version are a prequel. After that it's pretty much a retread of the 1982 version... but not as good.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead does a good job with what she's given, but her role lacks the edge of Kurt Russell or the boldness of Ripley from Alien... the mold in which her character was cast from.

So take the Monster Men review from the perspective of two lovers of the 1982 version... but when in doubt, there's always something fun about a seeing a horror movie.
