Quick Movie Review – the Thing

The Thing (2011)

Adam Finch: So, I’m gonna die because I floss

A movie that strips away most of the tension and ambiguity and replaces it with overly clean visual effects, too much CGI, pretty protagonists, americanized Norwegians, a dumbed down and fast tracked plot and nearly none of the tension or craft of the original.  Not the worst or most offensive remake in recent memory, but definitely lacking in any real creativity and a totally unnecessary addition to the story.

3.5/10
