It's a shame this movie originally had some great real practical effects, but studio execs made them cover it all up with CGI. Look up the original effects they are awesome.

Not too bad prequel. Nothing new but very watchable

They just HAD to go too 'Hollywood' at the end, didn't they?
Apart from that; being a norwegian, this was a quite fun experience, watching some of our best actors in a Hollywood movie. And the best part; they were awesome! :D
I watched this on Bluray with english subtitles, and I have to say I had a few laughs over all the wrong translations. Some priceless moments there, I must say.

Was alright, CGI was decent (I don't like gore anyway), acting was decent, but the story felt like the Thing was just randomly copying a multitiude of people, there was so little suspense about who it was. Not necessarily because it was obvious, but because it didn't seem to matter.

If you go in with the high hopes that it'll match Carpenter's The Thing then you'll surely be disappointed.

Go in with an open mind and you'll probably enjoy it. A little heavy on the CGI side, but it was a good watch and complemented one of the best horror movies of all time.

a complete abuse of the original. boring, horrible action, bad story, crappy cgi...incredibly fucked up remake - waste of time. watch the original, much better (even without cheap cgi!)

Got better as it went on. CGI was pretty good for the most part. As a whole it was better than I expected it to be, but I wouldn't recommend anyone goes out of their way to see it.

Not quite as good as the original, but still pretty fun. Seems a shame that the most modern CGI technology can't hold a candle to the rubber and latex monstrosities of the John Carpenter version. Still, I loved how it tied into the 1982 version by ending right where the first one starts off... watching both movies together (2011 first, then 1982) is actually a fun, creepy way to pass a cold winter's night.

Low expectations... hence I was pleasantly surprised. I love the original. Or rather... the original remake, and I thought it captured that world and the atmosphere of that film pretty damn well. The "fillings" sequence was just as tense as the '82 "blood test" and I like the way they tied everything up nicely (and accurately) even though the main plot got stupid very fast in the last fifteen minutes. I enjoyed it.

Average, felt too obvious who the alien was and the CGI just made the horror/graphic scenes seem empty, especially in comparison; Just makes you appreciate how amazing Carpenter's version is.

If you didn't enjoy this, you probably compare it to Carpenter's version. The movie was in itself pretty enjoyable and funny. To be norwegian and watching this was pretty interesting aswell. It was funny to watch the beginning of a Hollywood movie consisting of only Norwegian. I would reccomend to watch this movie, but see it as a homage to Carpenter's movie, and don't compare it. Just my opinion here ofcourse :)

Went in with low expectations without seeing the original, and I enjoyed it, and, surprisingly, I found myself liking this more than other monster movies, such as Alien. The only letdown for me was the bad CGI at some parts, but not bad enough to let the movie down as a whole.

Somebody told me they made a remake of 'The Thing' 1982. It's not a remake, but a prequel. I like!
