The Thing 2011


"At an Antarctica research site, the discovery of an alien craft leads to a confrontation between graduate student Kate Lloyd and scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson. While Dr. Halvorson keeps to his research, Kate partners with Sam Carter, a helicopter pilot, to pursue the alien life form."-IMDB

Joel Edgerton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead leads this movie but only Mary was able to starlight here(i am her fan). I like her better as Ramona Flowers in the Scott Pilgrimm Vs The World Film

Along with a cast of almost unknown actors to me, all you need to do here is look panic and scared, cause there is some horrible creature outdoor ready to eat you alive.

Adapted from a book and a prequel of the same name, there is not much of a difference besides bigger explosion and better fire. The old one  is better and darker, it gives out a more suspense mode, this one is like, they tell you from the start what the heck is that thing..

Everything else was either predictable or you don't bother.

Creature design and make up was alright, but they made they seem like they just wanna gross you out.

Shots and fire from the whole show, the alien ship later on,  are all pretty basic stuff nothing to be awe about.

Predictable with a forceful cliffhanger style. I was glad it ended

Apparently it can speak and think like a human when it replicates, how and why i think no one bothered.

Again they wanna make like the Americans can handle everything, it's okay, we are Americans they say.

Why would you wanna remake this?

Wrapping it up:
You got many other movies to watch , but if you like a grossed out, just for the gore and ugliness of a film, the go ahead I ain't stopping you. Please take note this movie is for 18++

Did you know?: 
This is a prequel.

Rating: 1/5

Critic Mode:

"There is no story, no engagement, no emotion, and no concept,The whole movie did not have someone you can actually latch on to and hope that person to die, you simply just see people dying.".benjaminfoo of
