The Thing


When a group of Norwegians finds a UFO hidden beneath the surface of Antarctica, a team of scientists are sent to investigate the ship and a frozen alien. This prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 original tells us what happened prior to that film’s opening scene, with the crazed Norwegians… but it’s all just an excuse for a remake that adds nothing new or exciting whatsoever. Heavily influenced by Alien (1979), but dull – and that goes for the cast as well.

2011-U.S. 103 min. Color. Widescreen. D: Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr. Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Kate Lloyd), Joel Edgerton (Sam Carter), Ulrich Thomsen (Sander Halvorson), Eric Christian Olsen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Paul Braunstein.
