The Thing Review

1 December 2011 11:41 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthijs van Heijningen Jr

Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Ulrich Thomsen

Running Time: 102 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: In 1982, a team of Norwegian scientists discover an alien lifeform buried deep in an icy grave in Antarctica. They enlist the help of a palaeontologist, Kate (Winstead), to help them extract the creature, but realise too late that it is still alive. Thus begins a deadly game of cat and mouse, as everyone is suspect and nobody can be trusted…

Far be it from me to presuppose the outcome of this horror prequel to the 1982 classic of the same name, but… I did. Much too easily can the audience predict every single twist and turn The Thing catapults at them, long before it has chance to fire.

New ‘The Thing’ Movie Delivered Lots Of Thrills,Extreme Graphic Violence & More

15 October 2011 9:32 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

New 'The Thing' movie delivered lots of thrills,extreme graphic violence & more. Universal Pictures recently released their new, very graphic/thriller, flick "The Thing" into theaters this weekend. I just got through watching it,and I thought it was very disturbing,yet entertaining. The violence was very graphic. I mean,they really left nothing to the imagination with this one. They showed me stuff that usually only surgeons get to see. The movie stars: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Lloyd Walker, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Eric Olsen, Ulrich Thomsen, Paul Braunstein, Trond Espen Selm,and Jorgen Langhelle. In the flick, Dr. Sander Halvorson invited everyone on a field trip to dig up a very dangerous alien creature deep in Antarctica on a marooned colony. Little did they know, it would be their last trip. Apparently,this creature was supposed to be a major scientific discovery,and Dr. Halvorson was elated about it. »
