THE THING (2011)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is very easy on the eyes, but this film has a lot going against it. First off, the fact that it’s a prequel puts the audience way ahead of the cast. That would be okay, but the characters do such stupid things. Let’s not tell anyone what we found. And hey, why don’t we drill into the block of ice to get a tissue sample from the creature? Really? No thought to alien microbes? This needs to be done under level-4 contamination precautions. I lost confidence in the screenplay there. The fillings were a clever touch, but mostly, to quote “Motorpsycho Nightmare” – “Oh, no, no, I’ve been through this movie before.”
