Is The Thing Worth Watching?

I am a huge movie fan, and I usually enjoy every movie. I was excited to see The Thing. I remember seeing the old one but I didn't remember much about it. So I was excited to load this up and check it out.

The Cast and Acting

As far as the cast goes I knew a few of the actors right off the top of my head. I thought that acting was pretty good. I enjoyed all the characters and you could sense the character building was there. Some characters you didn't know much about, but still they did a really good job.

The Story

I am going to try and explain what the story is about without really giving away anything. I hate spoilers and I wouldn't want to do that to anyone.

The story starts where an alien is discover in a remote location, so they get a group together to extract it and study it. The group only has a short period of time before a storm comes and they will not have a lot of time. They believe the alien is dead, however they are dead wrong.

The alien can copy forms and this is where it gets interesting. You never know who the alien might be. My wife and I like to guess and try and figure it out, I had pretty decent luck figuring it who out the alien was, but I wasn't right every time.

The Ending

The ending was just as your would expect intense and exciting! To me it seemed to make me wonder some about what happened or might happen. It seemed like a little bit of a cliff hanger ending and I think they left it open to a possible sequel.

How Many Stars Would You Give It

As I had stated above I am a movie fan and anything is partially entertaining I usually enjoy. I would give this movie 4 out of 5 stars. It was good and entertaining, it also kept you guessing and always wondering!

Would I recommend it

So in the end I would recommend it. If you like horror, or thriller, with a little action and suspense I would say watch it. I wouldn't buy it personally but it was worth a watch. It will keep you guessing and wondering, and then when it gets to the end, you will want more. I know that I wanted more and I am thinking a sequel, and in the end that made it worth a watch for myself and hopefully for you.


Street Talk

I love old movies I have watched The Thing many times. I love in the original film that James Arness was the Thing, which looked like a giant carrot. That part was silly but the movies was still good. The newer version was totally different especially the ending. Kurt Russell is good in the movie. I would recommend watching both movies.
