Critic Reviews of "The Thing (2011)"Time OutNovember 29, 2011
Efficient enough for newcomers perhaps, but never that chilling, and the predictably dull CGI underlines how far movie magic has regressed in the past couple of decades.The AtlanticOctober 14, 2011
The line between homage and apery is a fine one, and The Thing teeters on it at times.Richard Roeper.comOctober 14, 2011
"It's big on the grotesquery but short on genuine scares."Detroit NewsOctober 14, 2011
It's not rocket science, but The Thing does offer solid cheap thrills for the slick gore crowd, proving once again: Horror doesn't have to be horrible.Village VoiceOctober 14, 2011
John Carpenter should approve of this reasonably respectful and tough-minded prequel to his 1982 The Thing.Globe and MailOctober 14, 2011
It's no great thing, just a better Thing than expected.Reel Film ReviewsAugust 11, 2013
A misguided and generally worthless prequel...DeadspinJune 23, 2013
There's just no sense of dread in this "Thing," no notion that these people are truly at the edge of the world, with nowhere to escape and no one to trust.Georgia StraightFebruary 15, 2013
Since Heijningen already had dibs on The Thing's hallowed name, he didn't even bother trying to conjure any of its slow-burning suspense or claustrophobic vibe.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 01, 2013
For a creature feature set on the South Pole, it lacks urgency, or even a sense that it's very cold in Antarctica.We Got This CoveredSeptember 22, 2012
The fact that The Thing falls flat is proof positive that unlike the film's industrious alien, parasitic remakes can't easily carbon copy the host.eFilmCritic.comApril 30, 2012
Gets the externals but can't duplicate the authentic chill and isolation of the original.
