The Thing it is very juicy movie, as in blood spilling everywhere and the alien mutated from human body it depends too much on graphic too! It is not a very scary for me because only appear some disturbing voice on the scene, it is my opinion at the end of the movie which mean it is scary when you watching the movie. On the movie poster view, I thought there is some long finger nail or mutated claw that grow on the human body, and actually I got half correct about this matter, it could mutated into any kind of shape. Any kind of shape as in becoming fat and bold or thin and sharp, depends on the imagination of the director or creator of this movie.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate Llyod, one of the Ms. Smart in this movie and Firebat wannabe (refer from StarCraft II)! She is archaeologist and she examine some dinosaur dead body at the beginning of the story, then she follow Dr. Sander Halvorson to Antarctica because his secret team discover alien craft! At the end most of the people got killed in the movie because got infected by aliens cell and mutated into alien without others noticing about it.
Ulrich Thomsen as Dr. Sander Halvorson, he is the one who handle the secret team and he don't allow his other teammate to spread the news to around the world about what they had discover in Antarctica. He is a bad person the movie, because for the sake of research and prize winning award, he can become very selfish and do not let more people know about this discovery.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Jameson & Joel Edgerton as Braxton Carter. Both of them are helicopter pilot and they survive from the helicopter crash. It is unbelievable that they survive the helicopter crash because other people in this movie think that the helicopter crash will cost them a life.
Wanna know how Alien looks alike in The Thing (2011)? This got too much shadow from story books and computer games, my very first impression about this alien is looks like crab! And then I think Alien slowly looks like Devourer from Heroes of Newerth! Split up the chest into the half and mutated hand can hook victim towards him and suck the victim power with it.
Spine Crawler in StarCraft II? Spine Crawler is a defend building in Zerg, spine crawler attack people and pierce enemy unit.
Or Brood Lord in StarCraft II? A flying unit that spawn many mini Brood Lings and attack building, which is can spawn dam a lot of Brood Lings within few second without killing it. So a alien got chopped of his hand and run separately in the house and hunt down other human too!
Overall this movie was 3/10, it is not scary at all but the sounds system is very disturbing for me. The story line and movie plot got too many weakness, such as Kate Lloyd is a smart person but she miss judge about Dr. Sander had obtain a sample from alien before the alien broke free, and I think Dr. Sander have the bigger chance of becoming Alien at the very first place. This movie got too much shadow about games, strategy about killing a alien by using fire is very common seen on story books and computer games. I think there is other way can kill that alien by not using so much fire in this movie.
