They just HAD to go too 'Hollywood' at the end, didn't they?
Apart from that; being a norwegian, this was a quite fun experience, watching some of our best actors in a Hollywood movie. And the best part; they were awesome! :D
I watched this on Bluray with english subtitles, and I have to say I had a few laughs over all the wrong translations. Some priceless moments there, I must say.
Not quite as good as the original, but still pretty fun. Seems a shame that the most modern CGI technology can't hold a candle to the rubber and latex monstrosities of the John Carpenter version. Still, I loved how it tied into the 1982 version by ending right where the first one starts off... watching both movies together (2011 first, then 1982) is actually a fun, creepy way to pass a cold winter's night.
If you go in with the high hopes that it'll match Carpenter's The Thing then you'll surely be disappointed.
Go in with an open mind and you'll probably enjoy it. A little heavy on the CGI side, but it was a good watch and complemented one of the best horror movies of all time.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
