The Thing

It was what it was.  I expected nothing more than a horror/thriller and it provided that passably well.  I jumped more than once, even though every single scare had been broadcast loudly for at least 30 seconds.  I will give it credit for being a smarter take on the original than I would have thought.  As a prequel whose final scene was the original’s first one, it had a certain momentum that a simple remake would not have had.  I also give credit to the lead (who played the cool girl in “Scott Pilgrim Vs The World”) for proving she can play an entirely different character, even if it is a stock one.
