While there ARE a lot of practical shots, The Thing is tarnished by a slew of heavy CGI work that is nothing short of shameful, lazy filmmaking.
“Everything that was great about the 1982 version (it was a small, claustrophobic film with strong characters and awesome special effects) is ignored in this 2011 crap that’s nothing more than a boring CGI promo-reel. Universal’s new ‘The Thing’ already looks more dated than Carpenter’s, and it’s not even in theaters as of this writing!”
