It's Not Human. Yet.
When paleontologist Kate Lloyd travels to an isolated outpost in Antarctica for the expedition of a lifetime, she joins an international team that unearths a remarkable discovery. Their elation quickly turns to fear as they realize that their experiment has freed a mysterious being from its frozen prison. Paranoia spreads like an epidemic as a creature that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish in this spine-tingling thriller.

Not bad but definitely not as good as John Carpenter's 80ies horror classic of the same name. Its more of a action sci/fi movie with some scary moments than a proper horror flick. The SFX and acting is mostly good and the story's pace quite nice. However I never fully emerged into the flick, it just didn't grip me as Carpenter's did!

after seeing the 1982, you appreciate more the 2011, because you know what has happened with Norwegians, but not as good, the bond with the another is out of the blue, although this has to be the end to link

A good monster movie and another good retelling of a classic, but probably better for newcomers than for people with fond memories of the previous version(s). Less tension and more 'BOO!', less revulsion and more awe, this is the 'accessible' version of The Thing.
