Review of "Man Thing (DVD)"
This is a branch of the Moxon And Co business I enjoy writing reviews and hope people make the right choice when buying entertainment products.
So when about 95% of superhero films in the past 5 years have failed, Marvel decides to take one of it's most unknown characters and make a very unknown film that well as always failed. In the comics man is a scientist who took some experimental super soldier serum and then dies in a swamp and becomes a brainless being know as Man-Thing who defends the swamp he lives in. So this kind of happens in the film except there's no super soldier serum and Man-thing looks more like a creepy tree Halloween costume than Man-Thing.Cast:
Mark Stevens-Dr. Ted Sallis / Man-Thing
Matthew Le Nevez-Sheriff Kyle Williams
Rachael Taylor-Teri Elizabeth Richards
Jack Thompson-Frederick Schist
Rawiri Paratene-Peter Horn
Alex O'Loughlin-Deputy Eric Fraser
So there's a swamp that has a dark spirit witch the local Indians say is gonna get revenge on the local mining company that's been mining oil in the area, and then there's a ton of dead bodies turning up in the swamp. So a new sheriff Kyle Williams turns up to sort this out by first trying to figure out what's going on by looking at dead bodies and sending more people into the swamp to die. So Man-Thing continues on it's killing spree and now focuses on killing people at the oil mine.
So I didn't enjoy this film it just become murder after murder after murder so it's just receptive and boring, so the story is boring as stated before and it follows the comics very vaguely. With it been a unknown film it has no big names in so the actors are pretty bad, the special effects are ok but still can't save the film and there's no point in buying it as you'd just be wasting your money I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone. It was crap compared to any comic book film that was made before it and you may know they were pretty crap as well.
So don't buy this film it's a waste of money and time I didn't enjoy this film as it vaguely followed the comics Man-Thing looked nothing like he did in the comics. It follows no comic book story and just followed the general story of the Hulk 2003 film. And well the end was poorly filmed and it made all the characters seem like the least heroic people you could find in a comic book film.
Thank you for reading my review.

But what they ultimately discover is more horrific than they could ever imagine, a swamp creature that feeds off of human fear.
