Not my thingBy a customer from Brighton, England , 07 Jun 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a pretty poor effort overall. The direction feels half hearted at best. This includes strange things going on in the background. For instance in one sequence there is someone moving around in the background who looks like part of the film crew that forgot to get out of the way of the camera. The actors accents slip in and out and add to the amateur feel of this film. The only commendable thing is the well realised monster. Although it has to be said that even this is not that original. Not recommended and I'm not sure how it ended up on my film list in the first place. Perhaps one of my kids added it as a joke.

Goulishly GoodBy freakygeek (13 reviews) from Norwich , 21 Oct 2010OK movie version of the marvel comic. At times can be so slow the film drags on, But also has moments of suspense and equally gore. Worth a watch but dont rush out to buy it.
man thingBy gulag (37 reviews) from stoke , 21 Mar 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidei'm a big marvel fan,but for a d-list marvel character,i didn't hold out much hope for man thing.sadly,i was proved right.
the film has the feel and atmosphere of the comics,but nothing really seems to happen.
my main problem though,is that in a film called man thing,you'd at least expect to see the titular character for a bit more than the last five minutes!
an overall disapointing effort.
Watchable but weakBy JustKewl (105 reviews) from Ipswich , 10 Oct 2009Well, only a couple weeks and Hallowe'en is upon us. Man Thing is the type of film to get you in the mood for either horror, ghostly scary things. However, the film lacks the scares the most horror films give you. The story's a good one and the scene is set for a scare fest. Yet.... it just doesn't come off well. The acting isn't so bad (I have seen worse) but, the charactors come across a little less enthused about their parts in the story. Some if the film is quite boring and little slow. While the other times, when something happening, it just missing that edge that horror films have. This film lacks suspense and and the rush of the heart when watching. It's alright but, if you're looking to be scared this hallowe'en... don't rent this film expecting that.
If you want your brain scrambled!!!!By a customer from Somerset , 17 Nov 2008OMG!! I do believe that this is the worst film i have ever ever seen! What a load of balls!! The acting was well...(i could do better) and the swamp man idea was just ludicrous! B movie, no way, this is a z- movie..please poke out my eyes rather than have me see this again!!! It was very painful - i would rather have a sharp object shoved up my behind than watch it!! Do you get the drift.....please dont watch it to see how bad it is, it's a waste of a rental!!!!
Seen Worst!By a customer from Berkshire , 30 Jun 2008At the start I thought 'oh dear', but it is not THAT bad.
The acting is ok - no Oscar winners, but the story is a bit lame.
Did think it was a bit scary, gory and the language was a bit much for a 15 - but then that just maybe me!
