      Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed While the special effects are really good, and the directing is decent, this just ends up becoming a really bad movie botching a really good concept... Apr 29, 2009 Full Review Anton Bitel Film4 The creature, a rather underwhelming specimen of plant life with glowing red CGI eyes, is only a little more wooden than the film's human characters. Jun 15, 2007 Full Review Mel Valentin Movie-Vault.com Rated: 3/10 Jul 5, 2005 Full Review David Cornelius eFilmCritic.com Too lame to be genuinely entertaining, not stupid enough throughout to be laughable. Rated: 2/5 Jun 18, 2005 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews This is easily the worst comic book movie ever made, and no, I haven't forgotten about the original Punisher adaptation. Rated: 1/4 Jun 5, 2005 Full Review Brian Thomas Now Playing Magazine One comics adaptation that comes with a few key panels missing. Rated: B May 2, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      matthias s **Title: "Man-Thing: Swamped by Missed Potential"** As a Marvel fan, "Man-Thing" was a disappointing adaptation that left much to be desired. Directed by Brett Leonard, the film tries to bring the enigmatic swamp creature to life but stumbles along the way. The story centers on Sheriff Kyle Williams (Matthew Le Nevez) investigating strange disappearances in Bywater Swamp. The setting is appropriately eerie, and the practical effects for Man-Thing are decent. However, the creature appears too infrequently, leaving fans wanting more. The movie's pacing is slow, bogged down by flat characters and awkward dialogue. Even with a potentially intriguing environmental message, the execution is heavy-handed and detracts from the horror elements. Despite the atmospheric swamp and a few moments of tension, "Man-Thing" ultimately feels like a missed opportunity. Hardcore Marvel enthusiasts might find some enjoyment, but for most, it’s a lackluster entry that fails to deliver the thrills and depth expected from the source material. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/24/24 Full Review Derek L Brett Leonard's take on Marvel Comic's swamp monster Man Thing ended up being a rather boring adaptation that failed to provide anything horrific along with its dull story, characters and poor acting from its cast. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Liam D An generic monster movie which would he already but it's based on one of Marvel's most underrated characters is insulting and a huge disappointment from Director Brett Leonard (Virtuosity, T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review James B The movie is slow and the actors are nobody but the man thing design is unique and I kind of like it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Richard R In my opinion one of the worst movies ever. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Andre G Pretty good movie. I don't know why it's called man-thing cause he doesn't look like a man at all. The movie is based in the swamp. So why not call swamp-thing instead. He looks like groot from guardians of the galaxy but more evil. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
