Product Description

Horror comic book adaptation. Deep in the swamps of the Florida Everglades, a real estate tycoon is trying to develop the land for commercial use when one of his crewmen is killed. A local Seminole Indian tribe gets the blame, but they know that the real culprit is the monstrous Man Thing, a living plant creature that burns to death anyone within whom he senses fear. The Man Thing was once a scientist himself, but has become hideously deformed after injecting himself with an experimental serum, and is condemned to wander the swamps for eternity.

Man-Thing is one of Marvel's great Marmite characters, some love him, others hate him, I did not take to the character at first preferring DC's Swamp Thing but having re-read the original stories many years later I got to liking old Ted Sallis.
Although the film drops plenty nods towards the comic, a missing Ted Sallis, the greedy businessman F.A.Schist (Jack Thompson), a reference to the Nexus of All Realities and characters named after his creators Steve Gerber, Mike Ploog and Val Meyerick it never quite hits the target.
The creature, although it appears to be aiding the native inhabitants of the swamp never shows any of the empathic nature that was essential to the comic, no one here burns at the Man Thing's touch but there's plenty death by vegetation.
There's no background story to the creature itself and only a hint or two at any possible connection to the missing Ted Sallis.
Sadly the two early Swamp Thing movies Swamp Thing [DVD] [1981] and The Return Of Swamp Thing [DVD] [1988] make this attempt look quite shoddy, partly because they were largely played for fun.
As a general swamp creature on the prowl movie it's OK, as an adaptation of a cult comic book it fails but fair credit to them for having an attempt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Expected 4 May 2011
I purchased Man Thing not expecting very much but did so being an avid Marvel/DC Comics fan and have to say was pleasantly suprised.Purists of the Man Thing comics may be slightly disappointed but after watching with an open mind and not too high an expectation i found it to be an enjoying movie.The scenes in the swamp (most of the film)are dark and creepy(ish)and go some way to covering up some of the less than convincing acting.At only 92 minutes long Man Thing's well worth a watch despite some negative reviews and deserves a place in any comic book dvd collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars How can you rate this?! 27 Feb 2007
After being a Manthing fan for a number of years, this film is the most dissapointing pile of cack I have ever seen. To say this film is boring and predictable is an insult to every other film that is boring and predictable

The Manthing comics were often intelligent psycholigical reads and the creater wasn't a random killer.....people that touched him just happened to combust. I was expecting more of a Frankenstein appeal to this film with viewers wanting to relate to the doomed creature, how Marvel could endorce this cheap horror as having anything to do with their character is beyond me. I didn't notice Stan Lee have a guest spot in this one and it is painfully obvious why

5.0 out of 5 stars MAN-THING 11 Mar 2009
By Mykola
I bought this DVD because Alex O'Loughlin is in it. I had discovered Alex in Moonlight on TV and I have since collected all of Alex's work. When I watched Man-Thing I had already seen FEED, Oyster Farmer and Mary Bryant. Man-Thing is just what it is supposed to be - a fun film version of the Marvel Comic Book. If I hadn't known before watching the movie, I would have never guessed that this is an Australian film. I live in the southern US myself - the locations they used to shoot at were very believable and Alex O. did an amazing job with his southern accent. In my opinion Brett got it right when he cast Alex as the lead in FEED after doing Man-Thing. Alex is so much better with an american accent (impeccable, actually), and I enjoyed Matthew Le Nevez much more as a co-star with his natural Australian accent. I would absolutely recommend Man-Thing though - Alex shines as Deputy Eric Fraser. The movie reminds me of the kind of sci-fi flicks I used to watch on a Saturday afternoon on TV, and that is just what Brett intended it to be. Nothing too serious, just good old-fashioned sci-fi fun. Buy Man-Thing and while you are shopping be sure to buy the rest of Alex's movies and work on TV - you will be so glad that you did. The man can do no wrong on film!
