So, this isn't the WORST example of a remake, the cast is very decent, and I like the idea of a crossover between a prequel and a remake. But it's not the best either. It particularly pales in comparison to John Carpenter's The Thing, considering I just watched that one last night, plus the CGI effects are... you know, CGI.
P.S. Tormund and his ginger beard are in this movie, which kind of makes me happy :)
