directed by Brett Leonard
I don’t know why you’d want to but you could watch the movie version I guess. I had to watch this “adaptation” (several times actually) in order to do a bonus episode so I suggest just listening to that instead of subjecting yourself to this film. But okay if you don’t listen to the episode there’s this:
Man-Thing directed by Brett Leonard and starring Matthew Le Nevez, Rachael Taylor, and Jack Thompson was released in 2005 from Lions Gate Films. And I can say with full confidence that of all the films released in 2005 – this was definitely one of them.
The final analysis for 2005’s Man-Thing is simply this. It is not a good movie. But it is interesting as an artifact of a time before the explosion of comic book and super hero movies into pop culture. A time when anything was being tried to capture that sweet, sweet nerd demographic and various genres and characters both main stream and obscure were thrown at the wall. Literally, because movies are actually thrown on a wall – that’s how we watch them. It is just a reminder of what a) should not be done when adapting a character to the screen and b) hopefully shows filmmakers what can be done with a creature like Man-Thing.
