Critic Reviews of "Swamp Thing"Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderJuly 09, 2012
The film is too lazy to provide any actual jokes with its send-up of the genre.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Craven tries to do this 'veggie-man' horror in a suitable DC Comics style; and with Louis Jourdan as arch-villain 'Arcane', not to mention Adrienne Barbeau (Mrs John Carpenter) as the Thing's object of desire, he's definitely on the right track.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
One of those movies that fall somewhere between buried treasures and guilty pleasures.Vincent Canby New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
[The film] wants desperately to be funny and, from time to time, it is. However, you might wish it would trust the audience to discover the humor for itself.Matt BrunsonAugust 17, 2013
This campy adaptation of the DC Comics series has always been the odd title out in Wes Craven's horror filmography. It's all the better for it, since it's one of the few movies from this overrated auteur that I can personally stand.J.C. Maçek III PopMattersAugust 07, 2013
'Swamp Thing' may be more of a rubber monster creature feature than a truly accurate comic book adaptation, but it's a treat for fans of the movie and the graphic novels.Keith Phipps The DissolveAugust 06, 2013
Swamp Thing has many dubious qualities, but it clearly isn't a piece of product tested and polished to a blinding gleam, and the world is duller for not letting oddball efforts like this slip into theaters once in a while.John A. Nesbit Old School ReviewsJanuary 08, 2012
masterfully entertaining film on a limited budgetTim Brayton Antagony & EcstasyJune 22, 2011
Has a novelty value absent from the equally broken comic book adaptations of 20 years later.David Nusair Reel Film ReviewsMarch 12, 2011
...a disappointingly thin endeavor that seems to have been designed to appeal solely to young boys...Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema CrazedFebruary 09, 2011
A muddled genre confused mess of a film...
