Bywater's native Seminole Indians believe the swamp will be bloodily revenged by its guardian spirit, a 'dark warrior', for its 'rape' by Frederic and son Jake Schist's oil-drilling, sold out by their own late chief Ted Sallis. The rig is illegally protested against by hot-head ecologists, who get blamed for vandalism on the site. New, outsider sheriff Kyle Williams suspects immediately local adolescent Billy James wasn't eaten during love-making there by a cayman but by a mysterious monster, which already made and soon makes new bloody victims in weird, inconsistent ways. Several people add to the danger.

It wasn't great, but it wasn't as bad as "Captain America."
As a die hard marvel comic book fan, I listed Sci Fi's showing of "Man-thing" as a must see. The film opens up like a low budget Friday the 13th movie. I can only assume it involved a couple having sex because the television cut was "choppy" to say the least.
As the plot started to unfold, it became increasingly clear Man-thing was not going to be a big part of this movie. Instead, the script chose to focus on a sleazy oil tycoon, a tree hugging hottie, and a green behind the ears sheriff. There was also a sub-plot involving alleged stolen proceeds from the sale of sacred Indian land.
If you are looking for a lot of cool shots of the monster, you will be disappointed. Aside from the occasional random killing, Man-thing isn't really seen until the film's finale. There also seems to be no rhyme or reason to Man-thing's murderous rampage. In several scenes he will only kill one of the parties while inexplicably letting everyone else get away. There is also a very out of place scene where an Indian allows himself to be killed for no apparent reason.
The acting in this film is on par with most B movies in the genre. I occasionally noticed some Australian sneaking into the actors supposed thick southern accents.
Overall I gave the movie a 6. It is entertaining provided you are willing to overlook the many plot holes. One final question, why doesn't anyone ever go into the swamp during the day?
