Has a novelty value absent from the equally broken comic book adaptations of 20 years later.

...a disappointingly thin endeavor that seems to have been designed to appeal solely to young boys...

What Brit writer Alan Moore made work on the printed page, is as dumb as the plot synopsis makes it sounds.

[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.

The film is too lazy to provide any actual jokes with its send-up of the genre.

The whole thing is merely silly and not much fun.

'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.

Craven keeps the story moving at a sprint and writes some agonizingly (and probably intentionally) terrible dialogue.
