The film itself is very interesting and intense. The alien thing looks impressive, especially when you realize that it's not graphics. Unfortunately, the logic of the heroes is lame in some places.

Further spoilers

The ending is illogical. Macready said that we should burn everything here so that this creature doesn't freeze, and in the end, when he met with Charles, he said that the test wouldn't change anything. Charles may well be an imitation, freeze, and everything will start over sooner or later. Why not take a test or, in the end, just burn each other, since you're going to die anyway?

@shrftdnw: Well, look on YouTube, who eventually became something, I won't spoiler here, but one of them was Something, and the other understood why. The director himself pointed to the correct ending with his shots, it was necessary to understand this, that's all. The film is brilliantly cool.

The son looked at it and said: Is it 1982? I don't believe it!
It looks modern even now.
In one bottle: fiction, horror, detective. Keeps the whole movie in suspense. Music also contributes to this.
Sometimes you want the film industry to forget about computer graphics, and, as in this film, make the same plausible special effects.
