After a 25-MINUTE-LONG PROLOGUE, with barely any relevance to the actual movie, it's pretty much Jason hunting down a series of tropes in minimally-creative ways. What's more, they sort of tried to cram the plots of all three of the first movies into this remake. There's the bit about Jason's mom, a period where Jason wears a bag over his head, and the discovery of the hockey mask. And nothing new or creative is made.

God how unoriginal this was. My Bloody Valentine 3D was the first film since SAW to actually be ORIGINAL. Hell it was even a remake too! Something every other horror film now a days just can't seem to be. Friday The 13th is no excepetion. Grade: D Plus

Porzadny remake. Poprawny pod kazdym wzgledem, ale jednak nic ponadto. Dla fanow serii (bo film zawiera w sobie motywy z kilku czesci) - obowiazkowo.

Totally unnecessary remake and boo! to making Jason a little bit "understandable" by making him a victim too. Decent effects can't even save this.

really way, way better than it has any right to be. if i'm being totally honest and free of nostalgia, the first 30 minutes are pretty much the best in any friday the 13th movie.

It's simply the first few Jason-based installments of the 80's condensed and repackaged for a new generation of fans. It's a fair enough reimagining of the Ft13 mythology, though it did feel bland at points. I suppose if I knew nothing about the series prior to this film, I would think it was awesome. However, a lot of the original plot holes that plagued the original series remain unresolved, and that seems lazy. Overall, however, it was fun, so it gets an OK score.

Well certainly not as bad as one would expect, this is a much better experience than what I thought it was going to be. Lots of nudity, and the girls who get naked are fucking gorgeous, VIOLENT kills, and Camp Crystal Lake are all here, even a bit in the beginning with Jason's mom, which the writer's said was going to be scrapped and thankfully was not. Derek Mears's version of Jason holds up, though he's not Kane Hodder. Marcus Nispel did a better job with this than Texas Chainsaw thankfully.

Characters don't behave like humans, they behave like terrible assholes. Dialog exists only to produce a bigger asshole or move the plot forward. There are some excellent scenes of suspense that get ruined by shaky cam. All in all a terrible reboot that ranks equal to Friday the 13th part 8: Jason Takes a Cruise to Manhattan.

It's your typical slasher. Teens have premarital sex, do drugs, then die in gruesome fashion. It does nothing new to the series except this time, Jason runs (which I liked) and a couple of other minuscule things. The ending though, was excellent. If you don't mind this simple formula, you'll feel right at home.

platnium dunes again..this time they try to re do Jason Vorhees...how much more can Jason do..he s been to hell, he fought freddy and he went to space....now he is re born and can run and is also a stalker and kidnaps people...this movie is not the movie it could have been..what about Jason vs Zombies...I think if you ignore the majority of it and concentrate on the few decent kills...you may enjoy it somewhat

"Generic", "bland" and "by-the-numbers" all seem like understatements. This is an ABC-slasher for the new generation with loud thumping noises, (lots of) big, bouncy titties and editing so rapid, you miss half of the shots. Yeah, there's gore - but what's the point when you cut away from it after 0,2 sec? I'll take the ridiculously funny "Jason X" or the campy oldschool charm of "Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan" any day!

Rich douchebag was great Didn't include the classic cha-cha-cha before the kills. Black guy was completely White, sellout, should have been the first to die. Fake tits, enough said (except the last rack) First set of kills a waste, served no purpose. All the kills lacked tension, that was the best thing about the early films. Bow & Arrow, Jason??? Was waiting for him to pull out a slingshot lame! Not Jason Vorhees . Whack ending, Cop out!

For 2009 so far, this impossibly generic slasher remake is the definite source for titties, gore, psychopathic killers wielding machetes and of course, chinese marijuana addicts, and that's saying a lot due to My Bloody Valentine 3-D being out right now. Still nothing new is crapped out from Michael Bay or Marcus Nispel's ass and we're left with a cheap-thrilled, unclever mess of a horror movie. Still reminds me of the swinging 80s though, which is good. Also who can resist the opening?

I enjoyed this movie, sure. It has some really serious, glaring flaws though, namely that it brings nothing to the table that the original friday the 13th movies didn't. What is the point of just remaking a movie like this with modern day characters? It falls prey to all the shortcomings of the slasher genre and makes me sad for the "future" of this genre. Where's the originality that spawned monsters like Krueger or Scream?

Pretty bad, even for the horror movie genre. Features two ultra-predictable fake openings, followed by a series of kills, which were pretty much telegraphed from the beginning. Lacked innovation, even within the genre.

I was never impressed by the original and this one was about as enthralling, well written and interesting. Bunch of kids, who talk to themselves excessively beyond all reason, do things their parents wouldn't want them to and get systematically murdered by a super human psycho. This is a terrible movie in every sense of the word.

A faster stronger Jason hunts down a group of young adults. The new and improved Jason also knows how to use a bow and arrow. Jason was always the machete wielding maniac who could come out of nowhere. There were a few good chuckles from Aaron Yoo and some gory deaths, but in the end was just another excuse of a film to have horny teenagers having sex and being predictably executed one by one. The faster stronger Jason did nothing to improve this movie, and neither did the young cast to be fair.

As far as remakes and reboots go, this one was pretty okay, it works. There's a refresher on Jason's origin and some decent references to the first few movies. That said ... it's not like there were really high goals set to accomplish a good remake/reboot. It seems more like Jason is being reintroduced to the modern target audience (and giving the viewers an updated stock of target victims).

I just realized I watched this movie on a Friday the 13th, what a coincidence!! But anyway, the movie sucks, as expected - although sometimes there is a well done atmosphere of fear and suspense and, I have to admit it, you get a few good scares (thumbs up that Jason runs now!). On the whole I agree with Ebert: this is probably the best movie of the series.

Loved this movie,sure I could b!tch about how Jason being a young boy in'80 screws with other established timelines but if writers don't care why should I ???...He's smart sets traps amazingly fast & is prone to fits of rage (just like me) ...my only real gripe with this movie is Jason kidnapping Whitney,I don't care how much she looks like his mom (My Jason wouldn't do that he'd kill her or she'd manage to kill him end of story;(Well accept for the whole cryptic double ending)
