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.
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.
This was much better than I thought it was going to be and it had some decent kills and some great moments. Starts off pretty well paced and it keeps going on from there. Micheal Bay walked out on this movie. That makes me laugh.
It's a shitty film, of course, but whether or not it's an entertaining movie is in the eye of the beholder. It's impossibly generic (even for a slasher) but it's got the holy trinity of tits, gore, and Jason killing people, and if that's enough for you to have a good time, more power to ya.
it has been a while since i have seen a decent slasher, the last being the scream trilogy. This movie reminds me of when I was a kid and covered my eyes because that is what I was doing in this flick. Its scarey, funny, sexy, somewhat smart (on jasons behalf) and the blood and sex is back and better then ever which beats the 70's bush we were plagued with before. I truely believe this is the best one, even surpasses the original, but it is still not perfect.
Quite an effective remake. What do you expect from a Friday movie? The kills are brutal, the atmosphere is pretty decent, has some actual funny dialogue and the functional nudity gets two bloody thumbs up. It won't reinvent the genre, but it's a fun ride for the not tóó critical viewer. Making Jason more cunning was a good move too.
Was never a fan of the originals, so was hoping this would be a clever self-aware reboot of the franchise. It isn't. It has some lovely boobs. That is literally the only positive thing I could find about it. Somehow they rebooted it to be even duller and more cliched than the not-very-good originals.
My mind subtly picked up that the minorities (the black and asian guy) in the movie got the most gruesome and painful deaths. I don't know what that was for, and I mean it's REALLY obvious, everyone else gets a quick retard slash to the head from Jason, but these two get these slow, drawn out, torturous deaths. It's something that adds to the movie, makes me feel uncomfortable, but everything else about the movie is just bland, very generic and a hollow, unnecessary addition to the series.
As it passed by me, I wondered "Why is it so hard to make a decent one of these? They have been at it for 30 years, couldn't they find a working formula?" A few cheeky moments here and there, but it is below average, especially when you consider that they can lean on a franchise with 7-8 movies.
