Freddy vs. Jason's failure is disappointing, certainly...

You'll shake your head in disbelief at the nonsensical plot machinations and idiotic character motivations required to bring the two terror titans together.

Director Ronny Yu loses energy when it shifts to the dumb teen protagonists, and the script faithfully wallows in cliches so ridiculous they border on Scary Movie territory.

A fun-filled, action packed, horror spectacular...

it's safe to say the best work of these bad boys is decidedly behind them.

It's a cleverly wrapped gift to me and every horror fan like me, and I feel nothing but affection for it.

A fine post-scream Freddy romp

With Jason and Freddy at war over the souls of children, this great send-up of the genre is extremely fun and is faithful to the characterizations long-established for these villains.

Freddy vs. Jason is a pretty awful Nightmare film, but only a mediocre F13 film.

Dull blades. Saddles audiences with a buckets-of-blood mentality that deadens the spirit and drowns the film.

It's pretty obvious where director Ronnie Yu's sympathies lie. Still, he can't find a satisfactory resolution to that old teaser about an implacable force vs the immovable object: how to kill off your cash cow and milk her too.

The whole is greater than the sum of Freddy and Jason's crumbled limbs.

There is enough hacking, slashing, blood, and guts for three more Jason movies in this battle.

L'utilisation presque exagérée de la violence rehausse la qualité du film et l'ensemble est tellement mauvais qu'il en devient bon.
| Original Score: C+

Exists in a place beyond criticism. It hasn't got a plot to speak of, or characters; like the recent Rollerball remake, it in many ways verges on the experimental.

The gory money shots and the big brawl are the only real entertainment - although the effective one-liner occasionally pops up to keep you laughing in between decapitations.

Let the great, dumb, pointless debate rage on.
