Anyone at a fan convention will tell you that Freddy vs. Jason had the potential to be a horror classic; unfortunately it's ended up as just another slasher flick.

The fight is really cool when it finally comes, but it takes an hour and change to get through the undercards.

The frights, the archetypes, even the predictability of it all is predictable, leaving behind a dull, brainless novelty that makes more sense as a TV sweeps stunt.

Their final showdown will probably please fans, but everyone else will be wondering whether those 10 years couldn't have been more profitably spent.

Has doses of irreverent humor and a few inventive ways of slicing and dicing victims.

Freddy vs. Jason is absolutely critic-proof: firewalled, fortified and dug in like an Alabama tick.

Director Ronnie Yu knows exactly what's expected of him; he keeps the blood flowing and doesn't dawdle over the holes in the plot.

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

...[a] chintzy chill session...what you're gaining are front row seats to a couple of carousing combatants whose streaky cynicism are too watered down for us to care

When the dust settles in the final battle of Freddy vs. Jason, it's the audience that loses.

It's a Nightmare on Elm Street movie as badly written and performed as a Friday the 13th movie.

That the anti-climactic finish was withheld from advance reviewers to save the surprise is short for It's really, really stupid.
