ANOTHER FvsJ REVIEW
Ain't It Cool News posted yet another Freddy vs Jason review today. You can read the entire review below...be warned though, it does contain SPOILERS!!
'Its taken me a bit to get this done but i wasnt sure other reviews had posted online yet. spoilers follow so be prepared. im happy to report that FREDDY VERSUS JASON is not nearly the catastrophe it could have been. it seems like the buzz online was shitty, but the crowd i saw it with loved it. i know id want to know all the details so here goes.
I was a last minute joiner through dumb luck at the screening on Thursday (in Redondo). im a big horror fan and more of a FRIDAY THE 13TH fan and i was pumped to see this puppy. I've followed the ups and downs (kelly from destiny's child? no kane hodder?) of the project for what feels like forever and was cringing when they hired Ronny Yu. i hated BRIDE OF CHUCKY with a passion and FORMULA 51 sucked hard. however im happy to say that he has redeemed himself in my eyes BIG TIME. the movie was everything i could've hoped for with more red stuff than ever before. thank you, thank you, thank you! the new Jason is, i think, the very best one yet. i have a hard time saying that cause i love kane, but after seeing the new guy (what is his name?) i think it was time for a change. hes a much badder Jason in this one and i hope we can see him in the role again. he gets to dominate the kills and has a few classics. there is a cornfield party that he slices and dices and he and Freddy get to split a kill in.
The final battle actually takes place at camp crystal lake, where Jason and Freddy have the best fight in horror history. its like watching the monsters on speed. people were going nuts. you see a lot of retarded jason and even normal freddy. there is aboslutely no tommy jarvis, but heather langenkamp gets a shout out. they had a montage with clips from previous freddy movies but none from Jason's so that pissed me off a little. i was shocked to see mrs. vorhees appear (in an unexpected way) so it seems like this movie has details for the real fans to enjoy. its basically a big bloody fight that will leave fans of both guys (and gore in general) satisfied.
I didnt really like the ending which was a groaner. otherwise it was a really good time and just what i was hoping for. robert englund fans will be totally satisfied. hes got some great lines and can play freddy in his sleep. lets hope they dont drop the ball and actually push the movie unlike JASON X. we'll find out in august. and where is the trailer?? the movie is out in august and we havent seen anything. i have a bad feeling this one may not get any support. New Line - the movie was good! give us the marketing push we want! this is a dream movie for so many of us!! dont let us down!'
