This movie SUCKED! The acting sucked, the plot sucked

The acting wasn't much different then any other Friday the 13th. The plot was just as basic as any other Friday the 13th. Actually, I didn't mind the plot. I thought it made sense. It was a plausable way to bring Jason in outer space. They did it more pluasable then Leprechaun 4.

and it was mainly boring. But this is what I did like about it.
. The kills.
. Kane Hodder as Jason

Jason X is the kind of movie that you ONLY watch for kills and the Jason character. You can't judge it with acting and plot and all that other criteria because it isn't made for that. It's made for a different purpose.

I didn't find this movie boring in the least bit. I found it very enjoyable.

I watched this again last night and what's really strange about JX is the movie's off the wall tone. It's all over the map.

For example, the movie starts off pretty serious with Jason killing the army guys and then being frozen by Rowan. But when the future stuff kicks in the movie starts to get a little weird and campy. The nipple twisting scene comes to mind. Then you have the dead serious cargo bay scene, which really drags now looking back on it. I was getting sleepy during that scene. And the rest of the movie is a mixture of the two tones combined.

JX is just one fucking weird movie that can't decide what it wants to be. And I think that's why I enjoy it, but it's definitely a flawed film. And I can understand why a lot of people hate it.

An odd film indeed.

I think it was pretty clear that the movie didn't take itself seriously and they meant to not. When Tod wrote the script, he wrote a serious and dark script, which I read. Then when the Cunninghams and Isaac got their hands on it, they decided to not take it as serious as Todd did. For better or worse it became a more self parody. I find it rather enjoyable. I mean face it, we watch Friday the 13th movie for Jason, kills, and naked women. Who the hell really watches them for acting range?

You don't judge a mini van for not being able to keep up with a jaguar on a race track. Why? Because it was not meant for that purpose. The same thing goes for film. You can't judge A Friday the 13th movie for bad acting or the lack of a thick plot, because it was not made for that purpose. You must first understand the purpose for a particular movie being made. They decide whether or not it fullfilled it's purpose.

i disagree with you both. i am not looking for award winning shit but i would love somebody that does not act like a robot or a total idiot. friday the 13th is way more then just women and death. sure jason is a big part. he is like 30% then their is atmosphere which is 20% then characters which is 15% and kills are another 20% and the last 15 percent is a mix of music and acting. why is nudity not on their is because it has no place. the only movies you should rate on the terms of nudity is if the movie is porn or their is no flare to the story that it needs some spiceing up. in my reviews i don't even think of nudity for the final rating but i do rate how good the scenes are in which is nudity. also i think acting is very important. if someone sucks really really bad, even if the rest of the movie is awesome, you feel the stain that is that one actor. but this is all IMO. when i see a movie i try not to do this but admittedly i do, i judge the movie on its negative qualities first then positive.

.... i like how the early entries  were dark and serious.. they had their brief funny moments(which helped people connect with the characters and film in general).. but the vibe of the films were scary....even pt 6.. though it was more comedic than the other paramount films..when the sun went down.. shit got spooky....


JasonX however just felt like a silly cheeze ride...even if it was a self parody.. it was a weak film IMO....the writing wasnt too good(filled with one liners and sarcasm)... nor was the acting ( personally i thought the acting in the paramount films.. although wasnt the best.. the characters had depth, charisma, and portrayed their  characters well)... sure i like tits and gore... but i actually like the STORY of the paramount films.. JV wandering from place to place... the tommy jarvis trilogy...and.. taking place on or around CCL... the JasonX story.. was too out there.. even for a JV film.....if it went more for like an 'Alien' vibe..  it would have been alot better..... but thats just my thoughts...

I get you with the dark and serious thing. As far as the writing, most of the one liners were added after Todd wrote the script, by the Cunninghams. As far as the storyline, I don't see any of the other as being any more in deth with characters or plot when Jason X with the exeption of Mrs. Voorhees, Tommy Jarvis, Tina, and Duke.

As far as your Alien vibe comment, I wish it did go for a more Alien vibe. It would have been a better movie.

Mostly in the first 4 films we got to know and enjoy the cast..in jasonX(for me) just kinda skipped over drawing us in with character depth(which I'm kinda a stickler for) and went the more shallow/comical route... The musical score was laughable(mostly when Kay-em is blowing JV to bits)... And from when UBER jason appears..to when the credits roll..is just silliness...but I do actually enjoy this film from time to time..JV is brutal yet stealth at the same time..and I really enjoy traveling through JVs body during the opening credits..and of course..the infamous frozen face smash Smiley.... I guess this film(and JGTH) is one of the JV flicks I watch purely for the kills..the tits...and hot chicks wearing slutty futuristic clothes lol

I went with my dad to see this one when it came out.  I loved it. But, back then I hadn't seen all of the other films I saw 1, 2(tv cut), 3, 5, 8, and maybe 7 &/or 6....and now that I have them all (in duplicate lol) I can say that yes it was a weak entry, but it was as mentioned earlier not made to be an extremely serious film. It had some pretty cool effects, and, of course, Kane Hodder was Jason. But it was mostly just filmed to make a little more money before FVJ was announced. It was a great experience because it delivered what the fans wanted......to see Jason Voorhees, who had been away from us for nearly a decade, Slaughter naughty teenagers (in space? lol). The movie was just made for an appetizer to a better film IMO. But let me tell you-I will never forget the first (and only) time I ever saw the trailer to Jason X. I was at my cousins house and it was really late at night. I saw Uber Jason, and heard "Bodies" by Drowning Pool. I was stoked! The movie didn't disappoint me.
But then again, I was like 9-10 years old.

The point is that I don't care what crap they throw at us, we (as horror fans) are junkies who will do anything for a quick fix. Even if the idea is kinda lame.

If they make it.....We will watch.

I guess with the direction the 2009 Friday the 13th movie took, we'll never see how Jason was captured in the first place. That's a shame, I think the franchise deserved a movie to fill in the gaps between the end of Freddy vs. Jason and the beginning of Jason X. I'm sure something pretty decent could have been hammered out from a plot perspective. Maybe Creighton Duke's son could have tracked him down on behalf of the U.S. Government or something.  Wink

In any case, I actually don't mind Jason X. A campy, fun little movie. It went out of it's way to give the franchise a different feel and I can't knock anybody for that decision, especially after seeing the ANOES remake, which came off as boring simply because it brought absolutely nothing new to it's franchise.

I also liked Uber-Jason. He looked pretty badass to me. If you're going to put Jason Voorhees in space, you might as well go the full nine yards and give him a sci-fi look to match the setting. That hulking, metallic body looked pretty intimidating and awesome. He looks like something out of a Terminator film.

You know what Shifty? I totally agree with everything u just said, especially the Terminator part of it, I felt the same way when I saw Uber Jason, and I was like Hell Yeah!! That was really bad ass right there, and I also like how they tried to go in a different direction. There's 2 things that I didn't really care for in the movie though and that was the score and some of the acting, but then again, the acting doesn't bother me too much, cuz it's not the first time a Jason flick has bad actors in it... But the musical score could've been way better though... Kane was awesome as Jason though, if they ever do make another Jason movie, I hope they bring back Kane! I liked Derek Mears as Jason too, but my all time favorite Jason's are Kane and CJ!

I find this movie to be thoroughly enjoyable.  It's the same formula we've grown accustomed to over the years, dropped into a new locale.

I never understood people who loved the old Paramount films but hated Jason X. It's got Kane Hodder killing off a group of annoying young people. That IS Friday the 13th. I guess it's the space thing that throws people off, and I understand that, but it never bothered me. Jason X is one of my more favorite entries into the series.

Uber Jason came off kind of anti-climatic since they showed it in the previews and the poster. Like Todd Farmer said they should've held off on that until the movie was released, but being that it was delayed for so long I guess that was the only marketing ploy Newline had at the time.
