I thought it was pretty good for a slasher flick ... and I normally hate slasher flicks. (For what it's worth, my personal favorite in the "Friday" series is "Final Chapter.")
My girlfriend's too young to remember the early films in the series, so she rented the first six. After seeing those, her expectations for the new one were pretty low, but she loved it.
I liked how they fleshed Jason out ... the underground HQ, the lights, etc. Thought the actor did a good job, too. He seemed a lot more menacing than he has in a long time.
One of my favorite parts was the old woman with the dog. "Outsiders come, they don't know where to walk, they bring trouble. We just want to be left alone, and so does he!"
It seems like there was a lot of hate for this movie, but I don't get it.

I wasnt surprised with it at all, it was ok, but after nearly 30 years of movies and comic books( with some very interesting twists to the myth) i was expecting something a little more in plot then just another rehash of the same old stuff...but then again u can be judgmental to a movie that stayed true to its roots and respected them...mindless hack slash!!! The 80s rule!!!!
And yes i will be getting the dvd of course!!!

Ehh I saw it, it was okay, but in all honesty they didn't generate anything interesting.
Here's campers, here's Jason same story.
I just didn't feel it had any........life to it. To be honest even the reboot aspect of this film didn't carry well, aside from the 5 minute prolog this film could easily have been set ANYWHERE along the established F13 mythos, between one and two for instance, or between JTM and JGTH, or after FvsJ or before Jason X. There seemed no reason for a reboot.
And this coming from the guy that actually LIKED Jason X.
The one positive I do have to say is the kills were pretty decent. I'd rather watch the original to be honest. I feel the same about Zombie's Halloween.
I'm not saying its a bad movie, I just don't feel it was awesome.
And no I'm not jumping on the I hate a remake bandwagon...largely because its full, but the My Bloody Valentine remake was awesome, and so was the reboot of the Bond franchise.
This just didn't grab me. I'll wait until its marked down at Walmart to buy it. Which is sad cause I'm a huge Jason fan.

The main excuses I hear for not liking this one are these:
1. Jason runs
2. Is smarter
3. Throws a temper tantrum
4. Uses a bow and arrow
5. Too much sex/nudity
1. Jason ran in the first 3 films he was in as the killer so that excuse hold no water
2. Jason was never stupid contrary to popular belief. He knows how to set traps, place bodies in places knowing his victim will find them to scare and intimidate them and he know to cut off power or set off fire alarms to throw victims into a panic. Plus in part 4 he knew to take a gun and break it so it can't be used againt him.
3. I part 3 when Jason is looking for Chris (the main chick) in the barn, he becomes more fruserated when he can't find her and strats thowing stuff around seemingly in anger ala a temepr tantrum.
4. Jason used a harpoon gun in 3 mivies so imo, him using a bow and arrow isn't outside his realm
5. There's no such thing as to much nudity if the chicks are hot lol. Plus it's an F13 movie, with the exception of part 6, most F13 movies have at least 1 nude/sex scene plus imo the sex scene in the remake wasn't nearly as explicit as the one in the unrated version of Jason Goes to Hell and part 2 had full frontal so...
You will address me as COMMANDER!!!

I'll be getting it for sure, i'm big on Horror and War Films and 70's and 80's Horror is way better then any Horror or Slasher coming out these days.
Does anyone know when it will be released in Australia ?

this movie sucked. my wife and I were making fun of it from the first scene. my wife called after the opening that the sister would be alive, and at the end I joked as they rolled Jason into the lake that he should burst out and kill them, which, low and behold, he did!
not that we are geniuses, though, just that it is easy to predict stupid events for stupid movies. we also said the only thing that could salvage the movie would be if the brother and the one girl that helped him got married at the end, with Jason the best man. sadly that did not occur, but maybe if the filmmakers knew they were making a movie that was so ridiculously stupid that such a scene would actually not be out of place instead of mistakenly believing they were making a clever and frightening movie, they would have included it.
