Fun, entertaining and highly enjoyable (by kannibalcorpsegrinder)
Retrieving a relic of Jason Voorhees frozen in time, a group of students studying in the future find themselves stalked through their space-station home by the reawakened killer and must use the technology of the time to stop him.This was an absolutely fantastic entry which was one of the more enjoyable and exciting entries in the series. The best part of this is the extremely high-impact action scenes, which generate the best times here, starting with the opening attack on the guards in the facility in rather fun fashion before the big chase that gets him frozen with her, while the retrieval <more>
and stowing him on-board gives this one some really good times along with the initial rampage through the ship resulting in a lot of cheesy goodness to come from having these scenes set in the futuristic landscape. The initial resurrection on the heating bed alongside the oblivious worker while the screwing couple signaling the true rebirth which spawns a brilliant, original death scene with the infamous face first into ice, then shattered on a counter-top along with the two soldiers playing a virtual reality game and don't know Jason isn't part of the game, then they allow Jason to kill them quite easily. The action is non-stop, and there are many impressive scenes with this one, as the inclusion of the soldiers allows for some incredibly fun times with a spectacular stalking scene in a cargo-bay that generates some fine deaths and great suspense as Jason uses a ton of creativity to his kills which allows the great shoot-outs with the soldiers as well to generate even more good times with this one. There are more, from the battle in the engineer's room to the numerous stalking in the lab where it gets some fun action and classic stalking scenes involved in here as well as getting the action requirements out very nicely. The gunfight in the corridor getting the cyborg into the proceedings on Jason is a standout, and Jason's continual sit-ups after being hit by the shotgun really makes the scene impressive. Also, the humor is here with a bit of subtle comedy here and there and a total tongue-in-cheek attitude, not just from the jokes but the goofy tone here with the look of Jason and Uber-Jason and his dealings throughout here. As well, the shift to outer space was a refreshing change of pace and a source of much needed originality here with all these changes giving this a rather unique change in appearance that suits the film's more Sci-Fi leanings perfectly. Coupled with a Jason that is absolutely menacing and scary and looks like he's having too much fun in the role and a few nice odes to the others in the series, there's not a lot wrong here. The biggest issue here comes from the apparent lack of logic here, most of which comes from the behavior of the characters. It's really hard to believe that Jason is fooled by a holographic representation of Crystal Lake that's not even a full-on trick with the edges exposed, yet he still takes time to destroy holographs of two women who look like they belonged in the first movie and allow the good guys to escape, which is the biggest example here. The plot line involving the idiotic professor who only wants to profit from Jason and his continuous assurance that Jason will get taken care of is quite lame, as well as the finale of Jason gets ridden like a surfboard as he's falling back to Earth. However, here the action tends to hide a lot of these issues and it's really not all that noticeable when they occur. All in all, it really only comes down to personal tolerance of the cheese to find any flaws here, since it's a lot of fun regardless.Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity, and a short sex scene.
I'm not a hardcore horror/slasher enthusiast, so I enjoyed this movie, thought it should belong in the comedy/horror section if there was one . A movie I could enjoy watching again. This is sort of a 'Jason meets Star Trek' blend, certainly not a typical horror film, no doubt hardcore horror/slasher fans are the ones giving it a rating of 1. I thought 'Uber Jason' was great, Lexa Doig is hot hot hot, the scene where Jason beats one topless camping chick with the other topless camping chick in their own sleeping bags in the VR room was hilarious! Some funny tongue in cheek <more>
one liners as well. More nude babes would have been nice, though :
The BEST In JASON Entertainment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (by jmcgee321)
JASON GOES TO HELL:THE FINAL Friday was a landmark to me, because they bring something fresh to the series. Flashforward 8 years later, me hearing JASON in space sorta bothered me a lot. I mean where's FREDDY V.S. JASON. I soon found out that this takes place after the battle, which explains the scratches on the mask. But what writer Todd Farmer and director Jim Isaac gave what I think is the best in the series and JASON entrainment.In 2010, JASON Kane Hodder has been captured and studied on for a while by now, only planing the perfect escape. When so everybody dies except for Rowan Lexa <more>
Doig , who freezes herself and JASON for the last 445 years. Now 2455, a school on a field trip from space has found both bodies and unthawed them. On there way to Earth 2, JASON awakes to weak havoc upon the ship, only to be rebuild to the ultimate killing machine...literary!This movie is not meant to take itself serious as the last one, but to have fun with what they got. It's death scene are among the best I've seen in a long time. My favorites are the freezing head and screw, although the gore is tone down since the last one. The relationship between the robot K-M Lisa Ryder and her creator Tsunaron Chuck Campbell is cute and funny, something missing since PART VI:JASON LIVES. Full of fun surprises and a kick a$$ costume JASON has when he becomes UBER JASON. You will also say this is the best one in the series. So view with an open mind as I did and you'll appercite it too!
A hugely entertaining blend of science-fiction and horror (by misbegotten)
I'm not really a fan of the Friday the 13th movies - in fact, I consider the first five films to be interchangeable, almost instantly forgettable, and pretty worthless. However, from Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives onwards everything starts to improve, and in my opinion it must be the only long-running movie series that actually gets better as it goes along.Jason X is my favourite film in the series: it works on all levels, as a slasher film, as a science-fiction movie, and as an action thriller. Just as the preceding entry Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday which I also enjoyed <more>
was a celebration of the '80s horror genre, with nods and winks to Halloween, the Nightmare on Elm Street series, The Evil Dead, The Thing, etc, so Jason X cheerfully includes elements from numerous sci-fi action movies, such as Aliens, The Terminator, Virtuosity, The Lawnmower Man, Robocop, and Predator. But it doesn't do so to rip those films off. Instead, the producers simply know that if you put Jason in a future setting, movie-savvy audiences are going to be annoyed if he doesn't encounter such sci-fi standards as androids, virtual reality, nano-technology, cyborgs, and space-marines.The producers even have the courage to play Jason for laughs towards the end of the film, as Kay-Em 14 takes him to pieces a terrific sequence!!! , plus the hologram scene where he's confronted by two hilariously stereotypical topless cuties. But the film never tips over into farce, and successfully ensures that Jason remains as menacing and lethal as ever.Full marks also to the writers and cast, for making the various potential Jason fodder candidates amongst the most well-rounded individuals in the series. One complaint often made against Jason X is that it lacks a strong Final Girl, but I think that's merely because so many of the characters register so strongly.
not as bad as people make it out to be (by turtlebleach)
When I saw the reviews for this movie all hope I had for this movie had been crushed then I saw the movie and I have to say I am confused why so many people hate this movie. It does have plot holes and it is pointless to put Jason in space but it is entertaining as hell. The movie is more or less a parody of the other Friday the 13th movies and it is very funny when it wants to be. My main problem with the movie is the bland and uninteresting characters which are just their to die. The only interesting characters are Bronsky and the android. The end is brilliant and is reminiscent of the <more>
other Friday the 13th movies. The kills are very uncreative. The only kill that is very creative and brutal is the first one Jason makes is space. All in all it is not for everyone but it is very entertaining and fun.
Alrighty now.. the long awaited 10th film in the legendary "Friday the 13th" movie series hits theatres and what is the result? If you liked the previous nine you will like this one, if the hockey masked machete wielding Jason Voorhees isnt your cup of tea then you should probably avoid the latest installment in the franchise. In this film, Jason once more played by stuntman Kane Hodder is placed in suspended animation and winds up getting thawed out on a spaceship some 400 or so years later to wreck havoc on a hapless group of hollywood newbies who decided to audition for this <more>
film. Actualy the cast is pretty good as this sort of thing goes and the producers decided to have some fun with the concept, throwing in everything from an obvious "Alien" inspired storyline to a "Terminatrix" babe played by Lisa Ryder, who like co-star Lexa Doig hails from the "Andromida" TV Series . Some funny bits with Jason and a pointed parody of the original film due to a virtual reality simulation ! make this one a step above most of the efforts in this series. So, until Jason rises again, this one is a keeper for fans of slasher movies worldwide. GRADE: B+
Highly entertaining 10th instalment of the Friday the 13th series of horror films. (by poolandrews)
Location: Crystal Lake Research Facility. Subject: Jason Voorhees. Status:Awaiting Cryogenic Suspension. Indestructible mass murderer Jason Voorhees Kane Hodder , who is thought to be responsible for over 200 murders, has been captured and is being held prisoner. Dr. Rowan Lexa Doig is planning to freeze Jason as all attempts to execute him have failed. Dr. Wimmer director David Cronenberg however has other ideas and insists that because Jason can regenerate any damaged tissue he is far to valuable to freeze. Before long Wimmer and his soldiers are all dead and Jason is again on the <more>
loose. Rowan manages to trap Jason into the freezing pod and start the process. Jason sticks his machete through the pods door, stabbing Rowan and causing a breach, they are both cryogenically frozen. The film then fast forwards over 400 years into the future to 2455. The Earth can no longer sustain life and is just a barren lifeless wasteland, a bit like some of the UK is now really. Humans now live on Earth 2. Professor Lowe Jonathan Potts and four of his students, Janessa Melyssa Ade , Stoney Yani Gellman , Kinsa Melody Johnson plus Azrel Dov Tiefenbach and a babe of a android called Kay-Em 14 Lisa Ryder find both Rowan and Jason while on Earth 1 for some reason I can't think of right now, and take them back to their spaceship called the 'Grendel'. They revive Rowan and introduce her to everyone including the other characters we haven't seen yet who are Waylaner Derwin Jordan and Kay-Em's programmer Tsunaron Chuck Campbell . They take Jason to a laboratory so a blonde babe of a student why were none of my fellow class-mates as beautiful looking as her? named Adrienne Kristi Angus, if you ever need a date Kristi drop me an E-mail! can conduct some experiments on him, and his eyeball. Soon enough Jason is up and walking around and kills Adrienne, shame that I thought she was a real babe and very easy on the eyes! Jason then kills Stoney and sets his sights on everyone else on board! Luckily it just so happens that besides a bunch of students there are also a platoon of heavily armed soldiers on board! But can even Sargeant Brodski Peter Mensah and his team of 'grunts', Kicker Barna Moricz , Briggs Dylan Bierk , Dallas a cameo by screenwriter Todd Farmer , Condor Steve Lucescu , Sven Thomas Seniuk and Geko Amanda Brugel stop the seemingly invincible Jason? Directed Jim Isaac I had a blast watching this. There are lots of sequences that I had fun with. The script by Todd Farmer never seems to take itself too seriously and moves along like a rocket. The space setting is different for the Friday the 13th films and overall I really liked it. The interior of the spaceship looked suitably futuristic with plenty of computers and bright neon lighting, the props were cool as well with some great over-the-top looking guns and I especially liked Jason's new shiny chrome ultra sleek medical machete. There are some cool kills as well, someone is impaled on a large drill and spins round as they reach the bottom, the total babe Adrienne who I wanted to survive or at least make it further into the film has her face frozen and then smashed to pieces and in a yucky scene she also cuts Jason's hockey mask off his face with a scalpel which reveals Jason's rotting face beneath, there are slit throats, people cut in half, decapitations, mangled bodies and someone has their arm cut off with a machete. This Friday the 13th delivers more gore than most of the previous instalments. I loved the scene where Lisa Ryder dresses up in skin tight PVC, arms herself with some serious firepower and battles it out with Jason, a scene that looks like it could have come straight out of the Matrix 1999 , but it's more fun here. The special effects are good, the CGI isn't always brilliant but it more than satisfactory for a relatively low budget film. The acting is OK, at least everyone manages to keep a straight face, and did I mention that Adrienne is a seriously hot looking young lady? David Cronenberg's cameo at the beginning is also rather cool. On the down side it becomes a little too silly for the last 20 or so minutes. I mean Jason flying through space and talking decapitated robotic heads? Overall I think this is a highly entertaining film that I had an absolute blast watching. As long as you don't take it too seriously this is a lot of fun. I'm a huge fan of Friday the 13th 1980 and it's numerous sequels and this is a good one. Highly entertaining, and definitely recommended if your in the right mood.
Not many films can make it to there tenth outing and do it with this much style. Jason X is of course the big nineties or should I say noughties? remake of the series but its done with such loving care and such a good sense of humour that anyone who enjoys good silly horror fun will love it. It's not terrifying but it has great jump shocks, imaginative deaths minor spoiler especially the frozen head one, and great little jokes. The film starts a few years from now in Camp Crystal Lake Research centre where Jason is being held. Unable to execute him this is where Jason has ended up but <more>
then of course some government people who think they can contain Jason turn up, ignore the cute scientist warning and do what they want. Anyhoo without spoiling it too much Jason and the women scientist end up cryogenically frozen and are then found by a group of teenagers on an expidition led by their professor a few hundred years later. The idea of putting Jason in space may sound silly but it is thoroughly enjoyable. This film is cool. Trust me.
This film is basically Jason in Space.This movie massively divided fans. Some loved the innovation but some hated it to such an extent that they viewed it as the worst in the series. Yes, they even hated it more than Part 5: A New Beginning.But I loved this movie. I even went to see it a bunch of times during it's original release.Theres so much to love. The claustrophobia of the spacecraft, the tongue in cheek humour, the nerdy aspects of the film's vision check out the eye operation on Jason and the way that injuries like severed limbs are remedied .Theres also an amazing cameo by <more>
David Cronenberg thats worth the price of admission alone.With this installment being based in space theres many nods to satify the most ardant sci-fi fanboys. Least not Lisa Ryder who was a star of Andromeda. Her android character is a great addition to the cast.Uber Jason is a sight to behold! And check out the liquid nitrogen kill. It's one of the best in the whole series.Highly recommended.
