Summary: Rumored and anticipated for years, the two biggest icons of the slasher genre finally meet in Freddy Vs. Jason, the eighth entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street saga and the 11th film in the Friday the 13th series, though with Jason X taking place in the future, it should be noted that the events of this film take place after the ninth film Jason Goes to Hell. And it is hell where Freddy Kreuger (Robert Englund) and Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger, donning the hockey mask for the first time in a controversial snub against series veteran Kane Hodder) finally become acquainted. Banished there for eternity, Freddy devises a plan to manipulate Jason into continuing his work, hacking up the teenagers of Elm Street. All goes well at first until Jason realizes he's been duped by "the dream master" and is none too pleased. Coaxed by surviving teenagers Will (Jason Ritter), Lori (Monica Keena), and Kia (Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland), Jason and Freddy descend upon Crystal Lake for a mano a mano battle royal. Helmed by Hong Kong director Ronny Yu (Bride of Chucky, The Bride With the White Hair), Freddy Vs. Jason features the director of the first Friday film, Sean S. Cunningham serving as producer. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

After a long ten-year wait, fans were finally given the team-up they'd been asking for in Freddy Vs. Jason, a heavily blood-soaked popcorn flick sure to please the masses no matter its D-level cheese factor. Back once again is Robert Englund as number one child-killer Freddy Krueger, this time echoing the sinister and dark sarcastic edge long-lost in most of the latter Nightmare on Elm Street films (not counting the under-appreciated New Nightmare). Needless to say, the glove slips back on perfectly, with Freddy chewing scenery with a maniacal glee sadly missed in his series' nine-year absence. The same can be said about everyone's favorite hockey-mask killer, returning here with a fresh new iconic look, thanks to six-foot-five, 240 lbs. ex-stuntman (and stunt coordinator on Jason Takes Manhattan) Ken Kirzinger -- a controversial bit of casting which caused overt fan uproar when veteran Kane Hodder ended up getting the boot, even though he was one of the driving forces behind keeping fans interest high throughout the years. Gripes aside, Kirzinger's one mammoth of a maniac who not only swings the machete right, but effortlessly makes a dynamic impact each time he hits the screen.

To be sure, when these two finally do go at it during their all-out brawl, thunder claps and so will the audience. Limbs are chopped off, blood sprays excessively, and countless bodies are thrown around (literally) in both the nightmare face-off and the real world duke-out that ends the flick. There's no denying the grisly mayhem that the filmmakers eventually deliver, it's just the first two-thirds of it that might reek upon closer inspection. With more time dedicated to inflating the script and blatant stereotypical characters than there ever needed to be, the fun and ingenuity of each series tends to bleed away to nothing. While some will unabashedly crave the ridiculous story arcs and dialogue that spews from the worthless teen fodder, others will sit back and just get annoyed at the misuse (and as far as Jason goes, disappearance) of the title characters. Making things worse is the truly dreadful casting, headed by teary-eyed push-up bra wonder, Monica Keena - yet another no-talent TV actress doomed to flunk out on the big screen. With acclaimed Hong Kong veteran Ronny Yu at the helm, Freddy Vs. Jason looks great, but is missing the visceral punch that his name is usually synonymous with. In the end, Yu's film is simply a midnight movie splatter romp whose blemishes will either be praised or vehemently hated for years to come - which, just like the eventual gore-filled match, you'll be placing your bets on 'till the very end. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
