    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Considering what the filmmakers had to work with, and the fact that it has all been done before, Freddy Vs. Jason isn't bad. And sometimes not bad is almost good. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Truth be told, the movie isn't among the worst sequels of this summer. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Connoisseurs of giant, gnarled chunks of charred flesh, rejoice! There's plenty of it -- or stuff resembling it -- in the slasher-fest convergence of two killer franchises. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Though a stickler might ask what's at stake in a fight to the death between two guys who are already dead, the hard-core fans aren't likely to be disappointed. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Witless, excessive and ultimately boring gore-a-thon. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    Succeeds as a guilty pleasure, a monster mash that clobbers the recent lackluster sequels plaguing both legacies. If only that were a higher compliment. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A surprisingly ambitious entry into a genre that felt bankrupt and over more than a decade ago. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Attempts none of the witty, provocative visual and metaphysical set pieces from any of the ''Nightmare'' movies. And it offers none of the real fright of the early ''Friday the 13th'' films. In fact, the movie is deeply, proudly unimaginative. show more

    The best way to sum up Freddy Vs. Jason is: good concept, mediocre execution. show more

    Aaron Hillis Premiere

    Are these iconic, antihero relics smartly satirized in a post-slasher, or is FVJ just more dated, third-wave trash? Disappointingly, it's the latter. show more

    Bad puns from Freddy as if from Bond, no speech at all from Jason as from Mini-Me. All in all, great film.
