    The premise of Jason X is silly but strangely believable. show more

    A moviegoer's only defense against Jason is to avoid theaters showing this gruesome and derivative movie. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    If the 10th "Friday" sounds like the first "Alien," it's strictly intentional. Todd Farmer's script rips off that classic sci-fi horror film, replaces the acid-based monster with the hockey-masked Jason, adopts the self-mocking attitude of "Scream" and lets the heads, arms, legs and torsos fall where they may. show more

    Jason X conjures up more giggles than scares, assuming you make it through the first 15 minutes. show more

    There's a hint of nostalgia toward the end, with Jason encountering two nubile female campers in a virtual reality Camp Crystal Lake -- but it merely serves as a reminder that the franchise should have quit while it was ahead. show more

    This time the action takes us out of the usual campgrounds and girls in underwear into the realm of outer space, where no one can hear you screaming "Enough already." show more

    Too much of Jason X plays it straight, and that means boredom. Murder and mayhem of this sort quickly becomes monotonous. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Jason X sucks on the levels of storytelling, character development, suspense, special effects, originality, punctuation, neatness and aptness of thought. Only its title works. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The only chills to be found are courtesy of your theater's central air, and the suspense will come from the wait to see which disappointed kid in a hockey mask will be the first to slash the screen. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Despite the futuristic setting, which relies so heavily on GGI effects that it looks like a feature-length production concept painting, this film is painfully predictable. show more
