Default Freddy Vs. Jason (2003)

I know it's been a few years since FvsJ came out, but the tremendous letdown of the whole project still doesn't sit well with me - What could've been a terrifically creative and cool film ended up being a stunningly stupid, pandering, and insulting final product.

The film seems to enjoy a moderately positive reputation among fans, but I just don't get it - The previous films in both franchises weren't loaded with crap like Rn'B stars (that Destiny's Child chick) pop culture fads (Jay clone with the stoner character, Jack Black clone with the fat jock, right down to looks and mannerisms), and stupid "cutting edge" visual tricks (Ronny Yu... ugh).

The older flicks will never be viewed as "great films" by any means, but part of the charm rested in their simplicity, and in the fact that they weren't trying soooo hard to hit a target audience like FvsJ was.

I absolutely hate it. It's cheesy and laughable. It makes "Jason X" look good. Their 'fight' was also a badly staged WWE castoff match too.

I thought it was alright....I mean,,,how could you really go into it with high expectations.....it would be REALLY hard to come up with a believable good story,,,,,so they took the safe route and made it campy so when it gets made fun of well,whatever i guess.....all there is to it. I mean,,,,maybe someone has a better idea of how it coulda been "taken seriously"?


Ya see,,,,freddy was a janitor at crystal lake and he watched jason drown so when they go to hell he seeks revenge??oh yah,,,that woulda been quality....

They battle for supremacy in hell.....?yah,,,that'd never work,,,,i mean,,,they don't gots shit on pinhead......

i mean,,,if they're going to hell,,,,he'd be driving the car...

i lost it ,,what was i sayin again?

oh yeah,,,it was alright!

It's fun, and nothing to take that seriously. I like it, it stays true to the spirit of both franchises.

it's great in terms that it's so bad, cheesy and predictable that it's fun to laugh at. but what else do you expect to get from these two guys in a versus movie? nobody can complain that the fight scenes were corny, or that the dialogue and acting was bad. it's fucking supposed to be! or at least, expected by anyone who has seen the two franchises.

Loved it! I took it for what it was: a tribute to both franchises and an entertaining blast.
