    To the fan of ’80s slashers, this return to glorious excess is a beautiful thing.

    So can Freddy beat up Jason, or what? Let's just say that neither one would have stood a chance against Abbott and Costello.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

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

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

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

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • David Grove

    Visually imaginative and energetic.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    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.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    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.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

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

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    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.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    The setup is bad even by slasher-film standards: poorly acted, atrociously written and unimaginatively directed. But once Freddy and Jason have at it, the movie takes on a recklessly kinetic energy that finally delivers on its title's promise.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    Tremendous energy, outrageous humor, dazzling technical finesse -- and a numbing amount of violence, brutality, bloodshed and all-out savagery. It is downright depressing to think about all that vigorous cinematic artistry and expertise aimed so low.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    The basic formula of iconic supernatural beings slaughtering plucky teenagers continues with even more graphic violence.

    Variety Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Doesn't have any of the creepy suspense that graced the first "Friday" movies, and very little of the Daliesque dream imagery of the early "Nightmares." It's just a slam-bang succession of gross-out mutilations, played for giggles.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The sentimental novelty of watching two childhood antiheroes have at it dissipates once you realize the lugubrious lengths to which the screenplay must go in order to make that happen.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Brian Thomas

    This long-awaited monster mash should satisfy fans of the "Friday the 13th/A Nightmare on Elm Street" franchises.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    Despite oblique references to "Psycho" and "Children of the Corn," Freddy vs. Jason lacks the knowing wit needed to keep it afloat in an age when even the horror spoofs have been spoofed.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Jennie Punter

    Too much chatting, not enough chills.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Since there can be no suspense, the point is to enjoy the hewing of limbs and the severing of necks, to delight in chopped-off fingers and gouged-out eyes. The title characters are embodiments of utter evil, right?

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    The first "Nightmare on Elm Street" was wickedly surreal, but the wacky dream sequences were offset by the sitcomlike, almost satirical flatness of ordinary suburban life; that was the really scary part. Freddy Vs. Jason is innocent of such nuances.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Aside from a promising scene involving a cornfield rave and the pyrotechnic potential for grain alcohol, it drags along, taking a small eternity to set up a final showdown that plays more like a bloody pro-wrestling event than the stuff of nightmares.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This dumb, only intermittently (though sometimes even intentionally) funny sequel presumes that since almost everything else from the 1980's has come back, why not the cynosures of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" movies?

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The Hong Kong vet director, Ronny Yu, did a bang-up job in 1998 with "Bride of Chucky," but he can't do much for this one except keep it moving, light it scarily, and pump that plasma.

    Slate Full Review
  • Paul Farhi

    A kind of cinematic analogue of the Iran-Iraq war: It's overlong, it's hard to tell which one's the bad guy, and it's filled with lots of senseless carnage on both sides.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    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.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Formulaic hodge-podge that trades on a certain demographic's affection for the bogeymen of their formative years.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Mark Holcomb

    About as threadbare as a favorite childhood plushy. What's more, trying to keep the story line of strained meta-sequel Freddy Vs. Jason straight requires too much of a cogitative investment.
