THE LAIR EXPERTS
Matt: I was so excited to see this film that I originally rated it higher when I first reviewed it. Then I saw a film called 'Aliens', and it all went downhill from there. I waited nine damn years for this sequel, and THIS is what they come up with? I cannot believe they got away with this without being sued. To hear writer Todd Farmer say it is "loosely" based on Aliens is absurd. I like Farmer and enjoy most of his work, but 'Jason X' is a damn near carbon copy of 'Aliens', except with Jason inserted in place of the aliens. My true rating is now a 2, but only because Kane Hodder kicked ass and really got to show why he is now an icon. Much like Part 7, he delivered some of the most memorable kills in the series. Aside from that, the special effects weren't very special (thanks Beavis), and the acting was subpar from the rest of the cast. Casting gorgeous women on the surface just couldn't hide the bad acting underneath. Even Harry Manfredini had a bad outing on this one, as his musical score was good for a sci-fi film, but not worthy of a 'Friday The 13th' film. I did like their use of Drowning Pool's song 'Bodies' in promotion of the film, but where was it in the actual film? That might have earned the film an extra point, but as it stands now, it is merely a 2. Excuse me while I go throw up. 2 out of 10.
A.J.: I knew there just wasn't something right about this movie the first time I saw it, and it only recently dawned on me. It was an exact replica of one of my favorite childhood movies, Aliens. I apologize to all the fans out there when Matt and I defended Jason X, but we finally see the light. Jason X sucks and if you don't agree with what we have to say, then just go watch Aliens and see for yourself. 2 out of 10.
