Talk about not having the cash to fund your vision. This movie could have been awesome. It could of been a hell of a lot of fun. Could of, would of, should of. There's some things to like in this film, but unfortunately the bad far outweighs the good.
Kane Hodder returns and proves once again he was born for this role. His version of Jason is hands down the most intimidating. When he has someone in his sights, you just know it's going to end very painfully for them.
Seeing him in full costume in Times Square is quite the visual treat. Hands down the greatest shot of the film, if not the entire series. Watching him totally punk out the gang of thugs still draws a laugh from me to this day.
And as a huge Hodder fan, I have to say seeing him just manhandle Ken Kirzinger(the actor that replaced him in Freddy Vs. Jason) is a treat.
The jock dumbass decides to constantly punch Jason in the MASK. Jason's retaliation was the kill of the movie.
A young Kelly Hu plays a small part and she is damn easy on the eyes.
Unfortunately, that's about all there is to like about this movie.
Where the hell was the gore? Seriously, this movie is bone dry. I guess they didn't want to test the MPAA again. Fucking pussies.
Why call it Jason takes Manhattan when most of the fucking movie takes place on a fucking boat? They should of called it, "Jason Takes a Cruise."
Vancouver is NOT a substitute for NYC. Period.
The whole young Jason subplot tears Titanic sized holes in an already flimsy plot. Seriously, that would make her the oldest fucking teenager alive.
I didn't realize that toxic waste(never mind the fact that according to them it's running through the sewers) turns homicidal reanimated corpses into little children. And this is after the fact he gets some thrown into his face and it starts melting.
All in all, it's worth a watch, but mainly if you want a Jason Adams' Awfully Good time. Enough Jack Daniels and you'll have a fun time. Granted, you can have a fun time with enough Jack Daniels and a better film. So take that for what it's worth.
