The premise of Jason X is silly but strangely believable.

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

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
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.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
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."

New York Post

By Megan Lehmann
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.

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

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

It will come as no surprise that the movie isn't scary. But here's the real damn: It isn't funny, either.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
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.

Chicago Sun-Times

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