Uh-oh-- looks like the 'Friday the 13th' franchise decided to take a more comedic turn here, more than likely in response to the darkly humorous mayhem of 'Friday's' greatest rival pop-horror phenomenon, the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' series. From the James Bond tribute in the opening credits to the Frankenstein-like reanimation of our fave slasher to the characters spouting some of the hokiest lines I've ever heard uttered in a 'Friday' flick so far, there was no way I was gonna take this load o' celluloid silliness seriously. Especially after our fave psycho's encounter with a group of paintballers. 'Course, I'd pretty much given up on taking any of 'em seriously after Part 2... but this I really Really REALLY can't take seriously! Ya know?
Adding to the cheese factor were the usual array of Jason-kills, many of which were ridiculously over-the-top and just plain unbelievable, I didn't really find 'em all that scary. Somewhat gruesome at times, but nothing all that frightful. Oh yeah, let's not forget the usual staples of Jason takin' out a buncha teenage camp counselors (including a few who invoke the 'Friday' franchise laws of Sex=Death and Pot=Death), And an ending that suggests that, in spite of his apparent 'death', out beloved psycho goalie ain't quite through yet (surprise, surprise)...
All in all, I found this go-round fairly fun to watch for the silly dialogue and overdone Jason shenanigans. So long as it's not taken seriously, it's a more than passable piece of entertainment.
