4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic blu-ray transfer of Freddy vs. Jason (Alliance release)
Here's my impressions of the Freddy vs. Jason Alliance blu-ray release, released on January 6th, 2009

Video quality is fantastic. Detail was nice, print was very clean and blacks were pretty consistent all the way through. My only slight nit-pick with this transfer is that a couple of scenes looked a little soft, but I think that had to do with the actual look...

3.0 out of 5 stars i thought this one up back in the mid 80s.
this movie was excellent except for 2 very minor flaws.one is for a few minutes at the beginning jason is portrayed as somewhat of a mamas boy and the 2nd one is for about 10 seconds or so freddy intimidates a young girl who looks to be about 7.now i know hes a child murderer but he was never shown going after small children.i dont see anything the least bit entertaining...

Here's my impressions of the Freddy vs. Jason Alliance blu-ray release, released on January 6th, 2009

Video quality is fantastic. Detail was nice, print was very clean and blacks were pretty consistent all the way through. My only slight nit-pick with this transfer is that a couple of scenes looked a little soft, but I think that had to do with the actual look of the shots; not the mastering of this blu-ray. 4.5 outta 5

Audio (5.1 DTS HD-MA) was nicely done. I remember the 5.1 Dolby EX mix on the DVD being really good. This new lossless track is even better. Surround use is nicely done. Bass is good. Dialogue was clear for the most part. At one part where the kids are in the hospital looking for the hypnocil, the main center speaker/channel sounded kind of dull. Other than that, it was a great mix. 4 outta 5

No special features

5.0 out of 5 stars Transfer quality of the Alliance Atlantis Blu-ray edition, Dec 15 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is about the Blu-ray from Alliance Atlantis Canada.
For the disappointed customers that already own the Blu-ray box from Warner Bros with the lame copy of Freddy vs Jason, you have to know this edition is a totally different transfer done by Alliance and is by far superior than the awful Warner Box version... And for the French Canadian customers this edition contains a beautiful french track (dubbed in quebec of course) instead of the Warner Box that has none (french track and even fr sub)!!
This is the details:

- Freddy vs Jason (from Warner bluray box)
picture: 7 / 10
sound: 7 / 10 (Dolby True HD)
french: no french track
foreign: Spa, Por, Ger (Dolby 5.1)
subtitles: Eng SDH, Spa, Por, Ger

- Freddy vs Jason (from Alliance canada)
picture: 10 / 10
sound: 10 / 10 (DTS MA 5.1)
french: 9 / 10 (DTS MA 5.1 - dubbed in QC)
foreign: no foreign language tracks
subtitles: Eng (no SDH), Fre

Hope this review can help some disappointed customers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining enough for the die-hard fans expect for some flaws., Oct. 12 2012
"Freddy Vs. Jason" is certainly an fun guilty pleasure, especially if you love the "Friday the 13th" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" series. The highlight is getting Robert Englund as "Freddy Krueger" is always a plus. There is a new actor playing "Jason Voorhees" in this one, since New Line Cinema wanted an new actor to play "Jason". Since it was originally played by Kane Hodder four times! Perphas Hodder was the only one, who truly taken the "Jason" role seriously. But the new "Jason" plays him well and it is played by stunt-man Ken Kirzinger. But the tricky part of this movie is actually the script. Which the movie always has its highs and lows, nearly non-stop. Mostly is due to terrible dialogue at times and Director Ronny Yu unnecessary uses of slow motion in some of the better horror sequences. But the director certainly makes up for style in the story's weak areas. Since Freddy has to bring back to Jason to life, since no one remembers Freddy in Springwood. By bringing Jason back, Freddy thinks people will remember him somehow! It is odd storyline for sure! Doesn't make alot of sense but fans of the two franchises won't mind.

Blu-ray has an sharp anamorphic (2.35:1) Widescreen 1080P transfer and an strong Dolby 5.1 TruHD Sound. Blu-ray has all the special features from the 2-Disc DVD Set. If you want more trivia for this one, you can read Crystal Lake Memories and watch "His Name was Jason" and especially "Never Sleep Again" documentary. "Freddy Vs. Jason" is actually an fun movie to watch. I like it enough, despite some serious flaws and awful dialogue. The actors in the picture are better than expected. Monica Keena makes an great heroine and Jason Ritter, who truly looks like his late father John Ritter in a nice supporting role. There is another Blu-ray release from Alliance with an DTS 5.1 HD Sound, it is certainly stronger than the Dolby 5.1 TruHD Sound but it has no special features. Super 35. Grade:B+ for the movie. Picture Quality and Sound Quality:A-.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hack and Slash fest in the ultimate showdown!, Feb. 18 2005
By 
Robert Badgley (St Thomas,Ontario,Canada) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Freddy Vs Jason (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
I don't know why Ken Hodder wasn't in this picture(it is a shame) but Ken Hirzinger does a very credible job in portraying everyones' favourite camp hackmeister Jason Vorhees.
And of course there's no one out there that could ever play everyones' favourite slashman Freddie Kreuger but Robert Englund.Without overstating it he really "owns" the part.
This movie ably directed by chinese director Ronny Yu is a fine showcase for the title characters and they have plenty of on screen time to show us all that they haven't lost their touch one bit.Mr.Yu keeps the movie flowing along at a good pace and he enhances many a scene giving them a fuller and more interesting dynamic than might have been handled by other lesser directors.
The final climactic showdown does not disappoint one iota.It's a gorefest even I found myself wincing and turning away briefly from periodically.
I think everyone at New Line cinema should be proud of this film.Robert Shaye,the head honcho,has been particularly picky over the years regarding scripts for all the Freddie movies.He is one of the very few people in any studio who has actually welcomed input and discussion from the fans of his Nightmare franchise.....and that goes for the creator Wes Craven also.
Also all involved have gone to great pains to keep Freddies' character consistent from the first picture to the last.And they have continued this with their latest entry.The character of Jason has also,from what I can see,been treated in the same respectful manner which makes this picture even more of a delight to watch.
In conclusion this film is a very worthy successor to all previous Jason and Freddie movies from the past.And it will definitely not disappoint any fans casual or hard core at all.I can smell sequel...and can't wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars FREDDY VS. JASON VS. FANS, Aug. 12 2004
By 
This review is from: Freddy Vs Jason (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
BEING A HUGE FAN OF THE NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET SERIES, I COULDNT HELP BUT FEEL A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED WITH THE MUCH AWAITED FREDDYVS.JASON. I LOVED THE FIRST HALF OF THE MOVIE AND FOUND MYSELF SURPRISINGLY AND PLEASANTLY FEELING LIKE I WAS WATCHING ONE OF THE CLASSIC NIGHTMARE MOVIES. HOWEVER IT STARTED TO GO DOWN HILL WITH THE PARTICULARILLY BAD PERFORMANCES OF MONICA KEENA AND JASON RITTER. KATHERINE ISSABELLE AND DAVID KOPP WERE CLEARLY THE ONLY ACTORS WHO WERE TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY, WICH IS A SHAME AS THEY DO NOT HAVE THE LEAD OR EVEN EXTENSIVE ROLES IN THE FILM. WHILE THE BEGINING OF THE MOVIE SUPERBLY REVISITS ELM STREET, THE SECOND HALF LABOURS ALONG WITH A CRUMMY FRIDAY THE 13TH STYLE DIRECTION AND WE THE VIEWERS START TO WONDER IF THIS MOVIE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED FREDDY USES JASON. THOUGH THE TWO MADMEN DO EVENTUALLY BATTLE IT OUT IN A PRETTY IMPRESSIVE FIGHT, WE WERE PROMISED A CLEAR WINNER WICH SURPRISE SURPRISE IS INDEED NOT THE CASE HERE. RONNY YU CERTAINLY KNOWS HOW A FILM SHOULD LOOK, BUT UNFORTUNATLY DOES NOT KNOW HOW CRUMMY HIS LEADING ACTORS OUR AND IS CONTNUOUSLY INTERUPTING A PLOT LINE THATS TRYING TO TAKE OFF, BUT CANT WHEN IT KEEPS GETTING INTERRUPTED BY BAD PERFORMANCES. ULTIMATELY CHANCES ARE IF YOU ARE A FAN OF EITHER VILLAN YOU WILL FIND THIS ENTERTAINING ENOUGH, BUT HARD CORE FANS WILL FEEL A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Spin-Off of the Nightmare/Friday films., July 17 2004
This review is from: Freddy Vs Jason (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) is been dead for years in the Real and in the Dream Wolrd. Since Freddy is Literally and Forgetten in Hell, Freddy has a plan to bring back Crystal Lake Serial Killer-Jason Voorhees (Ken Kirzinger) to Life in the Real World. Freddy thinks by bringing Jason back to life to bring Fear on Elm Street Kids and making Teenagers remember Freddy again. Since Jason is an Instant Killer Machine, He isn't willing to Step Aside. Now with a Terrified Town in the Middle, Freddy has to find a way to kill Jason by going his dreams before Jason takes the Elm Street Kids over. A Scared Teenager (Monica Keena) finds a way to bring Freddy to Reality from her dreams, So Freddy and Jason enter into a Horrific and Bloody Showdown.
Directed by Ronny Yu (Bride with White Hair, Bride of Chucky, Formula 51) made an entertaining Spin-Off to the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" Series. Englund, who played Freddy Krueger for the 8th Time seems that he had a Blast Making this Film. Kirzinger replaced Kane Hodder, which Hodder Originally Played Jason Voorhees in the last Four Friday the 13th Series. Kirzinger is Good as the New Voorhees. Sean S. Cunnigham, who produced the Original "Friday the 13th" is back producing this film. The film also stars:Jason Ritter (Which Jason's Father-The Late:John Ritter also worked with director-Yu on Bride of Chucky), Kelly Rowland (R&B Singer from the Group-Destiny's Child), Lochlyn Murno (Scary Movie) & Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps Trilogy).
DVD has an Sharp Anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer (also in Pan & Scan) and an Superb-Dolby Digital 5.1 Expanded Surround Sound. DVD has an engaining Commentary Track by the director-Yu and actors:Englund & Kirzinger. Disc Two has Deleted Scenes with/without Commentary by the Director and Executive Producer-Douglas Curtis, Many Behind the Scenes Feautrettes, Music Video, DVD-ROM Content and More. This film has an Strong Music Score by Graeme Revell (The Crow) that pays Tribute to the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" Series. The film ended up being a Profitable Hit for New Line Cinema. Extremely Entertaining for the Fans of the Freddy and Jason Films. Watch for New Line Topper:Robert Shaye in a Cameo, which he's One of the Executive Producers of the Film (Which Shaye was Involved with Every Nightmare Film). Great Gory Fun all the Way. Super 35. Grade:A-.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Rampage, July 15 2004
By 
This review is from: Freddy Vs Jason (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
I grew up with Freddy Krueger and Jason movies.
Jason chased down and chopped up a bunch of dumb chicks that fall down and don't have the tendency to get up and run away. The same dumb chicks that go, "Bobby! Tommy! is that you?" When they know they're not there.
Jason has died plenty of times and just keeps coming back up.
Freddy on the other hand is a horrific comedian. He lurks in your dreams and has fun torturing you till your dead.
Many times Freddy has died to be sent back to he11. But he kept coming back.
Jason X and Nightmare on Elm Street 5 were the worst movies made.
Now this was a good match between Jason and Freddy. Jason whooped on Freddy. Freddy uses Jason like a pinball machine, hits him with a missle that made him fly off, and had a bunch of metal bars that impaling his body.
Jason whoops on Freddy Street Style, slices him up with his machete, throws him against the walls like a rag doll, socks him up, clocks him with the one and twos, blow after blow leaving Freddy at his worst. Jason holds on Freddy's head like Sub Zero pulling off heads.
Michael Myers ain't got nothin' on Jason.

3.0 out of 5 stars i thought this one up back in the mid 80s., July 8 2004
this movie was excellent except for 2 very minor flaws.one is for a few minutes at the beginning jason is portrayed as somewhat of a mamas boy and the 2nd one is for about 10 seconds or so freddy intimidates a young girl who looks to be about 7.now i know hes a child murderer but he was never shown going after small children.i dont see anything the least bit entertaining about children in danger.this is definately not for the littleones.it is the last of 8 freddy movies.i think it is a toss up between it and #3 for the best frddy film.freddy exists because people were scared of him.he needed thier fear.the town took all the kids to the loony bin and erased freddy from the records.so he went to hell and pulled out jason to go kill for him.the people would assume it was him and hed be back in buisness.it worked long enough to get freddy back.he got jealous of all the attention jason got and the many many fight were on.in previous freddy and jason films,the deaths were quick,but in this one freddy and jason have epic confrontations.it is an excellent movie but if youre a big fan,youll figure out when and where each combatant is dominant.i think the end was a bit of a bummer too.as for the future?whose to say?jason is supposedto be good for 13 films,but the space one sucked.the freddy's new nightmare kind of blew too.maybe hollywood should qiut screwing around and think about a film people want to watch.the older parts were way better in both sets.

2.0 out of 5 stars Annoyingly Stupid, July 5 2004
This review is from: Freddy Vs Jason (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
So far, we have about 10 Friday the 13th movies and 7 Nightmare On Elm Street Movies. So, now, Freddy vs. Jason is the final movie of all the series, right? WRONG! That is all I am going to say, so i dont spoil anything more for you people who think that you will want to watch this pathetic horror movie.
A group of teenagers start to be haunted by the evil freddy krueger, who soon relizes he is not powerful enough to kill people in the dream world. So for some reason, he decides to summon the retarded serial killer, Jason Voorhees, so that Freddy can become more powerful. As time passes on, Freddy Kruger becomes more powerful, but soon starts to relize his plan is failing, because Voorhees is doing all the killing. The final showdown takes place at camp crystal lake, Jason's home.
In this movie, there are lots of impalings, a cut off head, a machete imapling a girl on a tree, a ripped off nose, a girl with her eyes gouged out, a spear goes through jason, a body getting cut in half, a hand through the chest, bloody cuts and scrapes, a group of people with rotted skin and missing eyeballs, a girl is being raped, while she has passed out, and than is impaled on a metal stick * so is the man that is raping her* and is thrown, a guy gets is neck twisted in a disgusting way, a womens cut off head is impaled on a stick and yes, of course, there is more. What do you expect when you put the two most disgusting killers together in a movie? TONS OF GORE!
So, my final words, Watch at your own risk!
