If there is anything that Jason Takes Manhattan has taught me, it's… MoreIf there is anything that Jason Takes Manhattan has taught me, it's how full of bottom feeder material the entire franchise is.
I mean really, this is not only the worst Friday the 13th movie of the entire franchise, but it's also the most laughable. It lacks tons of logic, is completely incompetent, & I have no idea what the hell the director was doing throughout the movie.
I sat through every Friday the 13th movie during AMC's marathon of the franchise (I wanted to watch The Walking Dead, but this crap was on & there was also nothing else to watch during then before we got a DVR so I could watch the better stuff), & they are all the same crap (I missed one, though). So I'm just wondering how is it that this franchise has some following & adoring fans. Yes, Jason is rather kick-ass, but he isn't that great to begin with, in fact he's just a simple-minded buffoon, just like his movies.
As I said, all of the movies in the franchise are the same plot formula & script, & they all just get worse with every installment (except for the Bay reboot which was slightly better than them, but nothing too great to say the least). We get a cast of nobody's & no-one-cares-about characters. The main character & the side character are introduced, & there, the rest of the characters will obviously get brutally killed by Jason, & the plot just remains the same.
But Jason Takes Manhattan not only repeats everything I just said, but it also just does them worse & it almost feels like some parody of the franchise.
Firstly, the good majority of the film doesn't even take place in Manhattan, but some shitty cruise ship. Secondly, the characters in here are all half-witted imbeciles; not to mention that the main character has some fear of water (oh how hilarious it is that she had a room beneath the ship). And thirdly, the film's execution is a joke. One big hilarious joke.
There is no directing, no style, no substance, no quality cameras, no listenable dialogue, no characters, no brains, & no fun. How this movie even managed to be cooked up & released into theaters is beyond me (though it hilariously flopped).

And after the success of "Vampires Sucks" thanks to all the idiots who paid to go see it, Seltzer & Freidberg will still continue their brain damaging assaults of this garbage.
And go ahead, try & throw in the "You're taking a movie that only tries to get cheap laughs too seriously" or "Grow up & get a freakin' sense of humor!!!!1111!!" cards at me; it will only tell me that the people who are actually trying to defend these guys & their atrocious films are nothing but absolute retards.
