Consensus: Though technically well-constructed, Friday the 13th is a series rehash that features little to distinguish it from its predecessors.

This film is so last-century.

If you're a die hard Jason fan like myself, check out the movie with popcorn and a group of friends. If not, sit this one out.

I'd say they did a solid enough job of resurrecting a simple scary tale for a new generation.

Worth noting: The title card of Friday The 13th doesn't show up until about 45 minutes into the film, which, all told, has to be a record.

Nothing really new here, except more blood. I was a bit let down from this reboot. It moved to fast and felt like a teen movie. I wish they would have focused… More
