The hockey-masked killer Jason goes cosmic in the tenth installment of the Friday the 13th series, Jason X. New Line has done an excellent job at making sure this 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer looks sharp, detailed, and very well produced. With solid black levels and bright colors throughout, this transfer should please any self-respecting horror film buff. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS Surround, and Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, all in English. Both the Dolby 5.1 and DTS mix are in full bombastic order with multiple uses of directional effects throughout the movie. With nary an ounce of hiss or distortion in the mix, both of these soundtracks are very loud and enveloping. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. Jason X is featured as one of New Line's "Platinum Series" DVDs, and as such sports a vast array of extra features. Starting out the disc is a commentary track with director James Isaac, writer Todd Farmer, and producer Noel Cunningham. This is a grandly entertaining commentary with all kinds of stories about the film's production and lots of tidbits about the character of Jason (played by the imposing Kane Hodder). "The Many Lives of Jason Voorhees" is a half-hour featurette that takes a probing yet humorous eye to the legendary Friday the 13th series. Featuring interviews by film critic Drew McWeeny, film historian David del Valle, B-movie host Joe Bob Briggs and others, this is an exceptionally entertaining piece on the history of the franchise. "By Any Means Necessary: The Making of Jason X" is a nice promotional piece on the making of the film with interviews by the principle cast and crew members. Much of the information from this featurette is covered in the commentary, though this is still a worthwhile treat for fans. Finally there is a theatrical trailer for the film, along with a fun "Jump to a Death" menu.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Like any business, a B-grade horror franchise needs occasional investment in its infrastructure in order to stem the tide of ever-lessening returns. And so, following the success of Halloween: H20, the Friday the 13th series gets its own renovation. With a splashy-enough concept and ad campaign to lure big audiences the week before Spider-Man took summer 2002 by storm, Jason X is certainly a far cry better than most of the pitiable late-'80s installments in the series. But in its willingness to poke fun at both itself and the other movies from which it cribs, the flick isn't a whole lot different from 1993's Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. The best sequences are therefore the jokiest, and also, coincidentally, the most indebted to Star Trek. In the first, a female Mr. Spock/Data hybrid suddenly sprouts bondage gear and Charlie's Angels attitude. In the second, Jason, trapped on an imitation Holodeck, gets to party like it's 1980 at the expense of retro-bimbo phantasms. Elsewhere, it's all bland teen sex-comedy rejects in sub-Lost in Space costumes getting sliced and diced with ruthless efficiency. Despite the presence of a character named Dallas, the film never achieves a single moment of actual Alien-style terror. As for enjoyable gore, there are some inventive assassinations, such as the use of liquid nitrogen to render a human head into a blood Popsicle. Aside from the intentional laughs, there are some accidental ones, including an android beheading too cheap to make use of even a single digital FX shot to make it look convincing. It's as if, having blown their entire budget on post-Seven opening credits and Resident Evil character concepts, the producers had to scrimp when it came to the actual movie. Still, a thoroughly slick Friday the 13th just wouldn't gel with the rest of the series; it's enough to know that someone somewhere was willing to put enough time and money into a Jason flick to infuse it with even a modicum of cool.
