2 stars out of 4

Go into James Isaac's JASON X with very low expectations, as I did, and you might just find that you end up like it. The technique didn't work for me, but it's always worth a try.

JASON X, the tenth in the FRIDAY THE 13TH series, is set way off in the future -- 2455 to be precise. It is a time of peace and prosperity on earth with people spending all their waking hours engaged in artistic and humanistic pursuits. Kidding, of course. Screenwriters' visions of the future usually vary only in the degree of the destruction that humans have inflicted on the planet and each other. This time Earth is so uninhabitable that the action is set on a spaceship.

In what could be titled JASON GOES SCI-FI, the movie tells yet another tale about Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder), who, after having been frozen back at the turn of the millennium, is being defrosted.

The college age scientists on board the ship are all horny hunks or brainless brunettes, except for one token blonde bimbo. The best and funniest character is a female android named Kay-Em 14 (Lisa Ryder), who is a cross between Sigourney Weaver and an inflatable sex toy. Her best scene comes when her master tries to help her be just like a real woman. The only problem is that her nipples keep falling off. He assures her that he loves her just the way she is.

Most of the movie -- surprise -- consists of Jason slicing and dicing the crew as gorily as possible. The crew, given their level of stupidity, probably deserves their fate. When it's clear that their bullets won't kill Jason, their solution is just to fire more. (Why do science fiction movies figure that guns in the future will be almost exactly like today's machine guns, only bigger? Don't they think weapons will advance in four centuries?) And when the crew goes after an unstoppable killer like Jason, why do they split up so that he can more easily kill them off one or two at a time?

With its kind of enjoyable, high volume techno-organ funeral music and its little bits of humor, I've got to admit it. It could have been worse.

JASON X runs 1:33. It is rated R for "strong horror violence, language and some sexuality" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.
