2½ stars out of 4
You know, if New Line was going to kill Freddy off once and for all, why
didn't they at least give the creative team a bigger budget to play with?
As it is, the movie looks cheap and the effects are pathetic. Storywise,
we find out a little bit more about Freddy's origins, but it's nothing
that's thrilling enough to get hardcore Nightmare fans drooling. Hell,
Freddy doesn't even seem funny anymore- most of his wisecracks just come
off as limp. Also, some pointless cameos by Alice Cooper and Roseanne
Barr do nothing to add excitement. The final scene where Freddy bites
it is filmed in 3-D, but seeing as how the movie had sucky, C-grade FX
to begin with; seeing them in 3-D doesn't really do jack. So is Freddy
finally dead? What do you think?
