Not as bad as the title suggests

Not really taking Manhattan, because the majority of the movie is set on a ship... but it's fun. It's just an average sequel, nothing really memorable except some ship action and the last 30 minutes of Manhattan. The last one from the 80s, where they all should be.

Easily the most unintentionally funny of the franchise.

The idea that these movies were ever "scary" seems insane at this point. The victims are all dumb as rocks, with Jason just stomping around in the clear light of day and never getting caught. How many kids is he gonna kill on this boat before anyone notices??? And why does it take Jason over an hour to step foot in Manhattan....IT'S JASON TAKES MAN. HAT. TAN!!!

Agonising watch and not in a good way

Wow, this franchise really did get worse as it went a long. The main female character has as much personality as a washing up sponge, as to be fair did most of the cast. The film went on and on and on and on and my will to live ebbed away. An hour and a half never felt so long. The acting was distinctly wooden and lacking. The clichés were just laid on so thick it was boring and eye roll enducing. I prayed for Jason to just hurry up and kill the lot of them and be done with it.
