Incredibly boring movie. That's all that can really be said. One of the worst in the already awful Friday The 13th franchise. Nothing remotely interesting here.

Should be called: "Jason Takes a Boat to Manhattan". No good kills, almost completely bloodless and almost no Manhattan. I consider this the worst of the series.

Action: 1/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0/1 + Music: 1/1 + Good vs. Evil: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 4/10 or 40%.
There are two scenes in this film which are worth mentioning. The first is when a student named Julius, who is a boxer, challenges Jason to a fight. Julius unloads on Jason for nearly 3 minutes. It's similar to the Family Guy scenes with the giant chicken fights! At the end of the fight Jason throws one punch and literally knocks of Julius' head. Hilarious!
The second scene worth mentioning is during the climax. Jason and the three survivors are in the sewer. Somehow, toxic waste floods the sewers after the survivors get out. Somehow again, the toxic waste transforms Jason back into a little boy. What the hell is going on with this film?!?
