Freddy vs. Jason

Freddy vs. Jason ★★★

I could go on about how bad the screenplay is, but there’s such a deliberate awareness of how awful the characters are, and that’s because in the end really the only two characters anyone are going to care about are Freddy and Jason. 

I’m assuming the intention of the screenplay writers was to have it be an even playing field for both killers, but I would argue that Jason really is the winner of this film. He has far more ‘heroic’ (for lack of a better term) moments than Freddy does. Jason kills a douchbag misogynistic boyfriend within the first 15 minutes of the film, then goes on to stop a rape from happening, and then goes on to kill Kelly Rowland after she decides to unjustifiably drop the f-slur. Sorry, Freddy but Jason definitely is the winner in my eyes.
