Three-dimensional Jason!
17 February 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

The last of the scary ones, "Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D" is one of the best in the series. The plot does have some holes in it and sometimes the acting leaves a lot to be desired, but the interesting component of the film is its use of 3-D. Don't let the 3-D aspect fool you into thinking the movie is bad (as in "Jaws 3-D" & "Amityville 3-D"). The film is great; as far as these type of slasher flicks go. Highly recommended.
