The Hatchet movies have always paid clever homage to the classic slasher flicks. This one however overtly uses in jokes that take away from the usual pacing and action of the previous installments. Despite this I still found this one very entertaining but can see why others did not enjoy it.
Uhh, this one is shit (IMHO). I'm not a huge fan of the first two in the first place but they seem to have a good word of mouth. Anyways: this is that sequel where they bring in the special ops with guns and well... it takes the bad acting and and stupidity to new heights. The only thing that is left then is the gore and well, it isn't that great either.
