Piranha 3D

Piranha 3D

B-grade horror set in sleepy Lake Victoria, Arizona. Every year, the population explodes to 50,000 for Spring Break – a riot of drunken fun in the sun for college students. This year, things turn sour. The lake sits on a crater formed by an ancient volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors causes the lake floor to crack open, scores of prehistoric piranhas set forth from the deep. Millions of these razor-toothed flesh eaters, with a primeval impulse to kill, wreck havoc upon the party-goers. A local sheriff (Elisabeth Shue, Leaving Las Vegas) gets herself a group of helpers and risks everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores.

In 3D and from the director of The Hills Have Eyes. Also stars Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Richard Dreyfuss (in a nod to Jaws).

The 32-year-old carnivorous fish franchise has lost none of its bite, serving up a fresh batch of spring-break revelers for the fearsome creatures to attack.

“There are thousands of them – and they’re pissed!” gasps biologist Adam Scott in Aja’s entertaining rehash of the old Corman classic. As fish food goes, however, it’s not especially filling.

The entertainment formula behind this short and nasty movie - devised according to someone's idea of what teenage boys with the guile, the facial hair or the "guardian" to gain admission to an R-rated movie are likely to enjoy - is sloppy and simple.

Piranha 3D ends the summer on a note of shamelessly entertaining B movie bottomfeeding.

Piranha 3D is trying so hard for the laughs and the allusions amid all the gore, and endless bloodbath of bare naked ladies, that it completely forgets to frighten anyone.

A pitch-perfect, guilty-pleasure serving of late-summer schlock that handily nails the tongue-in-cheek spirit of the Roger Corman original.

Remember the film you hoped Snakes On A Plane would be – this is it! By any sane cinematic standards, meretricious trash … but thrown at you with such good-humoured glee that it’s hard to resist. It’s a bumper-sticker of a movie: honk if you love tits and gore! Honk honk honk.

Piranha embraces the extra-dimension, with French director Alexandre Aja hurling drinks, hoses, spew, outboard motors and eyeballs at the audience.

Deliberately like on of those movies you might watch at 2am Sunday morning. Delivered plenty of gore and tits. Great to see Christopher Lloyd again. Climax of the movie not as good as the massacre scene. Was alright.

**CONTAINS SPOILERS** my boyfriend convinced me to watch this movie and i just wanted to tell you that i strongly believed it was going to be one of those stupid syfy films that i hated but it actually wasn't that bad. i was a little upset though that it was more funny than scary but it was enjoyable. i loved the twist at the end and hope you make another...
