Piranha 3DD (2012)

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water park... The piranhas are back in another outrageous outing with even more blood and boobs than ever before! Those pesky pre-historic piranhas have found their way into a new lake, but unfortunately for the locals, the lake also serves as the source for the the new Big Wet water park! If you thought PIRANHA 3D was in poor taste, you ain't seen nuthin' yet! The creative team behind the cult-classic FEAST takes over in this direct-to-video sequel, and they have really nailed it this time. PIRANHA 3DD shoots way over the top with its crude humor and exploitative fun, throwing political-correctness to the wind along with plenty of limbs and bikini tops. Don't let the 'R' rating fool you... This film has more gratuitous nudity and violence than any Uncut DVD on the market. All contextualized, of course. Where PIRANHA 3D never struck an even balance between the humor and horror, director John Gulager and writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan keep the pace moving a mile a minute as they shock, entertain, and completely disgust along the way. If that weren't enough, PIRANHA 3DD unleashes the one-and-only David Hasselhoff in a brilliant self-parody for the final act. Any fans who may have been disappointed with the last PIRANHA can get ready for a stupid good time with PIRANHA 3DD!

Rating: 6/10.

  1. Yeah, I'm of the opposite view. This movie was painful to me, while I have a soft spot for the original (Remake).

    To be fair, it's also one of the only two movies I've seen in 3-D in Theaters (the other being Avatar), so that may affect things. I still like it in 2-D.

    This movie has all of the problems that 'Feast 2' and '3' have- John Gulagher.

    Right off the bat, you see the problem as replacing Richard Dreyfuss' opening Cameo with one featuring Gary Busey and the elder Galagher (complete with cows that fart fish babies) is a pale and sad comparison.

    I wanted to love this. I don't.

  2. Piranha 3D was the only film I have ever seen in my entire life that made nudity boring, and for that, I can never forgive it. Did you at least appreciate the little ginger bastard?

  3. I did...to an extent. I didn't appreciate it nearly as much as John Gulagher did.

    'Piranha 3-D' has many faults, I grant you that. It does, however, make the story important. The dramatic devices are a bit cliche (the couple) and patronizing (the two kids), but they work.

    The film has ridiculous humor, gore and nudity, but still works as a film for me. This film is just a reel of stupidity that made my head hurt.

    By the way, how forced was that Ving Rhames and Paul Scheer cameo? Plus, it just kind of ends with no real wrap-up. Random.

  4. Oh dude super forced, I actually couldnt figure out how or why anyone would ever agree to such a random cameo? I get bringing on new bits like Hasselhoff, but Rhames and Scheer were better left out of this one. Christopher Lloyd was already a stretch.
