MORE KILLER FISH, MORE FLESH, MORE BLOOD......AND THE HOFF!By MAVERICK (70 reviews) from Knottingley , 12 May 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]With Piranha 3DD as the title suggest you get what you pay for.
For those who complained that 2010's Piranha was nothing but trash then they won't think anything else of this, as it's even more trashy!
But for a film that never sets out to be anything else and has it's tongue pushed even further into it's bloody cheek this sequel is just as much gleeful fun. To say this sequel was originally intended to be a cheap driect to DVD / Blu Ray release would have done the film an injustice, as although it never sets it's sights on anything other than being a daft creature feature missing the sight of 'The Hoff' poking fun out of his macho/ self loving image and playing himself as he opens up a waterpark, dressed as Mitch from Bay Watch. Only to find his true calling in life as the hungry fish end up in the pool. For the sight of Hoff running in slow-mo to the Baywatch theme while bathers get munched only for the music to be cut short and Hoff declairing he's too old is worth the price of the ticket alone. This low budget sequel has more action and more laughs than the first, but with a tighter budget when the dinner bell is rung, the havoc is not quite as spectacular as the first film, but with some intentional brilliantly dumb lines the film is great fun.
The film will get mauled by stuffy critics, but for those who enjoyed the daftness of the 2010 movie should relish every minute and in comparison to 2011's shoddy Shark Night, Piranha 3DD tears chunks out of it.

Absolutely, positively.... awful, don't waste your time!By kelsieafk (9 reviews) , 12 Aug 2013Bought Pirahna 3D when it come out 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. The story was brilliant, the action was really good and it was overall a really good watch. These opinions dont, however, apply to Pirahna 3DD. I thought that because the first was so good, the second could only be as good or better; how wrong I was. The acting is awful, there is far too much unnecessary 'rude' bits; having strippers at a water park, please? How ridiculous is that? It was a waste of my time so I recommend anyone who is thinking of watching it, to think again.

Atrocious, with no story.By a customer , 31 May 2013Absolutely abysmal. Okay, when renting 'Piranha 3DD', I don't expect 'Citizen Kane', but I do expect some semblance of a story or characters. This was bare-naked skin and awful, awful CGI with the most dunder-headed 3D maneuvers. It wouldn't have been so bad if there was some decent humour, but that was cheap too. Give this a miss and go straight to internet soft porn.
