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.

Just so badBy 1mper1um (52 reviews) , 17 Mar 2013was looking forward to a guilty pleasure of boobs and blood like the first one but this was atrocious. Nowhere near the level of gore required, hackneyed characters throughout and juvenile humour instead of tongue-in-cheek. The only bright spot was the most beautiful women to ever walk the planet - Meagan Tandy - who dies with her bf when their van hits the water.

Stupid Good :-DBy LeeB (1 review) from Lichfield , 05 Mar 2013Ridiculous, but good with it! Dont think about it, just revel in its satire & self-humiliation! The Hoff is fantastic in it, seriously good actor!!
Pirhana ddBy sh8k3y (14 reviews) , 17 Feb 2013I thought the story line was pretty pathetic. Some funny moments and some good comedy lines. David Hasslehoff was kinda funny. Overall im disappointed
Dear god No!!By ktbennett (1 review) , 31 Jan 2013omg i was looking forward to watching i wish i had not ... dont get me wrong there were a few and i mean a few good bits but overall the movie was very cringe worthy ... with some top actors i was surprised to be honest it was that bad .. the best part was the end when the out takes came on ...
