I understand what the filmmakers were trying to do and they almost pulled it off, but there's no sense in making the audience slog through a dreary 40+ minutes before the fun actually begins.

Piranha 3D is more funny than disgusting, even when screen fills with half-nude swimmers, bobbing like human dumplings in a roiling vat of borscht. This isn't just sick, it's clas-sick!

Fails in being an entertaining satire and a competent horror film...

Theres a dull predictability to the set pieces; when you see a topless para-skier bob in-and-out of the water, its inevitable that shell rise into the air without any legs.

Even if the rest is immediately forgettable, the massacre scene isn't.

Its only saving grace, if the film can really be said to have one, is that the filmmakers were fully aware that they weren't making anything that could be taken seriously.

Let's get this over with: 'Piranha 3D' is softcore exploitation.

If you're looking for signs of intelligent life -- well, did you really expect to find them in a remake of a Seventies B-movie anyway?

Gratuitous in every sense of the word.

While most horror movies attempt to draw sympathy for its victims, Piranha revels in sadistic glee as thousands of teens are torn apart with unparalleled ferocity, turning crystal waters blood red for the adulation of the audience.

Insultingly the filmmakers thought that modern audiences want lots of nudity and lots of gore, but would not appreciate decent writing or interesting characters.

There comes a point where you can't decide whether you're bored or nauseous, or a little bit of both.

Pretty limbs are torn rudely off, a girl being carried out of the water splits in two, and Lake Victoria turns blood red with the carnage.

Just because a film knows its trash, doesn't mean it should be forgiven of being so.
August 25, 2010
Like most movies seeking instant cult-film status, something is missing -- authentic exploitation madness maybe.
August 24, 2010
Relying on gross-out and shock in place of smarts or suspense, it's a film that reeks of talented people deliberately miring themselves in low-rent schlock.
August 23, 2010
What is disturbing is the talent and distinction of much of the cast, whose mere presence seems to signify an element of smart, self-conscious fun that the movie does not really supply.

A movie this adolescently dirty-minded could hardly pass up a chance to go to Lake Titicaca.

Lacks the fear and emotion of The Hills Have Eyes, isn't half as witty as Sorority Row and almost entirely consists of the same kill over and over.
