Piranha 3DD fails to match the full-blown bloodbath of the first movie, and features too many callbacks to that film to really establish its own identity.

Here is a follow-up that could not be any more clueless if it had been conceived in a void.

This movie looks like it was shot in 1989 and cobbled together randomly.
November 25, 2013
The picture's biggest sin (or biggest achievement) is the fact that it manages to be stunningly short yet still have several flat, boring stretches.
September 15, 2012
This brainless and soulless throwback to exploitation cinema occasionally entertains but mostly just makes you root for carnivorous fish to do away with everyone involved.
September 10, 2012
An absolutely awful sequel that flushes any potential this franchise might have otherwise had.
June 9, 2012
This sequel puts such little effort into the same basic setup that it's barely even a movie.
June 8, 2012
A carnival hustle that even The Hoff should be ashamed of.

While the previous Piranha movie had just the right blend of silliness, exploitation, and fun, Piranha 3DD seems totally lost. It comes across as forced, ugly, offensive, and lazy.

Blood and guts are splashed around the frame, yet what's missing here is directorial authority, with Gulager a lousy gore zone conductor incapable of building momentum with easy lay-up horror elements.
June 5, 2012
Witless, technically slipshod, and neither remotely scary nor titillating, it pretty much fails on all levels.
June 5, 2012
...boasts a roster of hopelessly forgettable central characters and, for the most part, lurches from one poorly-conceived set-piece to the next.
June 4, 2012
Low-budget, softcore - destined to make a quick detour to DVD so sneaky, testosterone-propelled teens can easily subvert the R-rating.
June 4, 2012
Piranha 3DD is a shining example of a movie so bad that it's awful.
June 2, 2012
Takes the fun out of ravenous piranhas chomping down on naked women...
June 2, 2012
The first half of the film merely treads water in anticipation for the eventual bloodbath, and once the teeth start gnawing, it's just one laborious machination after another to get to the end of the movie, which stops without much of a resolution.
June 2, 2012
With most of the running time devoted to setting up and over-explaining the premise, mayhem gets short shrift.
June 2, 2012
With its too-short runtime, sloppy sense of plotting, and poor CGI, Piranha 3DD feels like a cheap-o, direct-to-DVD sequel that somehow got a more prominent summer release.
June 1, 2012
Though its title suggests new heights of outlandish comic gore (and bust sizes), Piranha 3DD feels awfully small in comparison with its predecessors.
June 1, 2012
Gulager ... mostly seems to be trying to see how much he can degrade the old Jaws formula and still have it interpreted as parody rather than apathy.
