Editorial Reviews

After a boat carrying diplomats disappears on Venezuela's Orinoco River, Navy Seal Jason Fitch (Paul Logan) is called in to investigate an assumed assassination plot. But something much bigger and deadlier is the culprit: a mutant strain of giant, ferocious piranha. Genetics researcher Sarah Monroe (1980's pop star Tiffany) has discovered that they're quickly doubling in size…and heading north to the ocean. Jason and Sarah must team up to stop the massive fish from devouring everything—and anyone—in their path. Hold on for this wild ride the Huffington Post calls ""the Syfy Channel's most insane original movie yet!""

After watching this a second time, I cannot sit silent any longer. If you like bad/funny (as opposed to bad/boring) movies, Mega Piranha must be seen! This is either a brilliant parody or a totally inept effort (I think both), but it is fun.

Ten things I find great about this movie:

1) The hero, Jason Fitch, steps off the plane, a scientist (80s pop star Tiffany) stops him and explains the danger of the Mega Piranha, and he believes her!

2) The hero: He never changes his expression, and always wears black. Even when he is sneaking around in broad daylight he is wearing black! There is a montage of him sneaking into the government base in daylight, and at one point he is about ten feet up, straddling the pathway (and dressed in black), and the guards do not even see him.

3) Fitch lying on his back and using bicycle kicks to fend off the attacking Mega Piranha.

4) Another reviewer noted the inconsistancies of the background shots from out of the car windows, but what about the jungle? The river where the Mega Piranha live is surrounded by dense jungle; but when the two scientists visit it it is scrub and looks like the hills surrounding Los Angeles.

5) Regarding the two scientists, I love the part when they watch a Venezuelan soldier being eaten by the Mega Piranha. There are several cuts between the attack and one horrified scientist trying to run and help while being restrained by the other scientist. The acting and the length of the scene make it hilarious. Did they just repeat the shots of the scientists?

6) Another gaffe I did not notice reviewed is the US naval ship. From far away it looks like some kind of frigate, but when it fires, and later when it sinks, it is obviously a battleship.

What more could you want in an all-star cast. A bubble-gum pop star from the 80's who is aging right along with those who know who she is. That's right, Tiffany, saw you standing there, and then you were eaten by a fish the size of a house, and it's all her fault. And if that is not vintage enough for you, here's the story ... Greg Brady.. err... I mean Bob Grady as Secretary of State. Barry Williams as the equivalent of Hillary Clinton in this role is just a bunch of fun. And then we have the leading man with the most talented abs I've never seen before. That's right, Paul Logan, best known for his riveting role of "Joe" in Stripper Wives (Don't worry, I don't know who he is either.)

Freakin' Tiffany screwed up a fish experiment, and basically made Piranha breed at mega rates, mega speed and mega size. Like every hour goes buy, they range from small fish, to kickable size, then land loving human size, and then flying 18 wheeler size, destroying not only boats, but crashing into skyscrapers and hotels. Brilliant!

Of course you start out with some boobies, and a few more boobies, and some gushes of blood because woman love to go swimming topless in murky water of course. But we gradually get to the impossible to escape period of growth where the fish just simply chomp down boats in layers and then eventually just swallow them as the become "mega".

There is not one bit of acting to be found here, and that's just fantastic. Paul Logan pretty much did his Keanu Reeves school of method acting so spot on, that he actually sounds like him. Whether he's kicking or punching fish, we're just rooting for his abs and can't help to throw in a few "whoa! dude!

God bless The Asylum. Nobody makes low-budget rip-offs of major studio films like these guys - and I think Megapiranha may be their best release yet. Where else are you going to find Greg Brady (Barry Williams) as Secretary of State ordering military strikes on a foreign country with no apparent involvement by the Department of Defense or the White House? Where else can you find 80's pop sensation Tiffany playing a genetic scientist? Best of all, where else could you find humongous piranhas hurling themselves out of the water smack dab into warehouses and other buildings or snatching a helicopter right out of the air? The fact that the filmmakers didn't have the budget to make the CGI effects look even remotely real just makes a good thing even better. Little things mean a lot, as well. For instance, there's one scene where the Secretary of State is speaking to his special forces guy over the phone; it's obviously dark outside at the Secretary's Washington location, but it's the middle of the day in Venezuela. Apparently, no one thought to check Venezuela's time zone which is actually half an hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time (Chavez made the half-hour change in 2007 because he didn't like being in the same time zone as the US).

Our story begins with the US Ambassador to Venezuela joining a foreign minister and a bevy of bikini-clad young ladies on a leisurely sail through the middle of the jungle. Suddenly, a school of super piranhas attack, sinking the boat and eating everyone who was on it. Of course, no one else knows what happened. While the Venezuelan government claims it was a terrorist attack, Secretary of State Bob Grady sends his top Special Forces guy, Jason Fitch (Paul Logan), down there to find out what really happened.
