Unfortunately, they neglected to include half of the original formula. Truly excessive T&A? Check. Obvious character archetypes doing/saying obvious things? Check. Humor, either hokey, offensive, or smart? Check. Scares and grind-em-up deaths?
Not so much.
The problem here lies right in the set-up: an unapologetically awful man (played by David Koechner) opens a water park (with an adults only section) and contrives to fill it for free from a nearby lake. Three guesses how that plays out.
Yes. The piranhas infest the water park, and therein lies the problem. I don't know if you've ever been to a water park, but every one I've ever visited appeared to have been planned and designed by a blind man with permanent vertigo. This is usually in keeping with the looping, curving, twisting paths of the various water slides and lazy rivers, and it means it's not that hard to get turned around if the park is big. The point being: filming in one must be hell.
There is never any real sense of place to the film, and the park is never given a wide enough shot to really show the scale of the disaster.Read more ›
If you are looking for a heart-pounding scary thriller about killer fish than look elsewhere because this sequel is definitely not for you. The first movie wasn't really all that terrifying either, it had it's moments, but it made up for it all with some pretty intense scenes of piranha carnage. This one is just pure piranha cornage.
Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, and Paul Scheer all reprise their roles from the first one, and Gary Busey, and David Hasselhoff join the cast to help add a new level of cheesiness to this outing, especially David Hasselhoff who hams it up royally and had me laughing out loud more than a few times with his antics.
The 3D was not the best that I have ever seen, but it wasn't bad. It had some good pop-out effects here and there, but not a whole lot of depth to a lot of it. Some scenes looked better in 3D than others. But I'm still glad that I got this 3-disc set for my collection.
The special effects weren't bad either, although nothing in this movie compares to the amazingly gross and gory stuff that Greg Nicotero and his team came up with for the first movie. But this one has some passable effects here and there. And the CGI was very well-done. The piranha looked pretty good, both the CGI and puppet practical effects ones, I thought.
If you are looking for a good time with a wild and wet and crazy movie that does not take itself seriously whatsoever than give this movie a try for some good cheap laughs and thrills.
There's no way I'd ever want to watch this movie again; not a keeper.

It had potential, but I think it was rushed too quickly to capitalize on the Piranha remake that preceded it. Read morePublished 8 days ago by RodimusOne
