By Mark Eremite VINE VOICE on July 9, 2012
Format: Blu-ray
The recent remake of Piranha was nearly pitch-perfect. Gleefully hapless characters (portrayed with excellent B-movie abandon by the likes of Elisabeth Shue, Christopher Lloyd, and even Richard Dreyfus) trotted through the cliche-riddled story and provided both laughs and inventive, over-the-top gore. It wasn't out to win any awards, but what it WAS out to do -- amuse and disturb -- it did quite well. So, of course, they had to make a sequel.

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.

This movie cracked me up! If you've seen and enjoyed the first one, then you know exactly what you're getting with 3DD! It's a throw back to all the old exploitation films. Is it going to win an Oscar? Nope! Is there plenty of attractive, naked women, laughs and lots of blood? You bet! And isn't that why you're watching this movie in the first place?

You will have to know before you watch this movie that this movie is far from being serious. I actually watched this movie because the first one made me laugh more then cringe. I was amused but overall not as good as the first. If you are into just naked women with big you know whats you will get entertained. Thats why I was, but to expect an actual cool storyline then you will be let down.

This movie is so over-the-top cheesy and gawdawful ridiculous that it will go down in movie history as one of the best worst movies ever made; yet, it's still very, very entertaining. Just thinking about it now makes me chuckle at some of the crazy things that they did in this wacky movie. I mean, it's about prehistoric piranha invading an adult-themed waterpark for crying out loud! You can't get much more zanier than that for a movie premise.

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.

A very strange movie, it claims to be a comedy but it has the patchwork feel of something made by a committee who couldn't agree on anything. Some of the scenes are shot and edited like a frenzied music video; some scenes are dead slow with few edits looking like castoffs they didn't know how to fit in. Either they didn't know what they wanted to achieve in the first place, or the filmmakers were so inept that this was the best they could come up with. It's scattershot to say the least; with humor ranging from lame to massive displays of appallingly bad taste (the decapitation of a child for laughs). Most of it just felt sleazy and desperate, the work of puerile minds. Things only got worse once David Hasselhoff showed up and just wouldn't go away (I thought he'd never leave). As a Jaws spoof, this was a subpar retread offering nothing new. As a sequel to Piranha 3D, it failed on every level. If they were hoping to start a franchise, they definitely picked the wrong team to helm the second in what looks like a very short series.

There's no way I'd ever want to watch this movie again; not a keeper.
