Piranha

This Summer 3D Shows Its Teeth


Piranha
This crowd-pleasing gore-fest is light on plot on heavy on bloody gore and eye candy. The action goes down at a popular seaside resort where the population explodes as hordes of randy students descend for a spring break. Unfortunately a recent undersea earthquake has released thousands of prehistoric piranha-like creatures who are extremely hungry and aggressive. Soon the sea is running red as they dine on savoury student flesh, while the local officials try to maintain order and keep people alive. Expect plenty of blood, gore, and nudity. Enjoy. This is the 2D version.

87 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Nudity, Violence).

What the Critics say

Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconThe script is ridiculous, the bodies are great and the film skates so long on the line between knowingly bad and bad that by the time the body count hits 100 and the booby count hits 1000, we've lost track of the difference.

eye Weekly
Chris Bilton quote iconThere are many laugh-out-loud moments of horror and humour, Adam Scott proves himself worthy of a lucrative future in Hollywood actioners, the 3-D is put to good use (for once) and, for all its tasteless gore, Piranha 3D is surprisingly memorable.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconIt's not Merchant-Ivory, but it's efficient and reasonably well made.

Tomatometer quote iconPlaying exactly to expectations for a movie about killer fish run amok, Piranha 3-D dishes out gore, guffaws and gratuitous nudity with equal glee.
