Piranha 2
Piranha 2 Rating: 40 out of 100 based on 17 reviews.
Having awoken from their spring break extravaganza at Lake Victoria, the swarm heads upstream where they look to make a meal out of Big Wet, a local water park where when it comes to fun, nobody does it wetter! Though they came to get wet, get loaded and get some, the staff and patrons get more than they bargained for when they must face the fiercest, most bloodthirsty piranhas yet. Lead by the strong-willed, studious Maddy and her friends, Barry and Kyle, the trio must dive in and take on these man-eating creatures using every ounce of their being…but can they be stopped? Shot in 3-D and feauturing Esquire Magazine’s “2011 Sexiest Woman Alive,” Katrina Bowden and the return of Christopher Lloyd, Paul Scheer and Ving Rhames alongside fresh bait Gary Busey and David Hasselhoff, the film that took an $80 Million bite out of the box office is back for more…only this time it has double the terror and double the D!

Reviews for Piranha 2
Screen Jabber
Piranha 3DD got quite the panning from critics (well, the few who were allowed to see it beforehand) upon its theatrical release. And, to be fair, when you see it you can understand why. But it does have at least a couple of redeeming features...

Piranha 3DD is nothing more than a flimsy excuse to watch dudes get decapitated and women whip out their gigantic breasts. It’s morally bankrupt and consistently depraved. It features the flimsiest of plots and skimpiest of tops, mashed together in...
Reel Film Reviews
Picking up shortly after the events of its 2010 predecessor, Piranha, Piranha 3DD details the chaos that ensues at a water park after the titular creatures find their way into the plumbing. It's a purposefully tongue-in-cheek setup that's generally...

Splatter films aren’t alone in having reached a point where filmmakers seem content to serve up the vague rudiments of a story, relying on viewers’ recognition of the tropes and disinterest with the details.

One of the problems with letting adolescent boys make movies is that adolescent boys are notoriously bad at knowing when a joke has run its course. The 15-year-olds who made “Piranha,” a 3D boobs-and-blood explosion from two summers ago, got some...

A batch of new images from Piranha 3DD has gone online, but with a title like that one doesn’t really need much more elaboration in order to decide if the film is up his or her alley. Yes, the images highlight lots of boobs and blood, but we also get new

The best part of Piranha 3DD, the pointless sequel to the utterly unnecessary 2010 remake of Piranha, is the credits. Not only do they signify that the film is finally, mercifully over, but they also allow for David Hasselhoff to sing the theme song...

Aisle Seat
The original 1978 Piranha was conceived as a cheap Jaws knockoff, but director Joe Dante brought some real thrills to it, as well as a subtle sense of humor. Alexandre Aja's 2010 remake, Piranha 3D, added an extra dimension and served as a gloriously...

There's only so much you can do with the Piranha franchise. It wasn't exactly rocket science to begin with, but 2009's Piranha 3D still ended up a scuzzy but entertaining gorefest. It wasn't so awful you couldn't have a good time with it...

It seems impossible that a sequel to a movie as ridiculous as Piranha 3D could disappoint but Piranha 3DD stops at mediocre before arriving at gloriously bad. Director John Gulager, who successfully shepherded the Feast series through three installments,

When I saw “Piranha 3D” in the theaters back in 2010, I was blown away and had quite a lot of fun. Of course that film left the ending wide open for a sequel. Though this sequel has not had an easy road, it was rushed to be released, them pushed back...

The superfluous script revolves around a gaggle of skimpily-clad teenagers who (as if you couldn’t guess) fall prey to a horde of ravenous man-eating fish.

It might have been a B-movie, but 2010’s ‘Piranha 3D’ was a wickedly funny horror comedy that mixed bikinis, boobs, bodies and blood for a gory good time. Unfortunately, its filmmaker Alexandre Aja doesn’t return for its sequel...
Birmingham Mail
TIME waits for no man – especially in the movies.Just like Burt Reynolds went from being the world’s biggest box office star to barely being able to get a gig, so David Hasselhoff is in danger of being obliterated.

Shadows on the Wall
After the guilty-pleasure success of 2010's Piranha 3D, the quickly slapped-together trailer for this sequel looked like just as much fun. Sadly, more time and creativity was put into that teaser than the finished movie, which is a choppy, unfunny mess.

From topless women splashing about in the water, to an unfortunate fellow who loses his penis to a stubborn fish, Piranha 3DD tries hard to recycle many of the same elements that made its 2010 predecessor, Piranha 3D, such trashy fun.

ถามตัวเองก่อนว่าคุณคาดหวังว่าจะได้เห็นอะไรจากหนังเรื่องนี้ ? ถ้าคำตอบคือ ความโหด ความฮา และความโป๊แบบอึ๋มกระจาย ทั้งหมดนี้คือสิ่งที่ “Piranha 3DD” มีให้แบบครบถ้วน หากแต่การเลือกหยิบมานำเสนอกลับไม่ค่อยส่งผลให้ตัวหนังมีความสนุกหรือความบันเทิงอย่างที่ควร...
