I loved the original Piranha when Joe Dante brought terror and laughs when the big hole was left by Jaws (until the fairly good sequel Jaws 2 was released in the same year) The mixture of blood, boobs and fish became an instant classic. After that any movies about Piranha were (if you pardon the expression) dead in the water. Fast forward to 2010 and Alex Aja brings the fun and terror back and it was an instant success as well as bringing the fun back to 3D too. So naturally everyone was waiting eagerly for the sequel but Piranha 3DD was a tragedy from the start. First it's theatrical release date was delayed (no a good sign) The story could have been brilliant, Piranha loose in a water-park. What could go wrong?! Well everything. From the start you can tell that this is an altogether different film. This is a spoof from beginning to end and If it wasn't for the penis and boobs jokes on screen, this sequel would have been a 15. It is much more tamer than Piranha 3D. Don't get me wrong, the 3D is excellent but don't go into this expecting the gore of Piranha 3D because this is much more tamer than P3D. When the climatic attacks begins, the camera does not show very much, in fact hardly anything compared to P3D. P3D was an 18 for a reason, but without the porn like substance of P3DD, it's hard to figure out why this was an 18 because the gore is more towards the 15 area. The acting for most part was good. Danielle panabaker was good as the heroine, and the welcome inclusion of Ving Rhames as the sheriff who lost his legs in P3D gives the best laugh of the movie along with Paul Scheer. In this film it felt like the piranha weren't really that hungry. The initial bloodbath is more like a blood bubble bath, you only see a couple of really graphic ones in the WHOLE movie. personally it feels like they just said we're making this our way and stuck a middle finger at it's audience who loved the classic and P3D. In fact to tell you the truth I expected more from the creators of Saw V, VI and VII (who wrote this script) their other movie The Collector was a gruesome goody. This one should just be regarded as a full on comedy and i guess you will enjoy it, watch it as a gruesome horror (as it should have been) you will be sorely disappointed. I tried so much to like this but this to the Piranha 3D series was like Jaws 3D was like to the Jaws series. Fun but only in 3D. Like i said before this could have easily been a 15 if it had missed out the crude gags. Personally I would have prefered more pirnah chowing and ripping people to shreds than see boobs bouncing in front of the camera as well as penises.

I am a huge fan of these so called "creature features", and for me the first one had everything that makes these films great,sadly this has none of those things. Utterly bland, pointless experience. Rubbish special effects, and none of the style, or humour of the original. If you enjoyed the first one, AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!

I will start by saying I hated the first film. I thought it was a soft core adult film with a few fish in places. So when I was forcibly dragged to this, I wanted to take my iPod or a book.
To be fair, this one doesn't set out to be anything other than boobs, gore and....boobs... It's actually got some laugh out loud bits. The parts with David hasselhoff especially.
Do they justify seeing it? Not completely but it doesn't take itself too seriously this time around and as such was more fun than the first.

  "..AWESOME!!...PERFECT SEQUEL.."

This was yet again another blast of a horror movie!! An epic in your face blood fest sequel full of gore hilarious gags and tons of nudity!! Its over the top and the perfect direction to take, this movie was directed by John Gulager who made the awesome and disgusting feast trilogy so knows his stuff, the story was great and kept in line with the original, the cast was perfect Danielle Panabaker was beautiful and a sexy lead, there was hilarious cameos from Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd and David Hasselhoff who had some great lines, this is everything a fan of the series wants, great gore, boobs, comedy, more boobs, make sure you get this!! Like the original the 3D was just a gimmick and will probably be better in 2D.

With Piranha 3DD as the title suggest you get what you pay for.
For those who complained that 2010's Piranha was nothing but trash then they won't think anything else of this, as it's even more trashy!
But for a film that never sets out to be anything else and has it's tongue pushed even further into it's bloody cheek this sequel is just as much gleeful fun. To say this sequel was originally intended to be a cheap driect to DVD / Blu Ray release would have done the film an injustice, as although it never sets it's sights on anything other than being a daft creature feature missing the sight of "The Hoff" poking fun out of his macho/ self loving image and playing himself as he opens up a waterpark, dressed as Mitch from Bay Watch. Only to find his true calling in life as the hungry fish end up in the pool. For the sight of Hoff running in slow-mo to the Baywatch theme while bathers get munched only for the music to be cut short and Hoff declairing he's too old is worth the price of the ticket alone. This low budget sequel has more action and more laughs than the first, but with a tighter budget when the dinner bell is rung, the havoc is not quite as spectacular as the first film, but with some intentional brilliantly dumb lines the film is great fun.
The film will get mauled by stuffy critics, but for those who enjoyed the daftness of the 2010 movie should relish every minute and in comparison to 2011's shoddy Shark Night, Piranha 3DD tears chunks out of it.
