It comes across as forced, ugly, offensive, and lazy. What's the difference between scary and bloody? Viewers see severed limbs and heads, as well as bloody stumps and bloody skeletons, and even a bloody, severed penis. The scene is fairly intense but is interrupted by a piranha attack. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert with survivor Paul Scheer and a partially devoured Ving Rhames back for more fish frenzy. I was actually terribly excited about a sequel; I'm ashamed to admit it now. Why do you think that is? The entire premise is so labored, that a water park would become piranha-infested, and the characters are so unlikable; to dub them one-dimensional is to be too kind. Can it be both at once? In a very disturbing scene, a piranha is shown sticking out of a fat man's naked bottom.
Making up for everything, though, is a wonderfully funny and self-deprecating performance from David Hasselhoff - the Hoff lampoons his own perceived pomposity mercilessly and with pinpoint accuracy. The acting is abysmal even by bottom-of-the-barrel B-movie standards. Can he still be a hero? It's just hilarious and a ton of fun! Prepare for double the terror, double the action and double the D's in this sequel also starring Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka and David Koechner. A man is shown pleasuring himself, involving a water jet, in a swimming pool nothing explicit shown. Older teens may be drawn to the movie for the promise of nudity implied in the title -- and it's available on demand. Then once the piranhas strike, the movie just completely abandons any sense of reality and becomes a gonzo comedy of the absurd, with characters behaving like idiots from another dimension.
The tension is next to nil and the gore effects are pretty cheesy, trading gallons of blood for ingenuity many character deaths occur off screen, like Gary Busey's. Much like Expendables 2, the movie's tone shifts from tongue-in-cheek 80s throwback to meta self-awareness. And the movie stoops so low as to show a piranha killing a young boy. The movie becomes more of a lousy comedy with some absurd violence rather than a horror movie with a nasty sense of humor. One of the piranhas' victims is a young boy. After the terror unleashed on Lake Victoria in Piranha 3D, the pre-historic school of blood thirsty piranhas are back.
Where the hell did that money go? With a tall, handsome, crooked cop and a short nerd vying for her affections every step of the way, can Maddy save the day? This time, no one is safe from the flesh-eating fish as they sink their razor-sharp teeth into the visitors of the summer's best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Nate's Grade: D I actually thought this was about as entertaining as the first one, albeit just a rehash of all the elements that made the original so much fun. I'm going to start drinking heavily and forget I ever looked forward to this monstrosity on taste. In one shot, a piranha attacks a topless woman's chest. Prepare for double the terror, double the action, and double the D's in this sequel. Is it intended to be entertaining or disturbing? This time, no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of summer's best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Also heavy innuendo, flirting, foreplay, suggestive dancing, and gratuitous bikini shots.
There is some backstory, but it really doesn't matter - all that matters are the sporadic chompings of individuals leading up to the wholesale slaughter which comprises the final section. Unfortunately, he's also tapped into an underground lake and released more of the hungry carnivorous fish. That's the reason for the point drop, but I'd still recommend it to anyone who liked the original and waited for the sequel like I did. This time, no one is safe from the flesh-eating fish as they sink their razor-sharp teeth into the visitors of the summer's best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. For those who saw the first movie, there is little to surprise them here - a moderate amount of nudity, a huge amount of gore, a cast of unknowns, and a scattering of cameos Christopher Lloyd and Ving Rhames made return visits. It also features heavy nudity, sexual innuendo, and some sex. Many scenes of bloody mayhem, with lots of scary piranha attacks and many gallons of blood, mostly shown swirling around in water.
While this one unfortunately lacks whatever made the previous movie work, it's just as packed with strong violence, including lots of blood, severed limbs, and even a severed penis. The theme park idea could have been enjoyably ridiculous, but director John Gulager treats it with the same callousness as Koechner's character does. There are some highly entertaining outtakes scattered through the closing credits. Whatever the metric, this movie blows. Many topless women are shown, mostly swimming or lounging around a pool. Bush makes an unusual romantic hero, and Panabaker is an appealing and somewhat intelligent heroine.
Prepare for double the terror, double the action, and double the D's in this sequel. The celebrity cameos feel wasted, with David Hasselhoff soaking up every second of desperation. There's even one character that gets decapitated by a simple string of flags. Where did things go so horribly wrong? I found the 2010 Piranha to be a sheer blast of campy entertainment, with some world-class gore effects and a game cast. There's a sex scene between a young man and a young woman, though very little is shown.
. Where the movie succeeds is in its choice of actors. There is an attempt to recapture the gleeful sleazy trashiness of its predecessor, although I felt it tried a bit too hard, and lost some of the innocent sense of fun to be had among the severed penis sequences and, yes, I am quite aware of how ludicrous that sentence sounds. If you're hard-pressed for gratuitous nudity soaked in blood, watch the superior 2010 Piranha film instead. And yet this ghoulish mess can only barely make it to a scant 70 minutes good luck getting through the abominably unfunny end credits outtakes. . .
