Piranha 3DD - Spoiler Free Review

Piranha 3D was a pretty awesome movie.  It had a great mix of horror and comedy and some scene stealing cameos which made my inner nerd SQUEE.  I have just got back from viewing the sequel Piranha 3DD and am left with a great sense of disappointment, both in the movie and being out £14 for seeing it.

Piranha 3D had a terrific set up and it developed the characters so you could genuinely give a shit about whether or not they survived the events of the movie.  The same could not be said of the follow-up installment. 

The piranha look bizarre and have a new kind of armour plated head, they also growl, which is a bit weird for a fish.  One would think the setting of a water park would give a chance for the director to build tension by trapping victims in areas completely surrounded by the flesh eating fish, but the setting is under utilised and is mainly used to show the boobies of every woman who does not have a speaking line.  I was left wondering if the director had actually seen the first movie as the emphasis was pro-boobies, anti-piranha's actually attacking people.  The plot was quite flimsy and left several threads hanging that my suspension of disbelief would just not ignore.  The main characters were so flat that I genuinely cannot remember any of their names, despite me normally being awesome at remembering characters names and I only got home ten minutes ago.

There are some highlights to the movie, the opening scene is certainly worth seeing and the Hoff's cameo (as shown in the trailer) is one of the best parts of the movie.  Christopher Lloyd's reappearance is highly entertaining and the credits were worth staying for.

Fans of the first movie should not get their hopes up too high for this sequel, but people who found the first one too gorey should have no problem with this one and may even enjoy it.

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
