Piranha 3D

8 09 2010

“Are you dying to get wet?”

A total throwback to the fun and cheesy horror b-movies of the past, complete with 3D and cameos from none other than Christopher Lloyd and Richard Dreyfuss (pretty cool casting if you ask me).  Worth seeing with a good group of friends after a few drinks, but only if you’re a fan of these sort of parodies, and if you can stomach the gore (the beach massacre scene is insanely over-the-top).  I found this to have way more laughs than some similar (and recent) movies like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, but even so there are some lulls and a few moments with the film’s two young love interests that are just awkward to sit through.  But it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect, so you’ll get your money’s worth if you’re into this sort of thing (which I very much am).

Great shout, and I’m loving the bravado marking!!

I saw this with two mates, we spoke / shouted all the way through it – as did the entire audience – and thought it was great, cheap, camp, sleazy fun. Can’t understand why people are expecting so much more of this… need their expectations re-set I think!
