I had to give Piranha 4 stars just to even out these rubbish reviews that are so wide off the mark it beggers belief,people seem to have taken this movie way too seriously ! Lighten up folks ! What did you expect? a serious frightening horror like Halloween or Susperia !
This has to be the most fun i've had watching a movie in 2010 ( apart from kick ass), it delivers everything it says on the tin, you want gore ? - you got it, you want T&A and hot girls ? - you got it, you want a tight paced action movie? - you got it, you want some dumb funny lines and humour? - you got it. You want a couple of cool cameos from Richard Dreyfuss reprising his role from jaws and Christopher Lloyd reprising Doc Brown? ( ok well the latter isn't true but it's very doc like!) you got it all folks!
This isn't really a remake of joe dante's 1978 original, it has a different story entirely and this is more a reboot than remake. The spring break setting works for the movie and the story is slightly reminiscent of jaws in places. Big seaside weekend is being threatened by killer shark..er..i mean fish !
Ok ,so it's dumb ! It's meant to be!!! it's not supposed to be straight horror or high art but if its entertainment you want in a tight paced 88 mins then this movie delivers. Lines like "They stole my penis" weren't put there due to a bad script with poor dialogue, it's meant to be that way!. I personally found this movie hilarious in places !
When i saw this movie i got exactly what i thought it would be , a dumb comedy horror with lots of gore and i was completely happy when i walked out of the cinema with my expectations delivered.
GREAT FUN BUT PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS MOVIE SERIOUSLY !
