Join Special Agent Finch and Professor Sarah Monroe as a mutant strain of giant ferocious piranha escape from the Amazon and eat their way toward Florida. Will the entire population of Florida be saved from complete annihilation? Featuring explosive set pieces, stunning special effects and the most fearsome marine monsters in the history of film, "Mega Piranha" is the riotously entertaining new creature feature from the makers of last year's massive DVD success, "Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus."

Bad-movie enthusiasts will doubtless have fun watching these oversized piscine predators leaping from the ocean and laying waste to Florida's coastal regions, but hasn't this tiresome, kitschy, so-bad-it's-good fad run its course?
An absolute stinker in every conceivable way.
I can't think of anything more dispiriting than a film consciously faking it for the so-bad-it's-good market.
Incredibly for a film which presumably intends to at least alarm an audience, the budget seems to have been spent entirely on set-piece explosions with no money remaining for the actual fish.
It stars former pop queen Tiffany, who topped the charts in 1987 with I Think We're Alone Now. Visit a cinema showing this and the chances are you'll know what she was singing about.
Everything about it is deliberately, winkingly atrocious -- killing the fun for those, like me, who think unwitting schlock is the juiciest kind.
Is it any good? That's the wrong question to ask of a film like this whose many plot-holes, absurdities and over-the-top idiocies are an essential part of the allure. But is it bad enough?
There's about half an hour of watchable film in here. The other hour is looping stock footage and endless scenes of people gawping at monitors.
Those who follow the "so bad it's good" school of thought will probably love it -- anyone else should avoid.
Played straight, it's initially amusing but swiftly outstays its welcome as the piranhas develop the ability to fly like fanged double decker buses and the whole caboodly tries just a bit too hard to be knowing.
A badly acted, poorly written and ineptly directed mess with dreadful special effects.
