The picture's biggest sin (or biggest achievement) is the fact that it manages to be stunningly short yet still have several flat, boring stretches.

This brainless and soulless throwback to exploitation cinema occasionally entertains but mostly just makes you root for carnivorous fish to do away with everyone involved.

An absolutely awful sequel that flushes any potential this franchise might have otherwise had.

'Piranha 3DD' will have you wanting to throw in "Jaws" just to wash off its stench and get the last remaining bloodthirsty and carnivorous fish out of your brain.

More fun than Piranha 3D, the original remake (if that's a thing), because it is more ridiculous.

This sequel puts such little effort into the same basic setup that it's barely even a movie.

A carnival hustle that even The Hoff should be ashamed of.

While the previous Piranha movie had just the right blend of silliness, exploitation, and fun, Piranha 3DD seems totally lost. It comes across as forced, ugly, offensive, and lazy.

Blood and guts are splashed around the frame, yet what's missing here is directorial authority, with Gulager a lousy gore zone conductor incapable of building momentum with easy lay-up horror elements.

Witless, technically slipshod, and neither remotely scary nor titillating, it pretty much fails on all levels.

...boasts a roster of hopelessly forgettable central characters and, for the most part, lurches from one poorly-conceived set-piece to the next.

Low-budget, softcore - destined to make a quick detour to DVD so sneaky, testosterone-propelled teens can easily subvert the R-rating.

Piranha 3DD is a shining example of a movie so bad that it's awful.

Tacky and intermittently entertaining is all"Piranha 3DD"sets out to be, and that is all this playfully graphic horror-comedy sequel accomplishes.

Takes the fun out of ravenous piranhas chomping down on naked women...

The first half of the film merely treads water in anticipation for the eventual bloodbath, and once the teeth start gnawing, it's just one laborious machination after another to get to the end of the movie, which stops without much of a resolution.

With most of the running time devoted to setting up and over-explaining the premise, mayhem gets short shrift.

With its too-short runtime, sloppy sense of plotting, and poor CGI, Piranha 3DD feels like a cheap-o, direct-to-DVD sequel that somehow got a more prominent summer release.

Though its title suggests new heights of outlandish comic gore (and bust sizes), Piranha 3DD feels awfully small in comparison with its predecessors.

Gulager ... mostly seems to be trying to see how much he can degrade the old Jaws formula and still have it interpreted as parody rather than apathy.
