When some secretly mutated piranhas are accidentally released, it becomes a race against time to stop them before they wipe out local vacationers.

This film is a complete shamble's from start to finish i ahve seen some remakes & thought yep ok not a patch on the orginal but they have tried something different, but this i know the original was made on a shoe string but it looks like titanic when compared to this mess, i wont go into the story as most people will be familiar with the original it dosent really detract from the original script aside from a few character changes however the most shocking thing about this film is that the producer's must have thought everyone who would watch this film would have there brain removed on the way in, the performance's where lousy actor's attempting to be tongue in cheek & ironic dosent really cut it, a really bad music score as well which dosent live up to fantastic one by pino donnaggio, but the biggest crime of all is that they have used effects footage from the orginal with the orginal actor's ( like how are we gonna miss that) it's like having Jaws 2, 3 & 4 & just re using all the shark attack footage from the first film Please do yourself a favour Avoid at all cost's & if u really need something to watch go back to the orginal as all this version does is leave a very nasty taste in the mouth
