  • An absolute stinker in every conceivable way.

    July 16, 2010 | Rating: 1/5
  • I can't think of anything more dispiriting than a film consciously faking it for the so-bad-it's-good market.

  • Everything about it is deliberately, winkingly atrocious -- killing the fun for those, like me, who think unwitting schlock is the juiciest kind.

  • 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?

  • The designer-trashy tone is well sustained -- these people brought you Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus -- as the toothy threat moves from the Amazon to the Florida Keys.

    July 15, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Okay, so right up until about five minutes from the end, my thought process was basically "Yeah this sucks, but I mean, it doesn't deserve the worst rating. Maybe like, a full one star affair?" but then that resolution came, and I realised how very wrong I was.

    With a cover like Mega Piranha I expected some cheesy and over the top fun as I would with any movie called Mega Piranha. Even those expectations it still sucked. Mega Piranha is about a mutant strain of giant ferocious piranhas escaping from the Amazon and eat their way toward Florida. That's pretty much the closest you'll get to a logical story because according to this movie Helicopter can't kill Piranhas with missiles and machine guns, the main characters come up with the conclusion that these Piranhas can grow bigger every 36 hours with no evidence, and there's actually a point in the movie where giant Piranhas jumping into buildings making everything explode. If you think that's stupid this movie managed to outdo itself twice, like when the people actually use a Battleship to kill these Piranhas and later nuke the Piranhas, and it does nothing to kill them. Moving on from the illogical story, this is the first time I hated a transition in a movie, it just flashes white in your face and it's miracle I didn't get a seizure because it happens often in this movie. It also lacks any character development, as you'll be really surprise to see the main character kissing his love interest who I didn't know existed in this movie because both character have connection to speak of. Everything about this movie is boring from characters, dialogue, giant Piranhas, all down to the tiniest detail. As for the acting it's Razzie material at best. I like it how Paul Logan, who plays Jason Fitch, has the same expression for every emotion. As for 80s Pop Sensation Tiffany, she's just awful just like everybody else in this movie. As for the special this movie reuses stock footage of bad effects over and over again. So with all of that out of the way, there was a couple of scenes I did enjoy, but the most memorable is when Paul Logan literally kicks several jumping Piranhas attacking him. It's ridiculous and hilarious at the same time, the same with seeing giant Piranhas actually blowing up when colliding with a building. Mega Piranhas is a movie that should've embrace it's cheesy story and made it into something goofy instead of taking it seriously and making it boring. The entertainment it does provide is best done with a video search since those few moments of entertainment aren't worth sitting through this bore-fest.

    They're eating boats and alligator bodies, dammit!

    When genetic experiments get out of hand, piranhas turn into giant, flying, cannibalistic hermpahrodites that explode when they contact building materials. This is a real self-esteem movie: no matter how stupid you are in real life, you'll be convinced you're a genius compared to the people who made MEGA PIRANHA.
