Many new 3D films aren't designed for the medium, but Piranha 3D is ideal: an exploitation movie with lashings of blood, bouncing bare breasts, and masticated body parts being thrown around, all fake as hell and often funny.
Crasser than even a movie with Eli Roth as the host of a wet T-shirt contest needs to be, yet there's no denying that director Alexandre Aja stages the flesh-eating, comin'-at-ya chaos with bloodthirsty glee.
