Unapologetically gleeful about doling out the cinematic junk food that you're looking for when you sit down to devour something called, well, Piranha.

The joy of Alexandre Aja's Piranha is that he is accomplishing nothing but a bloody entertaining good time.

Filled with recognisable faces, packed with excessive blood and gore and jokes as corny as they are hilarious, Piranha 3D is, if nothing else, the most honest and unpretentious piece of filmmaking of 2010.

"Piranha 3D," although cliched, embraces its genre and is a highly-enjoyable fun B-movie.

The best example of the level of art that Piranha 3D aspires to comes when a guy gets his dick chomped off and it gracefully floats down towards you in 3D.

Aja once again proves that no one understands the aesthetic of ample arterial spray better than the foreign horror geek.

...a mildly watchable B-movie effort that could have (and should have) been so much better.

Piranha 3D gets honestly earned points for the creative energy it sustains in the arena of creatively gory dispatches, non-torture porn division.

Neither gore enthusiasts nor boobie fans will be disappointed. Piranha 3D knows what it is and embraces it, from stupid disobedience to kids in peril to sexy exploitative silliness, with a remarkable level of humor and competence.

Coarse, crass and mind-boggling shameless? Hell, yeah! Alexandre Aja's remake of the Joe Dante/John Sayles' killer-fish movie flies its trash flag high.
September 10, 2010
...this is one of the few flicks this summer that actually delivered what it promised.

A movie fueled by the wet dreams and rage fantasies of a thousand pubescent boys. Perfectly attuned to its audience -- 3D boobs, gore and dodgy science abound.

a wickedly effective cinematic union of suspense and irony, topped with an invigorating dash of dry wit

For most of Piranha 3D, Aja skates along the line separating satire/camp from horror without straying into the realm of outright parody.

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.

Too unbelievably crass to live, and wonderful because of it.
