Piranha 3-D Reviews

March 29, 2011
Piranha 3D is more funny than disgusting, even when screen fills with half-nude swimmers, bobbing like human dumplings in a roiling vat of borscht. This isn't just sick, it's clas-sick!

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

If you're looking for signs of intelligent life -- well, did you really expect to find them in a remake of a Seventies B-movie anyway?

August 26, 2010
This moderately entertaining popcorn thriller recaptures the B-movie spirit of such vintage schlockmeisters as Samuel Z. Arkoff and Roger Corman.
August 26, 2010
Piranha 3D ends the summer on a note of shamelessly entertaining B movie bottomfeeding.

Horny horror-movie revelers tend to deserve what's coming to them, a sentiment French-born director Alexandre Aja embraces with maniacal glee in a third-act massacre that's downright ruthless.
August 26, 2010
An awe-inspiring, stomach-churning journey into blood, gore, and boobs directed by one of France's most talented horror auteurs, Alexandre Aja.

That most unlikely of remakes -- an improvement.

August 23, 2010
What is disturbing is the talent and distinction of much of the cast, whose mere presence seems to signify an element of smart, self-conscious fun that the movie does not really supply.

Aja's ability to spoof an easy target gives 'Piranha 3-D' its primary thrill factor. All those scenes of wriggling naked bodies torn to shreds have obvious cathartic potential.
August 22, 2010
A movie this adolescently dirty-minded could hardly pass up a chance to go to Lake Titicaca.

[Proves] yet again that there's no concept so foolproof filmmakers can't screw it up.

It's hard to imagine how scenes of mass dismemberment set during a wet T-shirt contest could be staged any better.

These bros and bimbos are jerk tartare. Go, fish, go!

Piranha 3D goes for the jugular. And generally misses, but generally in an amusing way.

A bloody entertaining blast of a flesh-eating fish-out-of-water story.
August 19, 2010
[Tries] so hard for the laughs and the allusions amid all the gore, and endless bloodbath of bare naked ladies, that it completely forgets to frighten anyone.

Mere words cannot describe how awesomely gnarly Piranha 3D is, how hugely entertaining, and how urgently you must get yourself to the theatre to see it. Like, now.
August 19, 2010
The 32-year-old carnivorous fish franchise has lost none of its bite, serving up a fresh batch of spring-break revelers for the fearsome creatures to attack.
August 19, 2010
Aja serves up the tongue-in-cheek thrills, CGI-enhanced gore and gratuitous nudity with such unabashed relish that this may prove to be the summer's break-out horror hit.
