After the events at Lake Victoria, the prehistoric school of blood-thirsty piranhas make their way into swimming pools, plumbing, and a newly opened water park.
There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Great story, amazing characters, superb action, enthralling cinematography. Yes, this is something I am glad I spent money on.
okay so I am going to chop off my dick if there is a piranha biting it??? Why didn't he just stick the knife in its head and kill it? do not watch this movie unless you want a good - well bad laugh not as good as the first one, but lots of T&A if you like to see it for that lol
Escaping into a nearby drainage lake, the prehistoric fish make their way into a local water park during it's opening weekend forcing the staff of the facility to save the guests and stop the ravenous creatures before it's too late.Overall this was an immensely and utterly enjoyable sequel that has a lot more going for it. Among the biggest positives here is the fact that this one makes for a rather enjoyable time here in detailing the cause away from the location of the first one into a more outrageous setting being quite natural and believable as there's a nice connection here following up the effects of the first one by again using the logical manner of the underground tunnels to explain everything. That of course follows up the even greater fun here of this one's seemingly glorious cheesy nature on display as there's so much fun here during the main attack of the park that it's an immensely enjoyable sequence all on it's own as the action-packed encounters are so fun and bloody that there's a lot to like on that principle alone. The viciousness of the swarm ripping into bodies and generally taking advantage of the different confines around a water-park to make for a rather exciting time throughout here unleashing plenty of action, solid gore and kills here from the savage bites and dismemberments while also giving this the kind of demented atmosphere and fun found in numerous other works here with this one really taking solid advantage of the creatures to pile on some rather goofy, fun scenarios of the creatures appearing where they really shouldn't be. AS well, the fact that this one can certainly play it straight and keep things running along nicely with some suspenseful scenes at times is a great ploy at counteracting the cheesy nature of the rest of the film where it keeps things focused on the seriousness of the creatures by featuring such great early scenes as the attack on the couple in the van as the water rapidly begins filling the van while they try to get out to safety, a later scene where they attack the friends on the wooden dock by launching themselves through the planks knocking them into the water or the fantastic night-time attack in the lake that's really eerie and chilling for the setting and the knowledge of their attacks previously. By combining all this with the fantastically cheesy sexualized attacks on the couple that are quite shocking and disturbing, the rampant well-delivered nudity and feverish gore, there's enough here to make this one wholly enjoyable enough to hold off the minor flaws present. The biggest issue here is the fact that this one tends to go for a lot more of a clichéd feeling overall here by running through the same notions as the original only it tends to feel even less impactful because of simply running along the same lines. There's a lot of similar ground covered here that came from the original, and it tends to be quite noticeable. As well, the fact that this one was filmed for 3D means that a lot of gore gags and shots look absolutely atrocious and noticeable when seen elsewhere and if that's not the format being shown in it looks awkward and clunky quite often throughout here. Otherwise, this one tended to be quite exciting and enjoyable.Rated R: Extreme Graphic and occasional sexualized Violence, Graphic Language, Full Nudity and sexual content.
Every once in a while big Hollywood studios try to pretend they like to make cheap B-movies, which usually leads to projects that can't really decide what they want to be. With that in mind the original "Piranha 3D" was surprisingly good, but this one bails on entertainment value and just goes for really obvious, easy jokes. David Hasselhoff as a lifeguard? I'm sure that got a chuckle at the board meeting, but dear Lord don't actually film it. Everything about this script is just lazy. Ever since "Jaws" creature features are obliged to have that one character that ignores the threat for his own financial gain, but here it makes even less sense than usual. The waterpark owner KNOWS there are piranhas in the nearby lake he's getting his water from, going as far as to bribe cops on a regular basis to keep it secret. The chances of a piranha-related bloodbath are roughly 99.9%, but hey he made investments or something so let's move on. What kind of a setting is a waterpark anyway, how long does it take to get out of a pool? Not very long apparently, so the last 10 minutes consists of a fake-looking blooper reel that's clearly just there to pad out the running time (and it's still only 83 minutes, not that I'm complaining). I've said it before but I just want to emphasise it: this thing is bafflingly lazy. If even the combined talents of Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames AND Gary Busey can't give your movie one entertaining scene, you're doing fundamental things wrong. Nearly unwatchable.

Well, this movie is really bad, why did they make a sequel? I don't know I guess it's to make money and that was really dumb of them to do. To me I like Piranha 3D for what it did. But this movie is so dumb, The acting is really really awful. The people in this movie is so dumb, it was ridiculous. Silent Hill: Revelation was worse, but I feel this movie is the same way. Again, what did we do Hollywood? Nothing but it feels like we have to sit and watch this, oh wow.... I guess there is one good thing about the movie and it's the effects on the piranha's, other than that nothing else, I feel like we will have to see stupid sequels like this. People I have talk too and none of them like this crap, and now I know why. Overall, a ridiculous dumb stupid awful movie, that's all I have to say.
