Piranha 3-D Movie Review

Piranha 3D Poster Movie Review

Nudity: Yes lots and lots of it. 

I am a fan of gratuitous movies.  I think that there are not enough of them. They just don't make them anymore because they don't make any money, which I guess means people don't like them, so I am probably by myself here, but Piranha 3D was gratuitous fun.  Take your preconceptions of what you think this movie will be and then add an order of magnitude to it.  That was Piranha 3D.  Everything about this movie was more than what I expected it to be.  Except for the 3D parts, but I am just going to pretend it wasn't in 3D at all.  

Here is the some of the cast, Elizabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, and Christopher Lloyd.  How can you not love that cast.  They were thrown into a really crazy movie, that took a little bit to get going, but once it did, lets just say there were a couple of times where I covered my eyes or cringed at all the excess.  I think the director was like, were making a 3-D fish movie, no need to pull any punches.  This movie is not for everyone, it is at times hard to watch, very bloody, and has 3D boobs in your face, but if that sounds like your speed then Piranha is the movie you were hoping it would be. 

The 3-D is a complete let down.  There is no reason to go see this movie in 3-D.  It almost serves no purpose and the extra ticket cost is not worth it at all.  However if you are a fan of crazy killer fish movies, then Piranha 3 is a great choice.  I would pay to go see it in the theater, because if you wait to rent it, and this movie flops, it will be an even longer time till the next totally un-necessary overdone killer something movie gets made, and that would be a shame.
