He gets the bloody mess off to an interesting start by having Richard Dreyfuss in the film. Jack makes a daring attempt to rescue his son and his friends who are stuck in New York and who have managed to survive not only a massive wave but also freezing cold temperatures that could possibly kill them. Horror Each year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria, Arizona explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 residents for the annual Spring Break celebration. The film doesn't shy away from the bloody truth. Roth has a total of maybe two scenes as does Lloyd. Rhames, I thought was going to have a more hero type role, he doesn't.
I'd go with the latter because the film isn't scary. The film is one for the people who cheer when someone has their legs torn off. I'm not letting that affect my review for the film, but I can sense that the film was going to go for one of those jump-scare-abrupt endings. Is this a rewarded issue or have you customise it ones self? This film is full of naked women, left right and centre. Probably not, but the film is fun and excessively violent, which makes for a good time for those looking for b- movie horror goodness.
Piranha is full of cheesy moments, and it works. Plot: Lake Victoria's annual Spring party by 50,000 young revelers is about to turn into a feeding frenzy with prehistoric hunger-pains. They've been feeding off each other for millions of years and now they have a variety of meat to pick from. It went on to have a sequel, to be directed by the now famous James Cameron and it seems that it is time for a remake, in 3D no less. So people die in bloody, over the top, funny ways. Dreyfuss only shows up at the beginning of the film.
. A nod to Jaws no doubt, but one can only assume that he had him in here to say that this film is either a: More scarier or B: More dangerous. An underwater tremor unleashes thousands of hungry Piranha that have thought to have been extinct for millions of years. This year, there's something more to worry about than the usual hangovers and complaints from locals, a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. The theatre lost power near the end, so the last 3 or so minutes of the film we saw with no sound, but I could tell what was going to happen, even with the lack of audio.
There they discover that it has been raining non-stop for the past 3 weeks, and after a series of weather-related disasters begin to occur over the world, everybody realizes the world is entering a new Ice Age and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south. Also, if you're not a fan of naked women, you might want to stay away from this one. Another person wanting a piece of the pie. But then, an earthquake opens an underwater chasm, releasing an enormous swarm of ancient Piranha that have been dormant for thousands of years, now with a taste for human flesh. Do we need a remake? I expected to have more fun with it than I did. So it's Spring Break, so the fish have hundreds of young drunk teenagers to eat, and boy do they eat. One shark, or thousands of Piranhas? Piranha delivers on the levels it aims for, take that as you want to.
It's weird and funny at the same time because it comes out of nowhere. The film is in 3D. With a motley crew of strangers thrown together to defend these shores, it is now up to them to prevent the largest eat-out in human, and piranha, history. Piranha was, what some people called, a rip off of Jaws. But what he does not know is that this event will trigger a massive climate shift that will affect the world population. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York to attend an event. The film decides to stick with the blood and boobs.
The film could have used more of it's cast. Piranha's can strip a cow to it's bones in minutes, these guys are more aggressive. Although I did enjoy it more than other 3D films I've seen. Boobs in 3D, fish in 3D but the things that were used the most were the underwater coral reefs. But then, an earthquake opens an underwater chasm, releasing an enormous swarm of ancient Piranha that have been dormant for thousands of years, now with a taste for human flesh. Once again, an interesting cast that is not put to good use.
All of them are underused. We have Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd and Eli Roth. With knee-trembler's above the waves and tremors below, released from their dormant sleep, thousands upon thousands of flesh-eating nippers are released into the lake with whetted appetites and razor-sharp teeth. Bad timing, because it's Spring Break. Piranha 3D is a hoot, for those who know what they are getting into. Alexandre Aja directs this film, let's just forget he did Mirrors okay? There is even an underwater naked swimming dance sequence set to opera music.
