Sometimes a mindless movie is just what the doctor ordered. You don’t need to invest yourself too deeply in characters; you can just sit back and enjoy the ride. That’s the kind of movie that Piranha 3DD is, you know what you’re getting going in, there’s gonna be nekkid chicks, there’s gonna be flesh eating fish and there’s gonna be gore….and that’s about it.
Here’s the story, in the aftermath of the original Piranha movie, the town where the incident happened has been devastated, the government killed everything in the lake and the town dried up. So, life has moved on, but it seems that our many teethed friends move around in deep underground lakes, and they’re using them to migrate across the southwest! Now, one man has decided to open an adult themed water park, and guess what? Yep, to save money, he’s going to pump water from a deep underground lake….and guess who’s coming to the water slide?!
While Piranha 3DD isn’t a movie that’s going to win any awards or even become a ‘cult classic’, it’s very close to those SyFy movies that we’ve seen recently, only with more blood and nudity…in other words, it’s a near perfect drive-in movie! There’s even a short appearance by David Hasselhoff as himself which makes the movie nearly perfect in my opinion.
If you’re looking for some deep interesting horror/drama, look elsewhere, if you want to see chick in bikinis chased by monstrous fish, then sit down, grab some popcorn and put your feet up, you’re in the right place!!! Based on my real love of drive-in movies, I’m giving this 4 out of 4 cigars, if you’re not a lover of low budget, low brow movies…then just move along!
