Piranha 3D review

19 August 2010 12:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Does this 3D remake improve on Joe Dante’s 1978 original, or is it just dead in the water? Here’s our review of Piranha 3D

It’s been a thoroughly 80s summer. We’ve already seen the throwback action of The A-Team and The Expendables, and the high-kicking return of The Karate Kid. And in the dying days of the sunny season, along swims Piranha 3D, a movie with its fins fully immersed in the decade that subtlety forgot.

A remake of Joe Dante’s 1978 original, which was the better of an entire shoal of low-budget rip-offs that appeared in the wake of Jaws, Piranha 3D replays the exploitative gore and sleaze of late-70s and 80s grindhouse pictures with relish. A 90-minute dervish of bikinis, breasts and blood, director Alexandre Aja’s movie is gleefully, hedonistically salacious and shamelessly gory.
