Storyline

Lake Victoria's annual Spring party by 50,000 young revelers is about to turn into a feeding frenzy with prehistoric hunger-pains. 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. 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. Written by Cinema_Fan

fish tale
7 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK i put off seeing this when it came out for good reasons,i believe that most remakes are really bad,this one really wastes the talents of good actors and actresses,like;Elisabeth Shue,Wing Raimes,Christopher Lloyd and Richard Dreyfus.for shock value it was released in 3d.the special effects are good however,but the movie suffers from being too predictable and too gory.its like Friday the 13th meets jaws but not nearly as good as those 2 films.the Roger Corman version is a masterpiece compared to this.i really did'nt care for piranha 3d.i would say its as bad as snakes on a plane.and i heard there's a sequel around the corner.is Hollywood running out of original ideas.i cannot recommend this film to anyone,that would be terrible.all i can say is see the Roger Corman versions,yes there were 2,one was made for cable TV.in 1995 with William Katt,and yes they were both better.even the James Cameron sequel piranha 2 was better.piranha 3d stinks like dead fish.
