Goofs

Several characters refer to the location in Venezuela as the "Amazon basin". The river, however, is clearly described as the Orinoco, which has its own basin and drains into the Carribean Sea; the Amazon basin is quite separate and drains into the South Atlantic. See more »

My God!!! There are piranhas as big 747s jumping out of the river and landing on buildings and exploding!!
10 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Mega Piranha is on, right now on the SciFi Channel (I refuse to call that channel what its actually been renamed; that's just bloody stupid). There are piranhas as big as jumbo jets jumping out of the river and exploding on impact. Some bad-ass martial arts dude just used some mixed martial arts to kill some baby piranhas which were as big as refrigerators. Anyway, I was just talking to a buddy of mine. Years ago back in junior high, my friends and I used to come up with stupid ideas for movies to pass the time away in school. Well, one of those ideas were about giant piranhas as big as Godzilla terrorizing some city. We were kids and we knew that was frig gin' stupid. But Asylum Films, they're laughing all the way to the bank. I went hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to get a master's degree to teach English Lit. to kids who don't even give a crap when I could have taken all those stupid ideas for movies way back in the day and made them for the SciFi Channel. Jesus! I am an idiot!
