The film was shot in 2-D and converted to 3-D using the Reali-D conversion process developed by the company, Inner-D. Unlike other 3-D converted films, this movie was always planned to be 3-D. See more »

Goofs

To help Kelly from the sinking boat, Jake dove under water holding a walkie talkie. It would have been impossible to use the walkie talkie because it should be shorted from being soaked in water. Jake however, was able to call his Mom on the walkie talkie to drag them from away from the sinking boat. As equipment used on the Sheriff's Dept. patrol boat on the water it would make sense the hand held two way radio Jake used was a waterproof Marine model walkie talkie like the Motorala EX560 XLS which meets JSI4 standards (submersible to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes) .

The Best movie about Killer Piranhas ever made.
20 August 2010 | by Loving_SilenceSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was going to be just AWFUL. However I was mistaken, it was actually pretty good. The acting, as I would've expected was mediocre, but no one in the cast was destined to shine in this film. I also had a good time watching the film, I was really happy how the Piranhas looked. Don't go in expecting a masterpiece like Citizen Kane or Schindler's List, cause you'll definitely be disappointed, but with a movie title like this, who would? Just go in expecting some laughter and have some fun with it. Also there's a lot of nudity and gore, so I don't advice parents to take your kids in theater to watch this film. Piranha 3-D lived up to its title, featuring Killer Piranhas with 3-D. It isn't in any way perfect, but then again, it doesn't need to be.

7/10
