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

This is not a movie. This is a joke.
25 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

A bad one.

To everyone who thinks - hey, maybe this movie is not as bad as it's expected to be - I have one thing to say - you're right. It's not AS bad. It's worse.

I've never written a single review in my life but after watching this piece of junk, I need to vent. I can't even begin to describe how idiotic this movie is. I knew I wasn't in for a masterpiece or anything, but this is just wrong. How can you go into film distribution with this piece of crap and just plain rob people of their money. The 3D quality sucked balls.

If it wasn't for the last scene I would've settled with "disappointing and extremely stupid", but that lame ending was just a slap in the face. I just sat there an extra 5 minutes in disbelief. Right now I'm thinking this has got to be the stupidest movie I've ever watched. And that's saying a lot. I could've spent 88 minutes just staring at the blank wall. It would've been less frustrating and futile. I want a refund!
