Despite some fun gore and carnage in the final 30 minutes, Piranha lacks any real bite. Watching it in 2-D, I realized the only thing I missed without the 3-D were lots of boobs, and several floating body parts (including one cast member’s “member”). The biggest problem is that it spends too much time trying to be tongue in cheek and is more of a distraction…because they’re trying too hard. The people behind the film also took a page out of “Quarantine’s” marketing campaign and decided to use the final shot of the movie in the trailer…not that this was a good one anyway. Still would have been nice to have had the chance to be surprised. Not awful, just not as good/bad as it should have been.
