Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: What is disturbing is the talent and distinction of much of the cast, whose mere presence seems to signify an element of smart, self-conscious fun that the movie does not really supply. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Aug 26, 2010

Fresh: It's hard to imagine how scenes of mass dismemberment set during a wet T-shirt contest could be staged any better. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 26, 2010

Fresh: Piranha 3D ends the summer on a note of shamelessly entertaining B movie bottomfeeding. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 26, 2010

Fresh: For most of Piranha 3D, Aja skates along the line separating satire/camp from horror without straying into the realm of outright parody. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Sep 1, 2010

Blood + Playboy + Bad Acting = Win.

Graphic scenes

Saw this in the movies in 3D, and it was very graphic. It starts off really slow, and has no shortage of nude women and party scenes on the beach which became extemely boring. After about 40 minutes, the blood started and didn't stop until the end. I wouldn't watch it twice because the characters were weak, and certain situations just defied logic.

Is this a horror, comedy or R-rated movie?

The nude and boobs scenes are entertaining! Especially the two girls swim like mermaid. I have no idea how to rate this movie!
