Ok boys and girls it was review night for me last night and though I did tweet out that I was going to review “Safe” at a last minute change of mind, mainly to one of my friends going in to see Piranha 3DD, I decided to go in and see that with him instead.
Let me start off by saying it’s extremely hard to take a film seriously that has a selling point of DD in the title and yes that is a a selling point to the male population of between 18-25, but hey, this film isn’t supposed to be serious it’s a comedy-horror and I say horror loosely.
Piranha 3DD – Blazing Minds Film Review
So after the complete carnage of the previous film (Piranha 3D), those hungry prehistoric Piranhas are back to cause more bloodshed and complete silliness in a water park called Big Wet, where scantily clad teenage girls flaunt their stuff to the patrons and to the cinema watching audience in eye-popping 3D.
The Piranha are vicious little buggers and they like nothing better than chomping down on some of the DD chested woman in the water park and boy do they make a meal of them.
Piranha 3DD is completely daft, with loads of bad acting, not much of a script, but it makes up for what it lacks in the laughs department. You find yourself laughing at things you probably shouldn’t be laughing at and without spoiling anything for those going to see the film, lets just say that a man’s private part aren’t safe from the Piranha in the bedroom during a bit of how’s your father
It all kind of reminds me of an early 80′s, badly made, slasher movie, but with Piranhas instead of a Jason or Freddy character to slash up the teenagers at the lack
I just loved the way that David Hasselhoff, takes the mickey out of himself during the film as he plays himself, even to the point of doing the famous Baywatch run in slow motion, only to stop half way through, crouch down and then say “F*** me, I’m getting old” had me in stitches.
Yes It’s In 3D!
It amazes me sometimes that you get a massive budget film made in 3D and the 3D is completely rubbish and then you get a film like Piranha 3DD that is probably made on a shoestring and the 3D is far better, there’s a good use of depth, the Piranhas do work extremely well in 3D, even the little ones, special at the beginning with Gary Busey spitting one out towards the audience.
So the moral of 3D is, if films on a small budget can do such a good job, then why the hell can’t the major big releases do the same, without making feeble excuses.
Overall Thoughts For Piranha 3DD
It’s daft, funny, the 3D is very good, did I say it was daft. The fact that there are so many laughs in the movie, made me ponder on what to rate the film, do I rate it on the production or the slightly bad acting or even on a merit that the film was so enjoyable with its comedic elements, so, I opted for the later. I’ve rated Piranha 3DD on the fact that it was funny and enjoyable in a B-Movie kind of way
