      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It strains to up the gore and self-awareness of it predecessor, and -- despite some game celebrity cameos -- the result is a dispiriting echo of 2010's horror-comedy.

      Steve D The original wasn't good, this is worse. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/18/23 Full Review Jes B This was just too funny. I laughed a ton. This is definitely not meant to be taken too seriously. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/05/23 Full Review Courtney K much worse than the first; but still a few fun scenes. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review lindsay s Give me more Piranha movies please. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Christopher P Don't get me wrong… I figured this would be dumb, but this is F***ING STUPID! Seriously! This was written for 1985 when teen audiences would have just been happy they saw some boobs. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/28/22 Full Review Audience Member Still a good mindless change of pace with no thinking required but with less gratuitousness, gruesomeness and gore as it's predecessor and central characters that are not as impactful and compelling as the first despite some returning faces and a couple new ones, this explains why they did not make a third.

      Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times Tacky and intermittently entertaining is all"Piranha 3DD"sets out to be, and that is all this playfully graphic horror-comedy sequel accomplishes. Rated: 3/5 Jun 4, 2012 Full Review Kyle Anderson Entertainment Weekly The first half of the film merely treads water in anticipation for the eventual bloodbath, and once the teeth start gnawing, it's just one laborious machination after another to get to the end of the movie, which stops without much of a resolution. Rated: D+ Jun 2, 2012 Full Review Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter With most of the running time devoted to setting up and over-explaining the premise, mayhem gets short shrift. Jun 2, 2012 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh The previous film was surprisingly delightful, with those successes being totally absent from this follow-up. Rated: 2/5 Sep 24, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The gore is a bit limited at first, while the computer-animated chompers still look terribly fake, but the over-the-top violence soon supplements the routine nakedness. Rated: 4/10 Dec 2, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The film also features gratuitous cameos from the likes of Gary Busey being Gary Busey and, in a more extended cameo, David Hasselhoff being David Hasselhoff. Rated: 1.0/4.0 Sep 20, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
