Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bad-movie enthusiasts will doubtless have fun watching these oversized piscine predators leaping from the ocean and laying waste to Florida's coastal regions, but hasn't this tiresome, kitschy, so-bad-it's-good fad run its course?"
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"I can't think of anything more dispiriting than a film consciously faking it for the so-bad-it's-good market."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Everything about it is deliberately, winkingly atrocious -- killing the fun for those, like me, who think unwitting schlock is the juiciest kind."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"There's about half an hour of watchable film in here. The other hour is looping stock footage and endless scenes of people gawping at monitors."
‑ Robbie Collin, News of the World
"A badly acted, poorly written and ineptly directed mess with dreadful special effects."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"We can ridicule every frame."
‑ Matt Glasby, Total Film
"Incredibly for a film which presumably intends to at least alarm an audience, the budget seems to have been spent entirely on set-piece explosions with no money remaining for the actual fish."
‑ James O'Brien, Daily Mail [UK]
"Is it any good? That's the wrong question to ask of a film like this whose many plot-holes, absurdities and over-the-top idiocies are an essential part of the allure. But is it bad enough?"
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"Those who follow the "so bad it's good" school of thought will probably love it -- anyone else should avoid."
‑ Sloan Freer, Radio Times
"Sadly, the funniest thing about this film is the cast list, because filmmaker Forsberg simply doesn't have a clue how to put them to any use at all. There's so much camp value that it's not even funny. But it's not even remotely funny."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"An absolute stinker in every conceivable way."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"It stars former pop queen Tiffany, who topped the charts in 1987 with I Think We're Alone Now. Visit a cinema showing this and the chances are you'll know what she was singing about."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"The designer-trashy tone is well sustained -- these people brought you Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus -- as the toothy threat moves from the Amazon to the Florida Keys."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Played straight, it's initially amusing but swiftly outstays its welcome as the piranhas develop the ability to fly like fanged double decker buses and the whole caboodly tries just a bit too hard to be knowing."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
