Consensus: Playing exactly to expectations for a movie about killer fish run amok, Piranha 3-D dishes out gore, guffaws and gratuitous nudity with equal glee.

Piranha 3D is more funny than disgusting, even when screen fills with half-nude swimmers, bobbing like human dumplings in a roiling vat of borscht. This isn't just sick, it's clas-sick!

This moderately entertaining popcorn thriller recaptures the B-movie spirit of such vintage schlockmeisters as Samuel Z. Arkoff and Roger Corman.

The joy of Alexandre Aja's Piranha is that he is accomplishing nothing but a bloody entertaining good time.

For most of Piranha 3D, Aja skates along the line separating satire/camp from horror without straying into the realm of outright parody.

Piranha 3D ends the summer on a note of shamelessly entertaining B movie bottomfeeding.

Trespass

Filled with recognisable faces, packed with excessive blood and gore and jokes as corny as they are hilarious, Piranha 3D is, if nothing else, the most honest and unpretentious piece of filmmaking of 2010.

If you're looking for signs of intelligent life -- well, did you really expect to find them in a remake of a Seventies B-movie anyway?

L.A. Weekly

Horny horror-movie revelers tend to deserve what's coming to them, a sentiment French-born director Alexandre Aja embraces with maniacal glee in a third-act massacre that's downright ruthless.

"Piranha 3D," although cliched, embraces its genre and is a highly-enjoyable fun B-movie.

Piranha is one of the goriest films in recent years, and there is far too much random nudity in the first half. Taking that into account, this is actually a… More
