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.

Tacky and intermittently entertaining is all"Piranha 3DD"sets out to be, and that is all this playfully graphic horror-comedy sequel accomplishes.

Gulager ... mostly seems to be trying to see how much he can degrade the old Jaws formula and still have it interpreted as parody rather than apathy.

The picture's biggest sin (or biggest achievement) is the fact that it manages to be stunningly short yet still have several flat, boring stretches.

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.

The director, John Gulager, has no idea how to mix his ingredients to create a savvy self-parody.

This brainless and soulless throwback to exploitation cinema occasionally entertains but mostly just makes you root for carnivorous fish to do away with everyone involved.

With most of the running time devoted to setting up and over-explaining the premise, mayhem gets short shrift.

It's not outrageous enough to warrant a you-gotta-see-this-to-believe-it screening, and the gore is nothing that gore fans haven't seen a hundred times before.

An absolutely awful sequel that flushes any potential this franchise might have otherwise had.
