This poorly scripted horror film about miniature, finny "jaws" details the mating rituals of the fictional "grunion" fish (falsely introduced as "piranhas" for more box-office recognition) and their need to attack and kill humans -- either inside or outside the water. These saber-toothed wonders have been hatched from a canister of eggs on a sunken ship in front of a posh Club Med resort, which features the mating rituals of humans who at times need to attack and kill fish.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Idiotic premise has US government genetic engineering experiments creating a deadly form of grunions (hinted at being used in the Vietnam war)."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The special effects are awful (the piranhas are obviously hand puppets) and the script worse."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Geralmente, grandes cineastas dão indícios de sua genialidade mesmo em seus filmes de estréia, por pior que estes sejam. Não é o caso de James Cameron, que aparentemente reservou seus talentos para o filme seguinte."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A copy rather than a sequel, this has none of the intelligence, wit or tempo that graced the first swarm of hungry fish."
‑ , Time Out
"For curious completists only."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"As its director claims, this is the finest movie about flying piranha ever made, but otherwise only of interest to hardcore James Cameron completists."
‑ , Film4
"Thankfully James Cameron went on to bigger and better things, but who can blame him for trying to pretend this movie never existed?"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The piranha attack scenes are handled with minimal grace, giving us plenty of nice, long looks at just how fake the props are."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Oh ... my .... gawd, they fly now! This is so bad it's, well, bad."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
