REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..when the movie falls flat - and it does, especially in an unfunny and nauseating love scene involving a piranha hiding inside a hoo-ha - it's a drag..”
by Staci Layne Wilson [Horror.com]
“..this sequel has "outrageous" stamped across its chest, which not only ruins the joke but also could endanger the implants..”
by Jay Stone [Ottawa Citizen]
1.5 of 4

“..there's little wit or sense on view, just cheesy gross-outs and profanities strung together; plot, characters and all that other stuff are clearly beside the point, and for some potential viewers..”
by Michael Gingold [Fangoria]

“..The tempting trailer for this over-inflated sequel to 2010's B-movie horror suggested that it would deliver pneumatic bliss and bloody piscine horror in equal measure. Synthetic, lifeless and shapeless, it offers nothing of the kind. The flesh-eating pre..”

“..some of the gags just don't "hit" or "pop", leaving the audience sort of quietly giggling to themselves..”

“..sadly, a protracted first act doesn't catch fire as sundry good-looking youngsters get chomped in knockabout nastiness which isn't that effective..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Magazine]

“..oddly, Gulager's depiction of these cartoonish events seems restrained-if anything the film, it's too understated..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]

“..ludicrous pack-traveling creatures who seem to lack long-term goals..”
by Mack Rawden [Cinema Blend]
“..funny, inane and with quotable dialogue to rivalAnchorman, Piranha 3DD is too stupid to miss..”
by Stephen [Mildconcern.com]
“..despite the title's big-bosom promise, the treatment of living female flesh is largely perfunctory, as though fulfilling a contractual obligation embedded in the title..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“.."there's something in the water" all right, and apparently it's making movies (and audiences) progressively more stupid..”

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]


“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]


“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]


“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]


“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]


“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]


“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]


“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
