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..”
by Nigel Floyd [Time Out New York]

“..some of the gags just don't "hit" or "pop", leaving the audience sort of quietly giggling to themselves..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

“..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..”
by Bruce Demara [Toronto Star]

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 :

“..the rest was a blur of weak slapstick, one over-dyed moustache and vague sexism, ageism and sizeism..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

CHILD 44 :

“..unrelentingly grim, plodding, and close-to-incoherent adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's best-selling mystery..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

UNFRIENDED :

“..a flashy new coat of paint for the "found footage" genre of horror movie, replacing wobbly handheld cameras with webcams and Skype. Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we've seen..”
by Jacob Hall [NY Daily News]

MONKEY KINGDOM :

“..these gorgeous-looking films are so much more than chronicles of nature. They have a heart and an insight that's remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ALEX OF VENICE :

“..although it's enjoyable, actor Chris Messina's directorial debut is somehow less than the sum of its parts, wading only through the shallow end of familiar human conflicts resolved too conveniently to satisfy..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

TRUE STORY :

“..lightweight script doesn't help a grandiose premise..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT :

“..plays like a dorm-room answer to modern war films, complete with the constant profanity and masculine hysterics that pass for impact in an immature script..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

THE ROAD WITHIN :

“..three superb young actors try but fail to bolster a thin script..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

BEYOND THE REACH :

“..it isn't nearly as much creepy fun as it sounds like..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE SQUEEZE :

“..between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze"..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
