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..”

“..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..”

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]


“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]


“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]


“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]


“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]


“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]


“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]


“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]


“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]


“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
