Piranhas hunt to kill. This type of fish is located in Lake Victoria. Spring holidays are here. Several students and tourists have gathered at Lake Victoria to enjoy themselves. Life continues at the lake as usual. However a fisherman is shredded apart at the lake after an earthquake tears through the floor of the lake. The fisherman’s body is recovered but is in a bad condition full of injuries. A conclusion is reached to close the lake but this is not a solution bearing in mind the profits the town will make from the tourists. Preparations are ongoing for a certain project that entails pornographic acting in fine locations on the lake. Several people lose their lives in a seismology study. The merrymaking at the lake turns into a massacre as piranhas devour and tear the tourists and students into pieces.
Piranha has the best cinematography ever. Shots taken are able to capture ideal scenes in water and bring into view hilarious events therein. The film portrays how dangerous it can be to have fun at an unknown lake. It all starts like a joke as the student is tossed up and down in her small boat. Shortly after she is torn into pieces as others look and scamper for safety. The fact that director Alexandre creates huge anxiety moments is unbelievable. Bloodbath scenes in piranhas are sickening. The rescue mission ends up causing more deaths by shooting the victims other than saving them.
Breathtaking scenes in the movie make it worth watching. The lake has a beautiful view of blue waters surrounded by healthy green plants. The lake is also packed with students and tourists dressed in vibrant apparel. RnB, hip hop and rap songs played at the background of the film definitely jog your memory to the good old days. The cast deserves applause for the good work done. Piranha 3D is a horror movie that instills fear without necessarily telling. The director’s great imaginative skills are an example of how horrific films should be expressed.
Bravo Piranha 3D
