    Piranha 3DD

    ★★★

    The same level of nudity, less gore but a more entertaining story even if I still hate this slasher story rules kind of shit.
    Oh and I liked the Hoff! But even more I would have loved the film to develop (show more) a (of) the love story between Ving Rhames and Paul Sheer. I mean, just look at how Paul Sheer looks at Ving Rhames when he kicks these prianhas in the ass!

    But thats not the only reason the film couldn't catch me.
    First of all I found some scenes unintentionally funny, like when he realizes both of his arms came off.
    Also I have a problem with the story: Why does this guy need years to get the idea to try communicating in Morse code.

    A half star more for the last 10 minutes.
