sure it's not the best movie ever made,,but they don't do this kind of movies any more. it has a bit of that early 80's charm over it. And Lance Henriksen is never bad in a movie. sure the script blows but what a hell it's entertaining as hell. And the effects looks very cheesy at some times. mostly on the flying piranha effects they looks darn ugly. it had been better if the fishes stayed in the sea:- those effects worked better. the music sounded like some Italian giallo film. maybe the reason for that was that the producer was Italian. iv'e got the DVD version of the <more>
film and it looks pretty good in widescreen. some scenes i wished they would have cut out, like some of the more comic characters,in a movie like this that aims for a serious story don't need unrealistic comic reliefs. like the scene when they chant *we want fish* what did the script makers think. if this was a comedy it would have been a blast,,but not when it's gonna be a horror movie. but if you ignore all the flaws in this movie and just see it for what is it's pretty OK. a forgotten little horror flick from the early 80's
Piranha II: The Spawning is a sequel to the 1978 classic Piranha directed by Joe Dante and produced by Roger Corman, the sequel is actually a pretty good movie. One thing I find interesting is that James Cameron directed this before directing movies like The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss etc. But although James Cameron did direct Piranha II and was given the credit most of the filming was done by the producer Ovidio G. Assonitis. The whole concept of Flying Fish does sound silly but that's what I like about the film, instead of making it like the first film and just have the same <more>
Piranha's eating people they did something different and make the Piranha's fly, the acting is good especially from Lance Henriksen Who would appear in later James Cameron movies like The Terminator and Aliens Piranha II: The Spawning is a great sequel to Piranha and should be seen. Check this out. 10/10
It take a special kind of awful to be funny bad. The flying piranhas are hilarious, the acting is cheesy and dumb I wouldn't have it any other way and the story is delightfully muddled and stupid. Go check it out if you want something to laugh at with friends.
An under-appreciated gem (by doctorsmoothlove)
Everyone knows the story of James Cameron's involvement in Piranha 2 by now. He famously clashed with and was fired by producer Ovidio Assonitis who served as uncredited co-director. Whatever the circumstances, Piranha 2 is much better made than it has any right to be. Unlike many films of its pedigree and era, the film is both aware of how silly its premise is while simultaneously not devolving into lame genre parody. A fine line only occasionally visible to hold up a flying killer fish.The film stars Tricia O'Neil as Anne, a married diving instructor estranged from her policeman <more>
husband, Steve, who loses a client one day to an unknown tragedy in a sunken ship. Anne and her horny son, Chris, who works as a deckhand for visitors to the coastal community. All three members of the family get plenty of screen time to develop their personalities as surly lovers and parents to a chipper joker teen. We never learn why Anne and Steve are separated but the film hints it has to do with their stubbornness. It is refreshing to see a female main character with agency both in the plot and in her sexual choices there is a very funny scene with Steve who never needs to be rescued and talks back to the men. Chris goes on to star in his own Blue Lagoon subplot with an alcoholic client's super hot daughter.After the body of the dead tourist is discovered, Anne learns that mutated piranhas have been let loose. These fish have the ability to fly and love to munch on people's necks. If you think this is similar to Alien's facehuggers, you'd be right. The film's monsters are rubber dolls that cover their victims in blood and viscera. This special effect is so much more impressive than in the first film where we barely see any interaction between the victims and the piranhas.What's even more impressive is that the film doesn't have disposable victims. Most of the main death scenes involve characters who have established themselves as jerks we root against. It's satisfying to see the two girls who trick a handicapped man into stealing food for them die. It's equally as sad to see a fisherman's son die when the fisherman has been established as the lovable crazy dude who throws dynamite all over the ocean.The film has to end and does with a final underwater sequence in the sunken ship. These sequences look like they were shot by James Cameron. They are well lighted and the actors move well through the maze of the ship. The piranhas even attack people underwater and we don't get some cutaway shot or first person view.Piranha 2 has a number of subplots like Chris's romance that only exist to be funny and for the most part they are. None of these are unique although their inclusion is welcome to fill the screen time. The delivery of lines is sometimes unintentionally funny due to dubbing but the jokes would be entertaining in any setting. I'll happily take sitcom humor in place of boring sex scenes or superfluous dialog about the creation of the monsters.
James Cameron's cinematic debut is a fun piece of hot garbage (by Woodyanders)
A tropical island resort finds itself under attack from lethal flesh-eating mutant piranha with the ability to fly. The goofy premise alone promises a certain deliciously cheesy form of low-rent entertainment that this movie most definitely delivers on. Done with an Italian producer and crew, this flick has an always welcome and refreshing blithely trashy Italian exploitation aesthetic complete with a ridiculous plot played ludicrously straight, cardboard characters, tasty gratuitous female nudity, tacky not so special effects, a pretty mean-spirited tone, and a handy helping of <more>
in-your-face graphic gore. Tricia O'Neil makes for a spunky and appealing heroine while Lance Henriksen keeps his dignity as the no-nonsense police chief. Foxy brunette Leslie Graves, busty babe Carole Davis, and slim blonde Connie Lynn Hadden all provide scrumptious eye candy. Special praise goes to Ancil Gloudon for his enjoyably two-fisted portrayal of take-charge macho fisherman Gabby. The scenes with the fake rubbery puppet fish flying and attacking people are positively hysterical. Oh yeah -- and that guy who went on to do a lot of bloated big budget blockbusters like "Titanic" and "Avatar" directed this film and co-wrote the script. A real schlocky blast.
