Piranha II: The Spawning Review

Ahhhh yeah!!!! All of your favorite piranhas are back in town! You got Bitey, Nibbler, Toecutter, Copernicus Jr., Scooty Puff, Beaker, Sparkle, Fifthwheel, Brown Cloud, The Larry, Citizen [...], Whisker Biscuit, Chompers, Slappy, Menlo Schwartzer, The [...], Inspector Underwear, Skidmark and introducing the new piranha: Sir-Flies-A-Little (With the Help of Wires)! Imagine how excited I was!!! So I crammed the DVD in the trusty ol’ DVD player and the first thing I noticed was how [...] the picture looks…what the [...]?! The second thing I noticed was this movie [...] total [...] [...]!!!!!!!!!

The first movie might have just been OK, but it was still watchable in a cheesy kinda sort of way. Part 2 on the other hand is just plan boring. There is way less piranha action and the little action there is is [...] pathetic. It’s all shot in the dark or with such quick shots you can barely even see what’s happening. Very disappointing.

The only saving grace in this cluster[...] is it has an early performance by Lance Henriksen, who I think always turns in a good performance no matter how [...]the movie.
