Piranha 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Piranha 3D is somewhat unique in terms of how it became a 3D title. Rather than shoot natively in 3D, Director Alexandre Aja chose to shoot in 2D with a 3D conversion during post production in mind, his every shot looking towards the conversion process and ensuring that the eventual 3D image would be of a high quality meeting his standards. Fortunately, his approach paid off. Piranha 3D doesn't compete with Avatar or the best digitally-animated 3D pictures, but it's a solid and exceptionally fun 3D transfer that's got just the right amount of punch to wow viewers and compliment the craziness that's packed into Piranha's 88-minute runtime. First, the transfer's general qualities. In terms of detail, color, and the like, Piranha's 3D transfer is practically transparent compared to its 2D counterpart. Detail ranges between good and exceptional; the transfer handles the sandy and rocky terrain around Lake Victoria quite well, while also revealing the intricacies of skin textures (of which there are many) and clothing (what little there may be) at a level that's on par with a high quality Blu-ray release. Colors still favor that yellow/orange tinge, which is reflected in flesh tones, a suitable choice for emphasizing the sun and fun of spring break and the ultra-violence of the Piranha attacks alike. Unfortunately, blacks appear a bit too dark and crush is evident in a few scenes, notably in chapter three as Fallon and Forester discover the first dead body. That's the only area in which the 3D drastically differs from the 2D version; slight banding is evident in 3D, as it was in 2D, but on the whole, the transfers are practically mirror images of one another, save for the darker and slightly crushing blacks.

As for the transfer's 3D attributes, Piranha enjoys far more hits than misses. The opening Dimension logo, as well as most of the on-screen titles and various objects scattered throughout the movie are prone to double imagery or apparent transparency, but such is the exception to the rule outside of text, which does nicely hover off the screen. The vast majority of the image is stable and natural, with solid, but not exceptional, amounts of depth evident in every scene. The transfer does a fine job of differentiating foreground and background objects and allowing viewers to gauge the spacing between in-frame objects. Underwater scenes fare quite well, no surprise considering that aquatic Documentaries are currently among Blu-ray 3D's most plentiful releases. Indeed, underwater photography and 3D seem to go together quite well, and Piranha is no exception. From the opening shots of Richard Dreyfuss' character being torn to pieces by the swirling mass of Piranha to any number of calm or violent and bloody scenes below the surface of Lake Victoria, the transfer presents a great sense of depth and distance in such scenes, as much, if not more so, than is evident above the surface. Piranha is also home to several gimmick 3D shots, some of which work, some of which don't, but all of which fit right into the good-natured fun around which the movie is built. When Sheriff Forester pulls her taser out early in the movie, it and her arm seem to extend beyond the screen, but when a character vomits off the side of a boat and onto the camera later in the movie, the effect flops in 3D. Arguably the film's most delightful moment comes when Ving Rhames' character chops up a wave of Piranha using an outboard motor, sending chunks of dead fish up into the air and directly into viewers' living rooms. Despite its non-native status, Piranha 3D is a strong, borderline exceptional, 3D transfer; Director Alexandre Aja's film leaves nothing to the imagination, and a 3D viewing only enhances the squirmy, grotesque fun factor the movie has to offer.


Piranha 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Piranha's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is as aggressive as its bad guys, and rarely is the track not jumping with some sort of robust sonic activity. The track handles water elements quite well; whether the calmer flowing of water as heard during surface shots that allows the liquid to spread all through the soundstage or the heavy pressure of underwater segments that come with an immersive sense of depth through seamless surround usage and bass, Sony's lossless track does right by one of the film's most critical elements. Surrounds are used extensively throughout, not only in recreating various aqua environments but in delivering action sound effects, screaming swimmers, gunshots, explosions, and dance music. The track is constantly pulling listeners into the fun, supported by some potent LFE that adds plenty of punch to an already active soundtrack. Both the front and surround channels carry environmental atmospherics, whether buzzing insects in one nighttime scene or the general din of spring break -- chatty teens, background music, passing vehicles -- as heard in the calmer opening act. This is an all-inclusive, wonderfully immersive soundtrack that suits the movie well.
