Piranha 3DD Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Anchor Bay hasn't released separate, retail 2D and 3D editions of Piranha 3DD (or Piranha DD, as its 2D-only version is affectionally known and available through Redbox rental only), so here's a rundown of both transfers. The 2D image is a real dazzler, an elite Blu-ray presentation that rivals anything else on the format, particularly other digital pictures. There's an over-pumped warmth to the image, with bronze and red skin tones and hot colors the name of the game, but it's not so exaggerated as to destabilize the image or take it too far from a sense of reality. Light blue skies remain light blue, sparkly pool waters true to life, the water park's yellow employee T-shirts not too over-saturated, blood reds gut-churning realistic, and so on. As for fine detail, it's extraordinary. The image is not only as sharp as they come, but every single surface is meticulously defined, right down to the tiniest pore on human faces, manmade textures around the water park, or the intricate little touches on Hasselhoff's lifeguard jacket. Clarity is simply astounding, even in the darker scenes that do clash with the sunlit park sequences but that remain sharp and grounded with even black levels and honest low-light details. Murky underwater shots don't offer much in the way of raw textures, but there's an absence of banding in such shots that helps the moment (and the transfer) immensely. Overall, the 2D portion of this package rocks. It's R-rated, adults-only reference material through-and-through.

The 3D presentation isn't the finest on the market, but it's quite good. Depth is constant and natural, whether in the opening dark moments or in the bright, spacious confines of the water park. A newscast at the beginning of the movie and, not too much further into the movie, a commercial for the water park, both offer a very clear and accentuated sense of slight space between the various layers, several on the latter and only the TV station logo on the former. Generally, people and objects are naturally shapely. Shots on water's surface are so good that viewers might be getting up to fetch a towel to clean up the liquid that appears to be running out of the screen and onto the living room floor. There are some fair screen-popping visuals, such as piranha darting towards the viewer (there's a couple of shots that will literally make the audience jump!) and one instance of a bloody stump protruding from the screen. There's not as much 3D cleavage as expected and not a ton of gratuitous breast-level shots. One would think that a movie with "3DD" in the title would be one step removed from a porno with jiggling breasts consistently bouncing out of the screen, but not really. The review equipment (Panasonic plasma, Sony standalone 3D player) exhibited a few instances of excess crosstalk, but such occurrences were relatively few. The 3D image also holds up nicely in terms of color, detail, sharpness, and general stability. There's no real loss of brightness or clarity going from 2D to 3D. This isn't the end-all, be-all of 3D images, but Anchor Bay's 2D image is exemplary from beginning to end.

Note that all screenshots are taken directly from the included 2D-only disc.


Piranha 3DD Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Piranha 3DD invades Blu-ray with a strongly-executed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Probably the primary ingredient here is the thumping bass and high-energy dance tunes that company the poolside water park scenes. There's a consistent, natural spacing, potent bass, and a very evident lifelike vigor. The surround channels carry a bit of the load, allowing for a sense of completeness that places the listener in the middle of the sun and fun and, later, all the blood and crud. Those chaotic moments late in the movie are equally well done, featuring screaming souls in every speaker and darting piranha zipping all over the stage. The effects are never really overly represented or sonically phony. It's a well-balanced presentation that doesn't allow the energy of the moment to dictate an over-exaggerated sonic sensation. In fact, it might be said the track is at times playful in the earlier scenes and with a harder edge later, both reflective of the moment but not all that far removed from lifelike accuracy. Dialogue is consistently balanced and grounded in the center channel. This track makes good use of the entire stage and range. It's not one of the best of the best in terms of sheer activity, raw volume, or absolute seamlessness, but it's a strong overall performer that suits this movie very well.
