SYNOPSIS: A US Government agent is sent to Venezuela to investigate the death of a diplomat. Turns out he wasn't killed by terrorists but by escaped, genetically-altered, giant super-piranhas that double in size every few hours. Now, with the help of the team of scientists that accidentally created them, he must dodge the crazy Venezuelan dictator and try to save Florida from the...MEGA PIRANHA!

Fitch Is a...Ninja?
Fitch is there. Diaz says "Get him!" Even though they're all looking at him, he's suddenly... Just. Not. There.

Worst Special Effect
Flying Fish
The giant, giant piranhas are jumping out of the water. To fly into buildings. And towers. And explode. For no good reason. Even they don't buy it.

Worst Science
Migration Patterns, and Electricity Mutates Them
You can't electrocute or poison them because that might cause "reproductions" and mutations. So instead, they're going to build a concrete wall and drain the estuary. They're growing new organs, too. Oh, and it's a hermaphrodite. Then...Eli shows the "migration pattern" data. Within 48 hours, they'll be all over the U.S.! Provided, of course, that fish can somehow move at Mach 3.
These Are the Tanks We Get
The tanks switch color underwater!
I Get a Kick out of Fish
Fitch bicycle-kicks fish after fish as they fly out at him. Owowowowowow.

Worst Picture
She's "Good With Tools"
Fuel is at 410. Then 170. Then 420. They took a bullet to the fuel line. But maybe the scientists can "rig something." Fitch says the oxygen tank won't work. She says she can make anything burn. Sure enough, they have a cheesy boost. The fuel gauge goes different ways.

The Plan
I just don't care anymore. Fitch goes up to the copter to find Eli captured by the Venezuelans. Don't ask me how. He takes out the pilot with a flare gun. Head-exploding fun. Eventually, Fitch kills the Venezuelan colonel by getting a fish to eat the copter.
