Jaws 2

( 9 )

Overview

Despite being a less well-regarded virtual remake of the original film, Jaws 2 earned a tidy sum at the box office by combining its predecessor's winning formula with the popular teen horror craze, helping to spawn the era of blockbuster sequels. Roy Scheider returns as Sheriff Martin Brody, whose small resort town of Amity is poised to bounce back from the economic hardship it encountered after becoming widely known as the site of vicious shark attacks.

Overview

Despite being a less well-regarded virtual remake of the original film, Jaws 2 earned a tidy sum at the box office by combining its predecessor's winning formula with the popular teen horror craze, helping to spawn the era of blockbuster sequels. Roy Scheider returns as Sheriff Martin Brody, whose small resort town of Amity is poised to bounce back from the economic hardship it encountered after becoming widely known as the site of vicious shark attacks. But at the same time that Mayor Vaughn Murray Hamilton is welcoming a real estate developer to Amity, two divers disappear and a party of waterskiers is consumed by a shark. The incidents are explained away as accidents, but Brody knows better, tipping his bullets with cyanide and forbidding his sons Mike Mark Gruner and Sean Marc Gilpin to participate in a teen sailing regatta. Everyone foolishly chalks up Brody's fears to trauma-induced paranoia, and the regatta goes forward, with a hungry great white trailing the youthful contestants and hungrily picking them off one by one. Director Jeannot Szwarc would later helm another sequel, Supergirl 1984.

    The best Jaws sequel!

    While Jaws III & IV completely suck, Jaws II is one of the best sequels of all time. The original focused on a menacing shark impacting the lives of three men while Jaws II had the shark's presence affecting the whole town of Amitty. The best scene in Jaws II was when the great white attacks a Coast Guard helicopter.

    Jaws 2

    Jaws 2 was a decent movie. Ok so it isn't as good as Jaws but that film marked the apex of monster movies. How could this hope to be any better?? Good action scenes and acting.

    Jaws Returns, For GOOD!

    The sequel to jaws is a fascinating one. First, it's two divers, then, a sexy water skier, then, a whole group of teenagers. Who will win, the terrifying, destructive, great white shark, or Cheif non-lying Brody and his plan to kill the shark once and for all? Come see in the blood thirsty sequel, JAWS 2.

    GOD, what a cheesy sequel!

    Good sound score, sucky action, bad anding, and jaws has a facelift relating to 2-face from batman. the end just lacks the big firecracker ending, if you want to know, the shark gets electricuted.
