From the novel of the same name by Peter Benchley. Big mean shark terrorizes a vacation beach town during the summer tourist season.
OK, is there anyone left who hasn’t seen this one? Raise your hands…no, I thought not. I saw this the summer it was rereleased, the same summer that Alien came out…they have pretty much the same plot, and I thought this was better! Certainly scarier…
Richard Dreyfuss is at the top of his adorableness, not a honey, but cute as all getout; Robert Shaw is the only person in this movie that even attempts to create a character (he earned one face for this movie), but it’s a great ride, excellent/believeable special effects, great suspense and lots of blood and body parts.
See it again, you’ll be glad you did.
