Three years after those infamous shark attacks, another great white swims into police chief Roy Scheider's resort town in this shameless sequel that's a pale imitation of the classic original. Director Jeannot Szwarc tries to ape Steven Spielberg's imaginative style, but the suspense comes unglued because the film floats in all-too-familiar waters. You just know how everyone is going to react - from the stars to the director, and even the mechanical shark. Stalwart Scheider is in full control of this blasé follow-up that makes one wonder why mayor Murray Hamilton hasn't learnt any lessons from previous events.
The seaside resort of Amity is terrorised once again by a man-eating great white shark. While police chief Brody struggles to alert the townsfolk to the magnitude of the danger, a group of teenagers - including Brody's two sons - is adrift at sea in waters hunted by the shark. Thriller sequel, starring Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary and Murray Hamilton.
