After the encounter with the shark at Sea World, the Brody family yet again has to face the shark.


As if Jaws 3-D wasn't bad enough, someone at the Universal Studios thought it would make sense to make another film starring the killing shark. And it does, but only from a money-making point of view because Jaws: The Revenge sucks on every level and manages to be even and a lot worse than its predecessor.

It has one of the most ridiculous plots of all time, a shark taking revenge on a family, that couldn't care less about what was said in one of the previous films that being sharks do not take things personally. I guess the writers not only know nothing about sharks, but they haven't seen the other movies of the series either.

The shark hunting down the Brody family (which by the way wouldn't have happened if they used their grey cells and did not go on vacation to the Bahamas) isn't even the most non-sense thing going on if you consider that the focus of the movie shifts on Mrs Brody for no reason whatsoever and it's she that attempts at killing the shark.

However, that plot, the flat characters, the terrible performances from the cast and the dreadful dialogue are far from being the tip of the iceberg. That's easily on the dull special effects, the lack of suspense and tension. And the lack of scares. Lorraine Gary's hair is probably the most frightening thing in the movie.


  1. You poor thing...hahahaaaa. I saw this too. Michael Caine is right, he has made a lot of crap during his life time.

  2. Just had to be a completist, didn't ya?

  3. LOL this movie is so bad. I hope you had a drink or two while watching it.

    1. Watership Down's even worse.

    2. I didn't, but only because I don't drink a lot of alcohol in general. It would have helped though.
