Title: JAWS 2
#: 951
Format: DVD
Rating: 2.5

Chief Brody again must save Amity from a killer shark.

For three quarters of the film, it was quite a good film- considering it is a sequel and a different director (Jeannot Szwarc - director of tv shows like Boston Legal, Without a Trace). But the finale was a let down, again as a result of unrealistic character development and storylines.
However before that disappointment, there are very strong performances from Roy Scheider and Lorraine Gary in the key roles, and it is nice to see some of the cast from the first film , make an appearance as well (see Murray Hamilton as the Mayor).

It is this film that spawned the great tagline 'Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water'
