Jaws 2 (1978)

jaws2_8

Three years after those infamous shark attacks, another great white swims into police chief Martin Brody’s Amity 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 Roy Scheider is in full control of this blasé follow-up that makes one wonder why Mayor Vaughan (Murray Hamilton) hasn’t learnt any lessons from previous events.
