Average made-for-TV movie is clearly trying to cash in on Spielberg's JAWS, which was released the previous year. In this film a Great White shark is taking a bite out of people in a coastal town so a couple men rent a boat and go out to kill it for the $20,000 bounty. The quality of this film is pretty much what you would expect from a made-for-TV movie from the 1970's. While it was clearly influenced by JAWS it isn't that bad of a rip off and overall it fits nicely into the decades "man vs. nature" movies. The ending has our two heroes fall into the water and their boat being destroyed. As soon as this happened I couldn't help but think of OPEN WATER so one does get curious to know if the makers of that film had seen this one as children. The movie features a lot of stock footage of the shark, which is good and bad. It's good because the footage is actually great looking with wonderful close ups of the shark. It's bad because it just doesn't mix in too well with the rest of the film and especially during the attacks, which you aren't ever able to see. The ending of the film was pretty much a letdown and I'm still suffering from a "WTF" moment as it still hasn't really made much sense to me. The performances are decent, the direction average and the story is about as simple as you can get and that pretty much sums up the entire film. If you're a fan of this type of film then check it out but others beware.
