Four years after the events of the original "Jaws", the town of Amity suddenly experiences series of mysterious boating accidents and disappearances. Chief of Police, Martin Brody, fears that another shark is out there, but he is ignored by the townsfolk. Unfortunately, he's right. There is another Great White in the sea. And it wants revenge.

'Carl Gottlieb' said he got the idea of teenagers hanging out on sailboats from the 'cruising' car culture that was popular at the time. See more »
In one of the sequences where the shark attacks the kids, underwater shots of the shark (meant to be a great white) are actually stock footage of a black tip shark. This is obvious, as you could imagine, from the black tip markings on the visible dorsal and pectoral fins. It is a smaller and less aggressive shark than the great white. See more »
Steven Spielberg's Jaws is a classic piece of cinema. However, this sequel which was released three years later, is a very worthy follow up. It is just as suspenseful a movie, and should be applauded for NOT just copying the first one - I actually find it quite distressing, particularly in the scene where the kindly Marge is rescuing little Sean Brody. Roy Scheider, Lorraine Gary and Murray Hamilton all reprise their original roles will ease, and there is a terrific performance from Ann Dusenberry as Tina Wilcox (how on earth did Ms. Dusenberry NOT become a major star?!). Well worth seeing, but be warned - keep your fingers in your ears whenever Jackie (Donna Wilkes) appears onscreen!
