  • 6/10
  • Two divers are attacked and killed by the shark but very little is actually shown.
  • The shark kills a water-skier. She is shown thrashing around under water with blood. The shark then attacks a woman on a boat. She accidentally pours petrol everywhere and is blown up. She is killed and the shark has scars and burns on its face. The burnt corpse of the woman is shown later on in the film.

  • A diver is scared by the shark and rushes to the surface to fast and suffers an embolism. Blood is shown coming out of his mouth and nose.

  • In some regards this is more violent then the First Jaws. While not as thrilling or suspenseful, it feels more like a horror.

Profanity

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 2/10
  • Three characters share a bottle of whiskey, one of them having previously become drunk.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 7/10
  • This is a pretty intense film. Every death is suspensful and shocking. As with the first film, it is infamous for making people scared of sharks and going into the water.The music is ominous and intense.
  • Recommended Rating: PG for scary sequences of shark attacks and peril, disturbing images, thematic elements, crude and suggestive content, some smoking and drinking, language and some sensuality - all involving teens
