AWESOME
21 October 2000 | by (Delphos, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I am a huge Jaws fan and this is the best documentary. The only thing that is wrong with this is that there is no Robert Shaw interview, there also isn't a Murray Hamilton interview either. But in all this is a great documentary. If you are a Jaws fan at all then you must check this out.
