Jaws In Japan has more jaws flapping then bite
3 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jaws In Japan is all flawed. Everything. To think that we went from the original 1975 money making summer this. I mean, even Jaws 2 was an inferior sequel, but they kept on cranking them out, to the point, that they weren't even numerical sequels anymore. Jaws 3 wasn't really Jaws 3, it was Jaws 3D, because everyone knows the coolest thing back in 1983 was seeing a shark in 3 dimensions, am I wrong? Jaws 4 wasn't really Jaws 4, that was Jaws The Revenge. Did Jaws really get revenge? Oh, forget about that, you want the real truth about that movie, take a look at the reviews, it's all true: fake looking shark, lame script, stupid kills. Then, just this week, I found out that there was a Jaws 5! Jaws In Japan? No, it was called Cruel Jaws. Released in 1995. TV movie, so how violent can it be? How good can it be! Now, they made Jaws In Japan in 2009...needless to say, these movies just get worse and worse respectively in the years. Jaws In Japan, however, doesn't just hit the bottom of the barrel, it digs beneath the barrel, straight into ground, dragging whatever soul remains of the franchise with it. I mean, to think, the taglines read "The girls are in danger!" Really? They're in danger? Well, it's awfully funny, that girls are in danger, and they're laughing, smiling, swimming. You don't even hear the Jaws theme of the shark creeping up on them. Wonderful shite, Japan movie makers! Incredible danger lurks in the oddest spots in this movie, away from the water. So many shots of the TV set, I thought I was watching Poltergeist. So many shots of the shower, I thought it was Psycho. Oh, speaking of psycho, this one is aka Psycho Shark. Really? Psycho Shark? The movie is only 1 hour and 9 minutes long, and you see no shark the first 1 hour. Okay, Jaws , you've got 9 minutes left to make your claim. Needless to say, the body count is very low, along with the morale and quality of this film, which most appears to be shot on a camcorder...if they even still make those. Girls shower in bikinis? It's as if the set was so cheap, that they couldn't pay them to take it off. Along with that, we have excessive talking....and talking...and more talking. Jaws In Japan had more jaws flapping then, then shark shots. Shark shots, that's a good one, no shots are fired at the shark. The final scene in the movie will guarantee an empty box of popcorn flung at the TV screen. Verdict is in: The movie sucks. Any more Jaws movies made, I will dismiss them...because you're not going to ever prove to me that they're getting better with age.
