Just when you thought, etc
15 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

The definitive sequel to one of the finest thrillers ever made, this continues the story of Amity Island, which is now facing the problem of another man-eating shark. Unlike most sequels, this is just as good as the original. The characters are as strong as before. Chief Brody now comes across as a more embittered figure than previously, and you often feel a combination of shark and apathetic councillors have taken their toll on him - a sequence in which he runs across a crowded beach with a gun poised to shoot something in the water which turns out to be a school of fish is an especially powerful scene. The feel of the first Jaws is well-imitated. Yes, there are teenagers, but they are more likeable and better actors than the 'Friday the 13th' types, and very little would happen for the last half an hour without them. Highly recommended to fans of the original Jaws, but ignore the further sequels and rip-offs which follow.
