Several years after Amity's former Police Chief Martin Brody electrocuted the shark at Cable Junction, his sons, Mike & Sean, are now working in different roles at Sea World Orlando. Mike is working as a park engineer and considering marriage to his girlfriend, killer whale biologist Kathryn Morgan. Sean is also involved with 1 of the park's water skiers, Kelly Ann Bukowski. Sea World is about to open a massive 'Undersea Kingdom' which will bring visitors closer to marine life than ever before. The park is accessible from the ocean by a series of gates, one of which malfunctions. A young Great White Shark swims through the gate, and when a maintenance diver heads down to fix the gate he does not return. The young Great White is captured & placed in a tank but soon dies despite Kathryn's best efforts to save it. More alarming though, is the young shark's massive, 35 foot mother which has followed the baby shark into the lagoon and killed the maintenance diver, whose body is recovered. ...Written by
The only "Jaws" movie not to be directly made by Universal Pictures. It was made by Alan Landsburg Productions. See more »
Mike and four other guys go out on the boat to help free the people trapped in the under water tunnel. When Mike goes under water he goes down alone, while the other four stay on the boat. After FitzRoyce is killed by the shark we see these four standing on the boat as Mike welds the tunnel below. When we see Mike under water there is now another diver down there with him working on the tunnel. When Kathy joins Mike this diver returns to the surface. Then when Calvin tells them to bring them up after the shark got free, there are still the same four on the boat and not the diver who just came up. So where did this other diver come from and where did he go? See more »
In the original 3D version, the Universal Pictures Logo is in 3D. Plus the title "Jaws 3D" comes "toward" the viewer, clamping together as if it was like a shark's mouth. See more »
Two-dimensional VHS, LaserDisc and TV versions used an alternate opening credit, entitling the movie "JAWS III" rather than "JAWS 3-D" for obvious reasons (although the animated graphic remained identical, with the words swooping out toward the camera). Later 2D disc releases, for instance the Blu-ray version, were mastered straight from a 3D print and use the original "JAWS 3-D" title. See more »
Okay so...the shark looks a wee bit fake in some scenes, but the film is overall well-made. One day if they ever do it justice and release it in it's field sequential 3-D format it would be that much better! The 3-D in this film was fantastic when this movie came out. I remember ducking a few times as a kid when I thought I was going to be harpooned. This isn't the CHEAP red/blue anaglyph 3-D. The film used the best technology available to put you right in the movie. Dennis Quaid, Louis Gossett Jr., and the other actors did a fine job. The cinematography is fantastic and shows great footage of Seaworld. 8 stars five for the film and three for the 3-D camera work. Nice one guys.
