Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
After the encounter with the shark at Sea World, Sean Brody has returned to Amity. Here he has assumed his father's role, working for the police department, and is engaged to a young woman named Tiffany. His mother, Ellen, still lives in Amity as well. Mike Brody is now married to Carla and is researching conch snails with his partner, Jake, in the Bahamas. One night, while repairing a buoy in Amity harbor from the police boat, Sean is ambushed from below and killed by the Brodys' old enemy, a Great White shark. After the funeral, Ellen wants Mike to stay off the water, but he refuses, and takes Ellen back to the Caribbean with him and his wife and daughter, Thea. Ellen starts trying to enjoy life again, meeting charming pilot Hoagie after having been a widow for some time. Mike and Jake encounter the Great White shark in the water, and tag and track it for research. But the shark soon starts wreaking havoc, and comes after Thea on a banana boat ride. Now, Ellen, Mike, Jake, and ...Written by
The scene with Mike Brody and his daughter Thea, sitting at the table imitating him, mirrors the scene in Jaws (1975), where Sean imitated his father Martin, while sitting at the dinner table. See more »
Two controlling rods visibly extend from the shark as it hauls Jake down into the water; one comes out by Jake's leg, another is on the shark's stomach. See more »

The AMC, BBC, and Theatrical Releases all consist of an ending in which after Ellen rams the Neptune's Folly into the shark. The shark begins to bleed heavily and eventually sinks into the ocean. In the AMC version, this ending is extended with extra footage of Ellen forcing the boat into the shark, which is just reused footage seen earlier in the film. The AMC version also contains over 4 scenes not seen in any other version, including a scene with Michael and Jake singing on a porch, Ellen and Hoagie talking around cruise ships, Hoagie Gambling in the Casino, an Extended Scene of Ellen and her family driving the a taxi. The BBC Version is basically the DVD R1 Version, but the film is unmatted and includes the ending of the shark sinking down after being rammed at the end. The extended shots of the ending seen in the AMC Version are not in this version. The Encore and DVD Versions (Universal and Goodtimes DVDs) consist of an ending where the shark explodes on impact and reuses footage from JAWS 1. Jake is seen living at the end. (Jake did not live in the BBC, AMC, and Theatrical Version) The BBC Airing is most accurate copy to the Theatrical Version. The only difference between the BBC and Theatrical is the BBC is sped up and in the end, results to appear only 1 hour and 22 min. If the BBC was not sped up, it would be exactly the same as the Theatrical Version. See more »
The movie is one of the worst I've ever seen. The attack scenes are worse than what I used to do with Fisher Price Town and a stuffed seal from Marineland. The shark follows them to the Bahamas; apparently for revenge...revenge for being killed in earlier movies! Or is the shark exacting revenge for his friends who were killed? Or maybe (and here's something they could have pursued) it was the WIFE of the previous shark who decided the wife of her husband's killer should suffer. Well she did suffer, by appearing in this movie. For Jaws 5 I suggest the surviving family members of Mrs. Brodie swim back to New York and start biting sharks.
