When Ellen is on the boat and sees the shark coming towards her, the distance between the boat and shark looks much greater when Michael, Jake, and Hoagie see them from inside the plane. See more »

In the original ending Jake (Mario Van Peebles) is eaten, and the shark is bloodily impaled by the front of the ship. In the alternate ending the shark is speared on the end of the boat as usual but blows up instantly. A long shot from the original Jaws movie shows the headless shark drifting towards the bottom. Cut back to the surface where the three survivors are clinging to bits of the broken ship and Jake is floating around, bleeding. This version also misses out a 30 second section of shots showing the shark perspective from behind the boat as it follows then dives, before reappearing in front of the boat. The original ending was seen in the U.S. theatrical release and and can be seen on network television airings, while the re-edited version was shown in theaters overseas, and can be seen on some cable television airings, and on home video releases.

Please...I have heard some nonsense in my time, but the defence of such a monstrous production is well...indefensible. Spouting claptrap about Shakespeare doesn't dignify what is a ridiculous and feeble offering of a motion picture.
This movie was so bad it virtually spoofed itself. Hey I know, why not on top of the shark following them all to the Bahamas doesn't it learn to walk too, and then it could follow them if they decided to move inland.
Michael Caine is a very good actor who has a habit of appearing in bad movies. In this one was impressive as he managed to keep a straight face throughout.
So bad it's beyond redemption of any kind and richly deserves it's place at #33 in the bottom rated IMDb movies. It's amazing it did that well.
I'm glad the director has taken the time to submit his review though.
