The Great White goes back into the cinema in this flawed sequel
3 January 2010 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This bone-chilling movie based on the Peter Benchley's novel packs eerie scenes, suspense and embarrassing direction.The film is developed at the Bahamas in a shore community .There ,people is terrorized by a giant shark that attacks pacific tourists at the local beach. The widow (Larraine Gary)of Police chief Brody(Roy Scheider, Jaws I,II) tries convince to his son(Lance Guest married to Karen Young) who reluctant listen her to leave the seaside . The mother becomes obsessed by what appears to be a personal revenge against the family . Meanwhile the large shark attacks and the victims run afoul and making a real carnage and those serving for lunch. Then, the marine scientific( Lance Guest and Mario Van Peebles) determine to track down and kill it. The protagonists are forced to fight for their lives in a mortal confrontation.

It's an inferior following with average creation of tension,thrills,terror, emotions and brief gore.The shark attack images deliver the exciting united to creepy score by Michael Small inspired on the classic soundtrack by the master John Williams(prized with an Oscar)who heightens the suspense. This below average movie features lousy interpretations of the quartet protagonist, Larraine Gary,Lance Guest, Michael Caine and Mario Van Peebles . Acceptable cinematography by John McPherson and is absurdly directed by Joseph Sargent. While the original picture by Spielberg obtained three Oscars well deserved and today considered an authentic classic, its tree sequels are much worst, and were respectively directed by Jeannot Swarc,Joe Alves and Joseph Sargent in annoying direction. Rating: Bottom of barrel, a real turkey.
