Reviews for Jaws 2

Author: quasar1967

just as good as the original, if not better

Author: JPV852

Adequate but still entertaining sequel has some okay practical effects with the shark though still really silly given what happened in the last one nobody in charge would listen to Brody. Nothing overly special and doubt I'd revisit this anytime soon, but an okay sequel. **3.25/5**

Author: Ian Beale

**Excellent sequel!** Intense sequel directed by Jeannot Szwarc (who also directed episodes of Columbo alongside Steven Spielberg!) Performances here are every bit as good as the original and Szwarc manages to infuse of great sense of style to the proceedings - building upon and adding even more depth to the Brody story. The camerawork is extremely stylish - some great gliding point of view shots. John Williams outdoes his work in the original movie with his Jaws 2 score. The film feels more brutal than the original and leads to a nerve shredding climax. A great counterpart to Jaws (1975). - **Ian Beale**
