Quotes

Narrator: [Only on older TV versions] Since time immemorial, events have taken place with no evident reason for their happening. Such phenomena has been man's dilemma and the subject of constant philosophical discussion. When there is no factor motivating an event, no case of cause creating effect, what triggered the action: fate or circumstance? What you are about to see concerns such an event. Maybe you can determine whether we are dealing here, with circumstances, or fate.

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema was cut by 37 seconds to get a "PG" rating with heavy edits made to Sean's death and shots of bloody bodies in the shark's mouth during attacks. The cuts were restored in the video version and the certificate upgraded to a '15' (later '12' for the DVD release). See more »

Jaw dropping
29 June 2004 | by darthquincunxSee all my reviews

There is Montezuma's revenge and then there is Jaws: The Revenge, in either case diarrhea is produced. This is really a terrible film, as if a shark would go out and take revenge on the family that "murdered" his cousins. Nonsense! It is awful to see Michael Caine in this film, I don't know why Michael appears in films like this, he must only do it for the money because the artistic merits of this film are zilch. Poor Lorraine Gary, went into retirement and then only to come out of retirement to do this turkey, and to think she felt obliged to as well, hardly a fitting finale to the end of a career. This film should have won more Razzies than it did but then against it was up against Leonard part 6!
