LOVEFiLM By Post

The star-studded opening of a new underwater theme park is disrupted when a baby shark strays into the complex and dies. Its 35-foot mother seeks revenge for the death of her offspring, laying waste to the marine world and its inhabitants in the process. This third instalment of the 'Jaws' franchise was originally released in 3-D.

I actually find this film entertaining as a b-movie schlock horror, rather than a tense thriller that was the original. Just to remind people about the effects: yes they are shoddy, but then again the shark in the original is unconvincing too (when it appears). This film was shown at cinemas as 'Jaws 3D' and was supposed to be viewed with those red/green spectacles, hence the rather perplexing scenes such as the fish head or when jaws smashes into the control centre.
If you view it as a horror fan, there are some great death scenes; the shark is really quite ominous due to its ridiculous proportions and there is great shock value at some of the grisly deaths meted out to unwary divers. Best/worst death is Simon MacKorkindale's (Holby city/casualty) character's ( you just know that the English guy is going to die in the most horrible way!) : he is attempting to lure jaws into a vent to trap her (she's a mother, after all) but his life-line snaps and he gets trapped in the vent with her...he then somehow ends up (still alive) inside her over-sized mouth. You then hear his bones cracking!! Truly disturbing, even if it's totally absurd as well!
Don't know if I'd buy it, perhaps best to watch it on channel 5 ha ha!

i have never laughed so much at an ending of a film. The bit where the shark is coming towards them in the control centre is cringe makingly poor. The rest of the film was not too bad, though an even more unrealistic scenario. What was that under water tunnel made out of? Acrylic it would seem. Terrible 'special effects' at their best.

that was the tagline that accompanied "jaws 3D" in the cinemas during the 80's, but unfortunatly the vhs and dvd releases do not have the 3D effects, and sadly the transfer of these effects to dvd format are so obviously computer generated, the worst being when the shark explodes and the broken jaws fly up on-screen. and the shark is rather fake looking. nothing compared to the fabulous model in the first movie. BUT these complaints aside, the film itself is not too bad at all. definatly a good picture for a rainy day, and the attacks are still quite gruesome as true jaws fans will be pleased to hear. the movie cannot compare to the original, or really the surprisingly good "Jaws 2" either, but as a film in its own right it could hold its own against some of the trash that invades our cinemas these days. the dvd is not great for extras, boasting no more than a theatrical trailer, but i always find those quite entertaining to watch- especially if its an old movie. the third dimension may well have been terror, but as far as dvd's go, the second isnt too bad either.

All i have to say about this is watch the part when the 3d shark or whatever it is supposed to be is coming towards the underwater glass and there just looking at it waiting for it to come..and then it smashes the glass or its supposed to look like it did anyway hahahahaha (><) one of the funniest things i have ever witnessed,or maybe they are even wondering what the hell it is supposed to be to,this film is so funny to watch because it is so crap and has aged VEEEERY BAAAAADLY,they should of just left it alone when the GENIUS Spielberg made Jaws 1,its funny how the shark got more and more crap with each film,wasn't it supposed to be the other way around?. the shark still looks best in number one obviously anyone that has seen a real AWSOME great white obviously knows it still looks fake but it was a good fake that you could pretend it was some kind of prehistoric mutant freak shark,but you just cant pretend with a dodgy podgy rubber sharkey.or a still moving cgi or whatever technique they tried to use for this sorry excuse for a film,YOU STILL DA MAN SPEILBURG.. dont waste your money on this unless you want it for laughing purposes,get number one.. it still is a classic after all these years,dont bother with the rest as they are all garbage and dont get me started on Jaws 4 with pilot grandad Michael Caine trying to pop the chiefs wife..and a whole lot of other bad stuff in that fiasco..

Farewell and adieu to you fair, Spanish ladies,
Farewell and adieu to you, ladies of Spain;
For we've received orders to sail to old England,
But we hope in a short time to see you again ;)

i really liked this movie, jaws 1 is my favourite, this comes second. ok, most of the effects are bad, but they did film it in 3d all those years ago which was a good idea at the time but doesn't really work now, but they're forgiven for that. i actually like the plot for the film, it's fresh and takes the story away from amity. roy sheider is missed in this film but his son's are there to save the day instead. the thing i love about this movie is that the suspence is back, and they use a lot of footage of a real great white as the baby shark and it's fantastic, ok the mother looks a bit fake, but not as bad as the awful jaws 4, and the ending's very fake indeed, but that was made for the 3d reliese. overall not the best movie in the world, but as jaws films go it's got everything you would want, suspence lot's of blood and gore and a few jumpy moments, but it's the scene of the real great white chasing mike brody and his girlfriend kate that makes it what it is for me.
