From Amazon.co.uk

Many of the stories of the making of Jaws have been told over the years, but rarely have they been pulled together as exquisitely as they are in this terrific Blu-ray release. The centrepiece is a wonderful two-hour, exhaustive look at the process of bringing Jaws together, with contributions from all the film's major players. On top of that, there's another substantive documentary that looks back at the impact of the film, and while it covers parts of the same ground, it's still very much worth watching. More archive releases should be treated to such in-depth, fascinating analysis.

There are further supplements on top, with a wealth of storyboards and production photography being of particular interest. That said, the outtakes and deleted scenes are hardly shabby, either, and there's a real treat from the archives, too, with a short making-of made at the time of the film's shoot. It's a wonderfully comprehensive package that you get here, offering breadth and depth to the extra features.

All that is, of course, before you get to the film proper. Jaws needs little introduction, but Steven Spielberg's classic has never looked better than it does here. Diligently cleaned up for its 1080p transfer, the film looks and sounds tremendous. And while the shark may look a little faker as a consequence of that, it's nonetheless a premium class Blu-ray of a premium class film. --Jon Foster

I've broken a golden rule with myself as I vowed never to buy a Blu-ray at its full price if I'd already owned the film on a multitude of different formats (VHS , Laserdisc , DVD) , but some films are just worth paying that extra for and I honestly couldn't wait for the price to drop as this is one of my all time favourite films.
Its going to be hard not to quote lines from the film or make any corny puns writing this review , so will do my best not too.

After the disappointing picture quality of Spielberg's Jurassic Park box set on Blu-ray , I was more than a little wary of this transfer , but I'm pleased to say that all is excellent with Jaws.
The 7.1 remastering is just incredible through my AV receiver! It was like being sat in the middle of a 94 piece orchestra and has now topped the best sound on any of my Blu-rays.
The scene where the shark attacks the guy in the estuary is a good example of a subtle change in sound. There's a nice deep bass thud through the subwoofer when he is pulled underwater from his upturned boat , and although its a tiny tweak to the sound , it really makes all the difference and now that scene appears more violent than it already was.
The night time attack on the Orca has a similar effect of making a scene more potent , with more bass thudding punch to the sound coming from every direction around your front room when the shark repeatedly hits the boat , and by NO means is the new sound overpowering to these scenes , its just the right touch.

The picture restoration is just fantastic , although I nearly spat my drink out at one point ! Not through being made to jump at a scene but at one stage , I thought Mr Lucas had broken into the editing lounge with his trusty laptop and tweaked about with Spielberg's masterpiece...

Format: Blu-ray
Amity Island, a small community whose main business is its beaches.

When Sheriff Martin Brody discovers the remains of a shark attack victim, his first inclination is to close the beaches to swimmers.

This doesn't sit well with the Mayor and several of the local businessmen. Brody backs down to his regret as that weekend a young boy is killed by the predator.

The boy's mother puts out a bounty on the shark and Amity is soon swamped with amateur hunters and fisherman hoping to cash in on the reward.

A local fisherman with much experience hunting sharks, Quint, offers to hunt down the creature for a hefty fee. Soon Quint, Brody and Matt Hooper from the Oceanographic Institute are at sea hunting the Great White shark....

This is the film we have to thank for blockbusters like ID4, Jurassic Park, and Robin Hood: POT. It's also responsible in some way for Batman and Robin, Battlefield Earth.

It's basically the movie that started the summer blockbuster, and it's so easy to see why. Spielberg has crafted easily his most entertaining movie, with real shocks, laughs and some of the most emotional scenes in a big movie like this.

From the USS Indianapolis speech, to the opening scene, to the scene with Brody and his son, to the brilliant use of the camera in that scene, to the immortal lines 'gonna need a bigger boat' and 'smile you sonofa .....' there is something here that everyone loves.

And seeing it on Blu Ray just shows how terrifying the film really is compared to DVD.

In some instances the film can be seen as an insight into consumerism, and the fact that traditional celebrations are vanishing.

Blu Ray Info.
Running time 120 minutes approx, Region B, Extras:The shark is still working a exclusive Blu ray documentary, Making of Jaws a two hour Documentary featuring director Steven Spielberg & member's of the cast & crew, Deleted scenes, Trailer & more...

Trivia.
1)"Your going to need a bigger boat" wasn't scripted by Carl Gottlieb but improvised by actor Roy Scheider.
2)Robert Shaw couldn't stand Richard Dreyfuss & the pair didn't get on throughout production which creating great tenison between there character's Quint & Hooper.
3)Steven Speilberg named the shark "Bruce" after his lawyer.
4)Lee Marvin was Spielberg's first choice for Quint but Marvin told Speilberg he'd rather go fishing & declined.
5)Charlton Heston was fuming he was turned down for the role of Quint & made disparaging remarks against Spielberg vowing never to work with him.
6)A sequence shot but never made the final cut as director Steven Speilberg deemed it far to gruesome the sequence would've shown a second attack by the shark as it comes for Brodys son Michael who is swimming in the "shallow area" seeing the shark Michael is frozen with terror as the shark approaches him, the man who originally gets eaten notices the shark & races to push the Michael out the sharks way just in time & then the scene would've cut to the man being bitten by the shark showing his bloody upper body being bitten in the sharks mouth before being pulled underwater, This sequence can be seen in the making of Jaws documentary but isn't included in any of the deleted scenes.
7)Author Peter Benchley was thrown off set due to objecting to the movie's climax.
8)Production overan vy 6 month's due to many technical problems with the mechanical shark.
