The problem with the Jaws series is that there's not a lot you can do with a shark other than having it hang around a beach and attack people from time to time.

Jaws 2 is a decent effort as far as sequels go. It's a bit of a rehash, but has some nice set pieces and by focussng on Brody's paranoia adds something to the characterisation as well.

Jaws 3 is my least favourite. It has little connection to the other films, and was a poor attempt to breathe some life into series that had run its course (it was released in 3D if I remember rightly).

Jaws - The Revenge is simply one of the worst films ever made. And I meant that in a good way! It's got Michael Caine at his worst, and the suggestion that sharks somehow have a personal vendatta against the Brody family. It's as trashy as hell, but well worth a chuckle.

I bought this at the same time as the special edition of Jaws having never seen any of the four films before. You know pretty much what to expect, a big shark's on the loose, kills lots of people before being killed itself. The films can seem a little samey, but are all still good in their own right.
For this price it'd be rude not to get this pack!

A short summation. Jaws 2 was a respectable sequel, let down only by Scheider's lacklustre performance (he reportedly didnt want to do the film, but was contractually obliged to) and by the incessant girly screaming in the catamaran sequences in the 2nd half ("aaaaaaah...a shark....get the boys to deal with it..." etc.) Certainly not the Moby Dick-esque tour-de-force of the "3-Men-In-A-Boat against the marine behemoth" first film (still one of the best films ever made), but more of a teen-slasher Halloween cheap thrills affair for winter popcorn nights in.

The 3rd film was just plain boring. At least they attempted to intercut real footage of sharks for some of the sequences, which added to the reality, although the rubber close-ups are actually worse than in Jaws 1 & 2 (you think they'd try and work out how to do it better...) A dreary, forgettable plot, with ham acting and stunted dialogue. If you make it to the finale you will undoubtedly be disappointed. Guess what happens...

Jaws 4 - the Revenge. Surely one of THE worst films EVER made. An atrocious storyline ("this time its personal"...??? I mean...since when did sharks care about each other, never mind develop the capacity to specifically target land-based members of the family responsible for killing the first two sharks in Amity?) Any semblance of respect I had for Lorraine "Ellen" Grey (or Michael Caine for that matter) was removed with this ridiculous exploitation of the classic first film. Dire script, dire effects, and yet the ending is still one of the most hilarious moments in cinema.

I'm not surprised that Universal didnt want its proudest moment in film (Jaws) tainted by association with these 3 films, and released them seperately.

A pretty good film, that although dated inmany ways (mainly the rubber shark!) still contains enough jumpy moments to make it all worthwhile.
More of the same, but that is good enough!

Jaws 2 is great jaws 3 what the hell? Jaws 4 is okay. Jaws 2 is great but some smaller kids might get scared by the blood should be rated a 12. Jaws 3 is well-I can't really say how, erm, er how bad it is. Good plot but bad effects-I can't say special effects because they've still got the rubber shark in it. I mean you could expect better from the 1980s. And they couldn't get Roy scheider-I don't know how to spell his sir name-to act in this film either. Jaws 4 bad plot good acting and okay film. They've still got the rubber shark though.

AMAZING. ..DOESN'T GET MUSH BETTER THAN JAWS...we're total shark mad in our house so these movies are a favourite although the first movie is the best...but this follow up box set is a must have for die hard shark fans...With the amazing chief brody what more could you want..The second film is very quickly introducing the shark and there are very few long periods without the shark

If you have the first, you really ought to have the sequels. They are clearly nowhere as good the original Jaws but well worth buying to complete the set.
Love the Jaws franchise
