Product Description

Product Description

Four years on from the horrible shark attacks which plagued Amity Island, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) is still uneasy about the prospect of another shark visiting the bay. So when the film developed from the camera of a missing diver shows what looks like a shark fin, he begins to get very worried indeed. However, Mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) again plays down the incident, and when Brody raises a panicked false alarm from his observation tower on the beach, the mayor even goes as far as firing him. It is then that the bloodbath really begins.

From Amazon.co.uk

Judged entirely on its own merits, Jaws 2 isn't a bad film. It even has some passably scary moments (Brody discovering a charred body in the waves; the swimming boy racing the shark back to his dinghy). But it's absolutely impossible to judge this movie on its own merits. Despite being given a great big Panavision camera to play with director Jeannot Szwarc can't hide his TV-movie origins, nor can the script, both of which spend far too long landlocked with the bickering inhabitants of Amity Island. Where the original film boldly set out to sea with Robert Shaw's Ahab-like Quint, in a misplaced desire to attract a teenage audience this movie dwells at interminable length on the courting rituals of the local youth; where Spielberg's original is a masterpiece of pacing and carefully timed tension-building, Jaws 2 sags terribly whenever the plastic shark swims out of sight. Roy Scheider comes off best, reprising his role as Chief Brody, while Lorraine Gary's role as his wife is expanded (she must be a glutton for punishment: she also starred in Jaws 4: The Revenge). Taken as a sequel Jaws 2 is inferior in every way; taken as an unassuming TV movie it's a respectable, workmanlike effort; but looking forward at what was to follow, it begins to look like a minor masterpiece. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

At long last, then, Jaws 2 gets a Blu Ray release. I’ve always had a soft spot for this film: partly because I think it’s great, but also because it had the unenviable task of following the first, iconic, utterly wonderful first film. How do you follow that…?? Apparently it was one of the very first sequels made – in those days, such things were rare – and paved the way for the mega-franchises we see (or endure) to this day.

Without spoiling it, the plot basically involves another shark wreaking havoc on some of the inhabitants of Amity Island. However, this film is perhaps slightly more expansive (geographically speaking), eventually following a group of kids sailing out to sea, where our fishy friend can do his/her worst. Some themes from the first film are still in evidence, e.g. tourist dollars versus public safety, business versus authority, family tensions, personal demons and, of course, the notion of “be careful out there”….

The Blu-Ray quality is terrific, considering this is nearly 40 years old. The film is strong on action shots, the director really made these work; they are pretty spectacular (e.g. following the fish from above/POV, the water-skiing, helicopter etc.), and Blu Ray enhances them considerably. I also think there are a couple of genuinely terrifying, proper “horror” moments – possibly even better than any such scenes in the first film (or at least on a par with Quint’s bloody departure). The special effects, and the ways in which they were created, still impress, again when you consider the film is from 1978.

The acting is, once again, first-rate.

In the wake of Steven Spielberg's original game-changer there came many, many imitators, most of which were so lazy that they were just named after whatever leviathan might be eating people on that occasion (Orca, Piranha, Great White, Alligator) and they were all absolute garbage (although Orca does have some decent melancholic pathos). Jaws 2 seems to have been degraded by the flurry of imitators, but that doesn't mean it's a bad film. It's actually quite good.

Three years after Martin Brody destroyed the original shark another (with a rather cool Phantom of the Opera burn across its 'face') has come to Amity Island and is gobbling-up the locals. No one wants to listen to Brody's suspicions, leaving him to deal with it all on his own. His two sons, meanwhile, go out sailing with a bunch of friends and are terrorized by the shark when it paralyzes their flotilla.

Many critics have compared Jaws to a teenage slasher movie, which I think is unfair. That particular sub-genre didn't really take-off until the release of Halloween, which came out 4 months later. Plus the teenagers in this movie are actually likable and have decent characterization. Even the stuck-up Mayor's son is good character. In a modern movie he'd die horribly as creating unlikable fodder is a common way for lazy writers to encourage blood-lust in the audience.

A fairly decent film with some genuinely gripping action sequences. Had this not been a sequel then I feel it would have been much better received, but the crew were always going to suffer by being compared to the original. Some excellent suspense builders, notably the teenagers hanging out in the harbour and the desperate swim by Eddie for the safety of his dingy. As in the original,the soundtrack adds to the suspense. A worthy follow up.

It's about as good a sequel as they get. Plotline doesn't stray from its iconic forerunner...and why should it. Script is a bit clunky and Brodie needs another Shaw/Dreyfuss foil to banter with. I feel Lorraine Gary (very under-rated actress) should have had a more direct 'shark in yer face' role as she and Schneider work well together.

Not even close to the original, which is rightly hailed as a classic of cinema. Jaws 2 however, is the best sequel out of the 3 films that followed the original. Roy Scheider (and family) are again on screen, which gives the story some kind of continuation. An entertaining couple of hours.

The four stars are for A at last on BLU RAY outing on this movie, but i have to say i am sad to say that the sound track is not the full 7.1 DTS surround that the first jaws movie got for its BLU RAY outing not even a 5.1 track, no just a rubbish 2.1 DTS on this one and that's a great loss and a shame as the john williams music in this one is outstanding, the picture is 2.35.1 full wide screen and there is a little film grain unlike the first jaws BLU RAY but over all not to bad its a lot sharper and brighter than the old DVD, as for extras well nothing new there just the same as the jaws 2 DVD which is a crying shame, so 4 stars for the picture and just the 2 for the sound mix.
