Description

A new police chief teams with a cocky young icthyologist and a sea-worn shark fisherman to hunt and destroy a monstrous 25-foot great white shark that is terrorizing the beaches of Amity Island. Director Steven Spielberg brings Peter Benchley's best-selling novel to the screen with stunning power and unbearable suspense. One of the greatest box-office attractions in motion picture history, "Jaws" left an indelible mark upon the movie-going (and beach-going!) public, distilling a sea of fear from these five words: "Don't go in the water."

  • The Making of Jaws

    Review

    "In the vastly overrated 1998 book Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, author Peter Biskind puts the blame for Hollywood's blockbuster mentality at least partially on Steven Spielberg's box-office success with this adaptation of Peter Benchley's bestselling novel. But you can't blame Spielberg for making a terrific movie, which Jaws definitely is. The story of a Long Island town whose summer tourist business is suddenly threatened by great-white-shark attacks on humans bypasses the potboiler trappings of Benchley's book and goes straight for the jugular with beautifully crafted, crowd-pleasing sequences of action and suspense supported by a trio of terrific performances by Roy Scheider (as the local sheriff), Richard Dreyfuss (as a shark specialist), and particularly Robert Shaw (as the old fisherman who offers to hunt the shark down). The sequences on Shaw's boat--as the three of them realize that in fact the shark is hunting them--are what entertaining moviemaking is all about." --Marshall Fine
