Doesn't have Spielberg's storytelling elegance or sense of pacing, but by pretty much any measure Jaws 2 is a solid adventure yarn Full Review
From the Front Row
Suspension of disbelief might have been possible had this been a ripping good yarn; but the kids are just plain silly, and it's a toss-up to decide which is more unconvincing, the shark or Scheider. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- It never comes close to the classic status of its predecessor, but for drive-in horror thrills, this still has sufficient bite. Full Review
The surprise in Jaws 2 is that, given the givens, it came out as well as it did. For me, in terms of sheer visceral zapping, it's better than the first time around (or under). Full Review
The New Republic
Rating: 3/4 -- There was reason to believe that "Jaws 2" would be a mess. It isn't. It's better than most sequels. It's formula-ridden but slick, and the special effects work as intended. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Unnecessary sequel has less plot, more peril and violence. Full Review
Common Sense Media
I am also a fan of slasher movies, so I like that the film almost seems like a Jaws-ified response to the slasher boom, as the film's second half revolves around a group of trapped teens being menaced by the shark. Full Review
Amity police chief Brody discovers that there's more than one fish in the sea--the great white shark he destroyed in the first film has a hungry mate ready to wreak havoc on the community. This action-packed sequel features the welcome return of Roy Scheider and Lorraine Gary reprising their roles from the original blockbuster that did for ocean beaches what PSYCHO did for showers.
In this sequel to the 1975 blockbuster, police chief Martin Brody is once again concerned with a series of shark attacks. After four years of relative calm in the resort town of Amity, a great white shark is terrorizing teenagers, including his own son.
- Budget estimate: $20 million.
- Released in USA June 1978.
- Shot on location in Okaloosa County, Florida, in Technicolor.
- It was reported in Variety in June 1978 that this sequel was $10 million over budget due to production delays and dollar inflation. Director Jeannot Szwarc replaced John Hancock, who was originally set to do the film.
