Two teens end up skinny
dipping on an island at the beach late in
the evening and are both killed by a
The next day the head Police Chief named
Martin Brody (Roy Schieder) tries to
investigate the two teens that were
killed but can't identify what killed
Brody and his people stay on the lookout
and a boy is killed by the shark that
same day they were investigating.
Brody closes the beach and hires a shark
researcher named Matt Hooper (Richard
Dreyfuss) to find out about the murders
in the ocean.
Some locals killed a tiger shark as
everyone thinks that they killed the
shark that was responsible for killing
Hooper tells Brody that they might've not
killed the right one and there could
still be a shark out there as they try to
search the ocean for any clues and finds
a wrecked up boat with a corpse on it.
Then it's the 4th of July and the beach
is open to the public as they go sailing
and swimming. Suddenly one person
discovers a great white and gets killed
by this horrid shark.
So Brody, Hooper and and another
researcher named Quint (Robert Shaw) take
their boat in the middle of the ocean to
try and trap and kill this killer shark
but little do they know how powerful it
We have a perfect beginning with two partying people at a bonfire and deciding to strip down and run to the ocean as well as the girl swimming deep into the ocean as there's a nice distance shot with the sparkling water along with the memorable camera shot on her swimming and then zooming towards her. This was a classic moment as well as her being dragged under water which was a perfect start for a shark tale horror movie.
Perfect situations with Martin Brody trying to solve the case on the missing girl as well as spotting her hand in the sand which is another perfect pointer for a horror story as well as him trying to talk to the city about closing the beach with the head mayor Larry Vaughn being closed minded about it all. This seemed to work in well with pigheaded people running the city since we all know those kinds running things.
Also a good moment on Martin keeping an eye on things at the beach and being distracted which has a total realistic feel of frusteration as you get the feeling that something is going to happen at that very moment. Plus we spot people going in the beach as well as someone's dog getting a stick in the water which were nice drawing cards to the story making you watch carefully as well as the owner looking for his dog and can't find his pet but just the stick which is a perfect clue as to what happened which also works in well. We also see a child telling his Mom that he's going back in the water and getting his blow up raft which stands out perfectly well and a perfect target that he will be the next victim by how it was all put together.
Nice shots on the camera going through the water with swimmers as well as targeting towards the boy at full launch as well as a great terrifying distance shot on him being attacked with blood spraying along with people panicking and running back to shore which looked adrenalised and well done.
We have a meeting about closing down the beach and arguments about it which showed convincing political crap that we hate to hear in our everyday lives as well as the mayors just being idiotic about it as all of this was quite well done while we carry on watching this. Also a great distracting moment with Quint scratching his nails on the blackboard to grab people's attention which was incredibly effective.
Perfect sitty as well as terrifying moment with two dimwitted redneck fishermen trying to find a way to catch the shark using a bait and it backfires with a pier crashing into the water with one of them struggling to get back to shore onto the remaining pier as this for sure makes you watch cautiously wondering or not he will make it.
Interesting humorous moments with everyone wanting to have their pic taken thinking that they caught the shark with popular camera shots with this dead shark hung which is a tiger shark as the makers made it look convincing that this fish isn't deadly looking at all and making us cringe knowing that the real killer shark is in the water and probably looking deadly when we wait and see on what this object really looks like.
Funny moments when both Martin and Matt Hooper gut open the dead shark and see what is inside of it that it ate including a metal license plate and nice close up shots on this.
Perfect misty shots on both Martin and Matt on a boat going to an abandoned one as welll as a perfect jumping moment on what they discover in a door of a boat in the water which is truthfully scary and catching you by surprise big time.
Nice shots on boats coming to the beach on the 4th of July as well as typical moments on Larry trying to encourage others to go swimming. Later on great moments on people panicking on getting to shore after spotting a sharks fin as well as the lifeguards ordering everyone to get out of the water. Then we discover it's a prank which is a nice start off to having a real situation happening and that's just what we get.
Great shot on a big sharks fin buit there's a big of a screw up as we see both of them as well as a perfect shot on a dimwitted one on a rowboat talking to some kids along with a good shot on the shark rising up from the water to attack this person as this was a classic horror moment in the film and one of my favourite scene's along with the shark then zooming past little Mike Brody and a good close up shot on him being in shock which looked marvellous.
Nicely energised moments with Martin, Quint and Matt preparing to go out and hunt for the shark as well as a perfect shot on Martin himself throwing in bit of dead fish into the water as well as the shark rising up from the water which looked great and surprising to watch. Also good powerful moments when they try to shoot at the shark or try to put a peare with barrels to this thing as alot of the results looked amusing to see how powerful this shark really is.
Perfect and natural situations with the three of them joking around and having a good time as this looked realistic in their boat at night as well as both Quint and Matt shwoing each others scars from the battles they had with other sharks and stuff like that acting young at heart. This draws you in well and nicely dramatic as well as them singing and then hearing a killer whale calling out at night which sounded effective and still in the silent night. All of this was well done and concentrated too.
Great shots on Matt in a cage going in the water and then the shark swimming past him as well as things seeming calm and then charging out of wohere which looked firghtening to watch as well as this shark trying to crash in which keeps you in suspense wondering if Matt will survive this as it was well shot.
Plus the best is yet to come when the shark tries to attack the boat which looked incredibly terrorising as well as Quint sliding down and good close up shots on this as this looked genuinely terrifying. Plus good moments on Martin trying to struggle on the remians of the boat and the shark trying to get at him as this looked truly suspenseful.
Bottom line is that this film was the
very first horror flick I watched when I
was about 7 or 8 years of age. Of course it scared me imagining a great
white shark attacking people as it made
me too scared to swim in the water again
but of course my parents assured me that
the water here was too cold for a shark
to swim in and there are only mud sharks
(In other words catfish) that live here
as they are too small to attack people
plus they said there is not a shark that
powerful either. I have no criticism of this film since
it's one of the most influential and best
film of that decade. However one small criticism is the boating stuff was a wee bit long. Every bit of this film I loved and is true
Oscar nominated material and a classic to
top it off. This film is basically geared for people
all ages as even the young one's will
love it too if they can take a tiny bit
of suspense in a film like this. This was also the flick that inspired
other films like Pirahna
and Tentacles but they
were nowhere near as good as this one in
The acting is
marvellous as we have tons of known faces
like Roy Schieder (Police Chief
Martin Brody) who plays a
terrific officer and is believeable
playing a family man too trying to
protect his children from the ocean. He has a good seriousness to his role along with doing well by acting incredibly alterted to the terrors that happen in the flick. Also does well enjoying a chuckle within a conversation as this was also very natural to watch along with showing his angered frustrations. Plus does well with his hyped energy when the terrors happen towards him and getting into this a great deal.
Robert Shaw (Quint) played a nice jack ass
in the film showing a perfect reaction to
his arrogance. Had the perfect accent as well as his gruff behavior. Plus comes across as someone whom is convincingly irritable and cocky too making you want to hit him sometimes. Has a good tough as nails behavior too. Plus does well getting the party started up in a boat scene at night as well as getting good and serious when he tells his tale of a battle with a shark in which he does this strongly and serious too.
We also have legendary and Oscar winning
leading actor Richard Dreyfuss
(Matt Hooper) as a shark researcher as he does bring a
chill with his lines. Shows a perfect bubbly and hyped up behavior and always on his feet. Also offers some humor into his part too and coming across as a natural ham within this. Also does well with his short attitude too along with having a perfect aggression when he gets ticked off. Plus was great when he is joking around or getting into a heavy conversation in the boat at night which he is a natural acting full of life and enjoying himself. He for sure was different in this role than other roles I've seen him in. Always was a natural character actor.
Lorraine Gary (Ellen Brody) does her job nicely as the caring family woman along with having a convincingly niceness to her part along with doing well by being stern in a scene towards her onscreen husband on being too touchy with their onscreen kids by being in the water in which she shows off a great energetic attitude within this. She also does well with her sobbing and upsetting emotional attitude when the shark attacks happen and really getting into this. Become an icon for the Jaws series as fans will always remember her work in them and pulls it off perfectly in every one of them.
Murray Hamilton (Mayor Larry Vaughn) lived to play a pigheaded politician with his gruff speaking as well as coming across as believeably ignorant and closed minded on dangerous situations. He really brought his role to life a great deal within whatever he had to do. Also does a good job by being a bad influence towards others too by encouraging them to swim in the ocean offering a good wicked charm and appeal to this.
Carl Gottlieb (Ben Meadows) was perfectly convincing as a photographer who's too annoying and overbearing in which he adds a good wit to this part of the story. Had the right burly goofy looks to what he had to do here. He for sure had a great energetic and hyped up behavior who comes across as a bit of an idiot.
Jeffrey Kramer (Deputy Lenny
Hendricks) does his job convincingly for his supporting role and can be remembered with his on the ball attitude and anxious speaking. He for sure worked hard on his part and had a good young man type of charisma. Didn't seem to let an ounce of energy down within all of this. Deserves some good credit.
Chris Rebello (Mike Brody) seemed to have a good solid performance as the eldest son in which he does a nice job with someone trying to have a good time and having a good well behaved attitude too. Plus does well reacting shocked when the shark swims past him which he does a classic performance within this.
There is a piece
of a hand
A leg is chomped off.
Also there is a corpse with an eye
A man is eaten alive by the great white
At the end the great white explodes
Of course we have John
Williams' classic composing as we
all know the deep violin playing of the
killer shark coming in on it's prey as it
was used for many shows too and will
always be remembered. Also we have alot of trombone and clarinet playing along with the drum sounds and clangings too as all of this sounded incredibly effective and working in each scene terrifically.
There's a songtrack by an
artist named Lynn Anderson with
her track "I Honestly Love You"
used in the movie which sounds nice and
peaceful during a brief sequence in the movie as this was a bit of an add combination for the film.
Tom Cassidy: What's your name
Christine 'Chrissie' Watkins:
Tom Cassidy: Where are we going?
Christine 'Chrissie' Watkins:
'Chrissie' Watkins: Come on into the
I'm not going to waste my time arguing
with a man who's lining up to be a hot
Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'.
I'll catch this bird for you, but it
ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like
going down to the pond and chasing
bluegills and tommycocks. This shark,
swallow you whole. No shakin', no
tenderizin', down you go. And we gotta do
it quick, that'll bring back your
tourists, put all your businesses on a
payin' basis. But it's not gonna be
pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than
three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find
him for three, but I'll catch him, and
kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make
up your minds. If you want to stay alive,
then ante up. If you want to play it
cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I
don't want no volunteers, I don't want no
mates, there's too many captains on this
island. Ten thousand dollars for me by
myself. For that you get the head, the
tail, the whole damn thing.
Vaughn: Fellows, let's be reasonable,
huh? This is not the time or the place to
perform some kind of a half-assed autopsy
on a fish... And I'm not going to stand
here and see that thing cut open and see
that little Kintner boy spill out all
over the dock.
Vaughn: Martin, it's all
psychological. You yell barracuda,
everybody says, "Huh? What?"
You yell shark, we've got a panic on our
hands on the Fourth of July.
You were on the Indianapolis?
Brody: What happened?
Quint: Japanese submarine slammed
two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We
was comin' back from the island of Tinian
to Leyte... just delivered the bomb. The
Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went
into the water. Vessel went down in 12
minutes. Didn't see the first shark for
about a half an hour. Tiger. 13-footer.
You know how you know that when you're in
the water, Chief? You tell by looking
from the dorsal to the tail. What we
didn't know, was our bomb mission had
been so secret, no distress signal had
been sent. They didn't even list us
overdue for a week. Very first light,
Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed
ourselves into tight groups. You know, it
was kinda like old squares in the battle
like you see in the calendar named
"The Battle of Waterloo" and
the idea was: shark comes to the nearest
man, that man he starts poundin' and
hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the
shark go away... but sometimes he
wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he
looks right into ya. Right into your
eyes. And, you know, the thing about a
shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black
eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes
at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until
he bites ya, and those black eyes roll
over white and then... ah then you hear
that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The
ocean turns red, and despite all the
poundin' and the hollerin', they all come
in and they... rip you to pieces. You
know by the end of that first dawn, lost
a hundred men. I don't know how many
sharks, maybe a thousand. I know how many
men, they averaged six an hour. On
Thursday morning, Chief, I bumped into a
friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from
Cleveland. Baseball player. Boatswain's
mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached
over to wake him up. Bobbed up, down in
the water just like a kinda top. Upended.
Well, he'd been bitten in half below the
waist. Noon, the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a
Lockheed Ventura saw us. He swung in low
and he saw us... he was a young pilot, a
lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he
saw us and he come in low and three hours
later a big fat PBY comes down and starts
to pick us up. You know that was the time
I was most frightened... waitin' for my
turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket
again. So, eleven hundred men went in the
water; 316 men come out and the sharks
took the rest, June the 29th, 1945.
Anyway, we delivered the bomb.
Gardner: When we get them silly
bastards down in that rock pile, it'll be
some fun, they'll wish their fathers had
never met their mothers. When they start
takin' their bottoms out and slamming
into them rocks, boy! Get away from
there, ya goddamn fool, you! What's the
matter with you? You wanna swamp us, ya
crazy son of a bitch?
Tom Cassidy: What's your name
Christine 'Chrissie' Watkins:
Tom Cassidy: Where are we going?
Christine 'Chrissie' Watkins:
Brody: [to Chief Brody] You
told me the shark was caught. And I, I
heard it on the news... I heard it on the
Hooper: They caught A shark, not
THE shark. Big difference. Not the shark
that killed Chrissie Watkins... and
probably not the shark that killed the
little boy... which I wanted to prove
today, by cutting the shark open.
[to Brody] Please don't smoke.
[Returns to post-mortem]
Hooper: With minor post-mortem
lacerations and abrasions. Bite marks
indicate typical non- frenzy feeding
pattern of large squali, possibly
carchaninus lonimanus, or isurus glaucas.
Gross tissue loss and post-mortem erosion
of bite surfaces prevent detailed
analysis; however, teeth and jaws of the
attacking squali must be considered above
average for these waters.
Brody: What day is this?
Hooper: It's Wednesday... eh, it's
Tuesday, I think.
Brody: Think the tide's with us?
Hooper: Keep kicking.
Brody: I used to hate the water...
Hooper: I can't imagine why.
Vaughn: What kind of a shark did you
say it was?
Hooper: Carcaradon carcharias. A
[before leaving dock] Break it up
will ya', Chief! Daylight's wastin'.
[trying to hurry Brody into the boat]
Come on Chief, this isn't no boy scout
picnic. See ya' got ya' rubbers!
[Quint laughs wildly]
[talking Brody through making knots]
Little brown eel comes out of the cave...
Swims into the hole... Comes out of the
hole... Goes back into the cave again...
It's not too good is it Chief?
[Refering to Brody's messed up knot]

the barrels] Come on Martin! Move,
Brody: I'm not going out there!
Hooper: Beyond the edge of the
barrels, go to the end of the barrels!
Hooper: Further out!
Hooper: Go further out!
Brody: What for?
Hooper: Will you go to the end of

Hooper: Will you just please go to
the end of the pulpit!
Brody: What for?
Hooper: I need to have something
in the foreground to give it some scale.
Brody: Foreground, my ass!
He ate the light.
Ha, ha - they're all gonna die.

Quint: Twenty-five. Three tons of

Hooper: Alright, alright. Hey, I
don't need this... I don't need this
You're gonna need a bigger boat.
It doesn't make any sense when you pay a
guy like you to watch sharks.
Hooper: Well, uh, it doesn't make
much sense for a guy who hates the water
to live on an island either.
Brody: It's only an island if you
look at it from the water.
Hooper: That makes a lot of sense.
Brody: [upon meeting Matt Hooper]
My husband tells me you're in sharks.
Vaughn: I don't think either of one
you are familiar with our problems.
Hooper: I think that I am familiar
with the fact that you are going to
ignore this particular problem until it
swims up and bites you on the ass.
Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women.
Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at
the age of a hundred and three. For

"Slow ahead." I can go slow

Vaughn: [to reporter] I'm
pleased and happy to repeat the news that
we have, in fact, caught and killed a
large predator that supposedly injured
some bathers. But, as you see, it's a
beautiful day, the beaches are open and
people are having a wonderful time.
Amity, as you know, means

are you? Some kind of half-assed

Quint: Jesus H Christ, when I was
a boy, every little squirt wanted to be a
harpooner or a sword fisherman. What d'ya
have there - a portable shower or a
Hooper: Anti-Shark cage.
Quint: Anti-shark cage. You go
inside the cage?
Quint: Cage goes in the water, you
go in the water. Shark's in the water.
Quint: Farewell and adieu to you,
fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu,
you ladies of Spain. For we've received
orders for to sail back to Boston. And so
nevermore shall we see you again.
Front, bow. Back, stern. If ya don't get
it right, squirt, I throw your ass out
the little round window on the side.
Brody: Martin hates boats. Martin
hates water. Martin... Martin sits in his
car when we go on the ferry to the
mainland. I guess it's a childhhod thing.
It's a... there's a clinical name for it
That's some bad hat, Harry.
Hooper ya idiot. Starboard. Ain't you

bounty on the shark in cash or check?

Mrs. Taft: I don't think that's

What are you doing out there? These are
your people - go and talk to them.
Hendricks: Those aren't my people.
They're from all over the place. Did you

parking lot? Connecticut, Rhode Island,
New Jersey... I'm all by myself out
[Poking fun at Brody] Ah, the
missus, Chief. If they don't like you
going out, they'll love you comin' in.
Brody sends the air tanks flying]
Hooper: Dammit, Martin! This is
Brody: Well, what the hell kind of
a knot was that?
Hooper: You pulled the wrong one.
You screw around with these tanks, and
they're gonna blow up!
Quint: Yeah, that's real fine
expensive gear you brought out here, Mr.
Hooper. 'Course I don't know what that
bastard shark's gonna do with it, might

to serve them up a smorgasbord.
So then Denherder and Charlie sat there
trying to catch their breath - and to

not funny at all.

haven't seen anything yet. Over and out.

singing together] I had a little

It may be a marlin or a stingray... but
it's definitely a game fish.

Hooper: Quint, that doesn't prove
a damn thing!
Quint: Well it proves one thing,
Mr. Hooper. It proves that you wealthy
college boys don't have the education
enough to admit when you're wrong.
[Quint enters the cabin as Hooper
makes faces at him]
Brody: [following Quint inside
the boat] What's the point? Hooks and
Quint: [slams on the roof at
Hooper] Hooper! 12 minutes south
south east now, full throttle!
Hooper: [Mocking Pirate Voice]
Aye, aye, sir! AYE JIMBOY ARAGHHH!
Quint: [to Brody] See what
I do, Chief, is I trick 'em to the
surface. And I jab at 'em. I'm not gonna
haul 'em up like a lot of catfish.
[slams on the roof]
Quint: Hooper, full throttle!
Hooper: [voice imitating W.C.
Fields] I don't have to take this
abuse much longer!
Hooper, what exactly can you do with
these things of yours?
Hooper: Well, I think I can pump
20 cc's of strictnine nitrate into him,
if I can get close enough.
Quint: Can you get this little
needle through his skin?
Hooper: No, I can't do that. But
if I can get him close enough to this
cage, I think that I can get him in the
mouth or the eye...
Brody: That shark will rip that
cage to pieces!
Hooper: [shouting] YOU GOT
ANY BETTER SUGGESTIONS?
Brody: You see the kids?
Brody: [looking out the window]
They must be in the back yard.
Ellen Brody: In Amity, you say
Brody: [starting out of the
bedroom, speaking with a bad New-England
accent] They're in the

Ellen Brody: Like you're from New
'Chrissie' Watkins: GOD HELP ME!
You're certifiable, Quint! You know that?
Quint: Yeah, yeah, yeah...
Kintner: Chief Brody?
[Mrs. Kintner slaps Brody and sobs]
Mrs. Kintner: I just found out,
that a girl got killed here last week,
and you knew it! You knew there was a
shark out there! You knew it was
dangerous! But you let people go swimming
anyway? You knew all those things! But
still my boy is dead now. And there's
nothing you can do about it. My boy is
dead. I wanted you to know that.
[Mrs. Kintner walks away]
Mayor Vaughn: I'm sorry, Martin.
Brody: No, she's not.
I'm not talkin' 'bout pleasure boatin' or
day sailin'. I'm talkin' 'bout workin'
for a livin'. I'm talkin' 'bout sharkin'!
[to Mayor Vaughn, after the shark
attack on July Fourth] Larry, the
summer is over. You're the mayor of
"shark city". These people
think you want the beaches open.
Mr. Vaughn, what we are dealing with here
is a perfect engine, an eating machine.
It's really a miracle of evolution. All
this machine does is swim and eat and
make little sharks, and that's all. Now,
why don't you take a long, close look at

Hooper: Those proportions are

wouldn't ya? Get your name into the
