The two sons of police
chief Martin Brody named Mike (Dennis
Quiad) and Sean (John Putch) leave Amity
Island to work at Florida's Sea World
amusement park run by Calvin Bouchard
(Louis Gossett Jr.) and to forget about
the shark incidents as they have fun
there hanging out and helping out with
the entertainment along with a newly
built part of Sea World called the
Undersea Kingdom made 40 feet underwater
in a man made lagoon.
Mike's girlfriend named Kathryn Morgan
(Bess Armstrong) is Sea World's scientist
working with dolphins and Sean befirends
with a local there named Kelly Ann
Burkowski (Lea Thompson)
But one of their workers named Shelby
Overman vanishes and others are
Both Mike and Kathryn head into the water
as they are nearly attacked by a baby
great white but they capture it to bring
to Sea World for display as no one could
believe that a great white resided in
their ocean and then the baby dies.
Suddenly they found Overman's body torn
up lifelessly in the ocean and it wasn't
caused by the baby shark judging by the
bite size of him as their mother is also
caught there and then terrorises everyone
at the Undersea Kingdom leaving nowhere
to run as this mother is angry and
destroys everything when the rest tries
to ward everyone off the ocean including
the performers but they may be too late
for that even.
There are nice camera shots on a boat
carrying some water skiiers for a show
and then falling into the water with the
camera underwater watching them as you
wonder if the shark will get one of them.
There's a good setting with the main group of people in the film in a bar and having a good time.
Nice conversation between Mike Brody and Kathryn Morgan walking along the beach at night with him discussing briefly his bad
exprerience with a shark in his hometown.
A nice moment with Kelly Ann Bukowski trying to urge Sean Brody to go
swimming with him being hesitant about
There's a good shot on a couple sneaking into Sea World and using a float
onto the water with some mist flying
around. The scene didn't look suspenseful
with the boyfriend being pulled into
the water as well there's a shot on the
float being dragged in as well.
We have a nice chasing scene with Mike and Kathryn riding on some
dolphins away from a shark.
A good discussion between Kathryn and Calvin Bouchard on having a great white at their Sea
Nice moment with Kathryn in
the water trying to hunt the shark and
the shark coming up from behind her and
biting her water tank which looked fairly
There are lots of good shots with people
performing at Sea World as well as the
whales and dolphins doing tricks along
with the water skiing acts.
A perfect shot on the killer
mother shark staring at the people
underwater in an Undersea Kingdom with
Good shot on Mike driving his
boat screaming to people to get out of
the water as well as running around
trying to ward others off.
Another good shot of him speeding his
boat to shore.
A good shot on the shark with it's mouth
over Philip FitzRoyce with a
good shot inside the mouth as he tries to
struggle to get out which makes you
wonder if he's going to make it out.
Phony effects shot on the shark
swimming towards the glass in a control
room but it looked terrifying with the
glass breaking and the water rushing in.
Bottom line is that this is a disappointing
sequel taking place off the Amity Island
which doesn't feel the same at all. The
effects looked bad due to a 3D type of a
film and probably no one wanted to put as
much funding into it like the first two
but there are some odd scares with the
giant shark so that makes up for the film
from sinking as well as good shots at
some performances at Sea World which all
of this was filmed in Orlando's Universal
Studio's and not Hollywood this time.
The acting is fair
and could have been a bit better but it;s
not too terrible. Dennis Quaid
(Mike Brody) this time steps in the play the role of
the oldest sibling of the
family who survived the last shark attack
as you notice every different actor
seemed to play this role in each of the
films. Does well talking through a
bullhorn on the beach pretending he's the
police to trick his onscreen brother. Seems to do well stunned on
shore and freaking out. His
panicked energy needed to be picked up a
bit when trying to get everyone out of the water. He is generally good in his roles
but however, he seemed to be a bit off
key in this one.
Bess Armstrong (Katheryn Morgan) tries to bring energy
to her role as well with her words and
aggression but still stands out as
average too. She does well
being aggressive to have a great white being at Sea World.
Louis Gossett Jr. (Calvin Bouchard) seemed to put some
characterisitics in his part of the film
as the head employer at Sea World as he
was the best one in the film I found.
Lea Thompson (Kelly Ann Bukowski) was another nice
character actress in the film with her
outgoing attitude which makes you want to
be around her. She has a nice painful reaction to
from a shark bite. This was her film debut
and made a huge success with her acting
An arm is chewed
There's a corpse with his skin torn off
We have some fairly weak
classical music with the violin tones not
meeting up to the original Jaws film
composed by Alan Parker.
However, there is some great heroic
classical music towards the end of the
film that is only worth being nicely
Overman was killed inside the park. The
baby was caught inside the park. It's
mother is inside the park.
Calvin Bouchard: You
mean we talkin' about some damn shark's
Ted: [trying to
start the boat] Damn boat. I flooded
the... Damn boat!
