REVIEWS:





"As far as sequels go, 1978's 'Jaws 2' stands as a pretty decent example.
I enjoyed this film. Granted, not as much as the 1975 original classic,
but this second installment in the series had some very scary and
tense moments of its own. .... I thought the group of young people
assembled to form the cast of 'Jaws 2' did a darn good job."

Note about Vincent Canby's New York Times review linked above:

I think Mr. Canby is way off base in some of his criticism of "Jaws 2".
There are a lot of good things in the movie, including the cast of very
likeable teenagers and the camerawork, which Canby regarded as subpar.
But there is actually some very good cinematography in this movie,
including this superb shot at the end of the film which has the shark
heading straight for Chief Brody (and the camera).

In hindsight, I wonder if some reviewers thought it was their duty to
dislike this movie simply because it's a sequel to one of the greatest
and most successful motion pictures in history? Maybe the thinking
among some of the critics at the time was that any sequel that followed
Steven Spielberg's masterpiece could never even begin to hold a candle to
the original. And while I don't think "Jaws 2" is as good as Mr. Spielberg's
1975 film, it's not nearly as bad as Vincent Canby
makes it out to be in his review.
