1978 Certificate: pg


Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... No sooner has police chief Roy Scheider picked up the pieces after the last shark attack on Amity Island than along comes another Great White problem for him to deal with. More holidaymakers find themselves in dorsal danger in this high-tension sequel to Spielberg's box office monster.


  • Jeannot Szwarc


  • Roy Scheider

  • Lorraine Gary

  • Murray Hamilton


Roy Scheider again gives a good performance as the police chief in this more-of-the-same first sequel that's a couple of notches down from the original.

Once more the citizens, again led by Murray Hamilton as the Mayor, won't believe him about the shark menace and even go as far as firing him.

There are as many teasing shots of swimmers taken from below the surface as the plot will decently allow before Scheider and the shark come to their final showdown.
