Jaws 2 (1978)

Unlike many iconic horror franchises that feature one antagonist who survives kill after kill, there are thousands of Great White Sharks in the water, and many of them are willing to step up to the plate.

Jaws II picks up some years after the first one and is a carbon copy of the original. Our heroic police chief, Martin Brody (Rob Schneider), is once again considered crazy as he tries to protect the innocent citizens of his small town from a shark attack. 

Instead of building up a solid sequel with another shark, the focus shifts to Chief Brody rescuing his idiotic kids and their dumb friends. If people had only listened to warnings and the Brody kids listened to their dad, no one would have died. Then again, the shark may have hung around the beach and killed more or less than what he got in the open waters. 

There is a lot of things wrong with this second installment, mainly because it failed to create something new from the original, and it lacked the intense sequences we were shocked with before. 

If you browse the internet, you’ll see that I am not the only one who dislikes this film or the rest of the series. I wish I could tell you that Jaws II was a great success and continued a legacy of the first one. Sadly that wasn’t the case. 3/10
