I enjoyed the sequel to my favorite movie ever. Out of the 3 sequels, this one is the best (obviously, a shark gliding in "3D" isn't scary, and words cannot describe how horrendous Jaws The Revenge is). I thought the story was pretty interesting, and the way they kill the shark is cool (no spoilers) as well, with John Williams returning for the musical score. One of the best sequels Hollywood has given us.

This is infact a movie that exists I guess. Yeah, everybody and their grandma has trashed Jaws 2 for its rehashing of the first movie's events & ETC. At first being a confident follow-up to one of the greatest movies of all-time, it stops in its tracks to focus on teens that lack any sort of personality, and the movie just turns into another generic action movie. I'll say this, the first half is absolutely fantastic, and really wreaks the essence of Spielberg's classic, but the rest falls flat.

Ok Jaws 2 to be is an enjoyable movie for me I like everything that goes on besides the ending why are the kids screaming so much god drives me nuts if that was just cut I would have enjoyed this a lot more the pacing from beginning to the second act is actually pretty good I'm that person in horror movies or slashers I like seeing the shark more or more kills than say the original movies, for example, Halloween 1976 to Halloween 1981 I prefer to kills but I love both so this movie the shark is shown a lot to me I love that when I first watched Jaws 1975 I thought it was ok second time watching I love it I respect what that film did and it's history, Martian Brody, in this film I love in the original Jaws he was my second fav character in that movie i am glad he did return I do like the relation ship with Ellen Brody with his character I liked in the first too I like it even more in this movie I feel like after Jaws 2 Jaws lost its name with Jaws 3 and Jaws the Revenge i like that Brody is still working with the police with the shark stuff like that what i don't like is that he got fired really are serious for caring about what is going on that made the pacing way weird after that it killed that compelty when that happened so than we focused on the children that screams a lot the score in this movie has to be underrated it is different from the first to me it is more uniquie the Shark looking amazing in this movie the shark is the best looking in this movie with the burnt mark on the shark the first two Jaws movie the ending are great like how the shark dies or gets killed is pretty awesome that is gone in the last two movies of the Jaws Movies it weird because this movie to be succeeds as a solid movie all round and a good shark movie but for some reason the other Jaws movie lost it's self compelty so I respect what this movie did I liked it more when I watched it the second time So I give Jaws 2 an B
