Jaws is likely the film that put Spielberg on the map as the creative auteur he is. The film not only creates a compelling cast of human characters, but displays masterful subtlety in the way it builds tension around its movie monster. There are no outrageous action scenes and, save for a few shots, the shark isn't even shown in full, and, yet, the film is a nonstop fearfest of gripping tension and suspense. Great stuff and definitely one of Spielberg's best films.

Dun dun dun dun dun dudududu....

Few creature features are as thrilling and suspenseful as Steven Spielberg's classic Jaws. He knew what he was doing when he adapted Peter Benchley's bestseller for the big screen.
The backdoor production problems were infamous but as history showed, it was all worth it as Jaws became the first true blockbuster of the modern Hollywood era and it remains among the best. This is doubtlessly the result of the combined talents of Steven Spielberg, the trio of talented actors (Scheider, Shaw, and Dreyfus), and John Williams for his famously chilling score.
Sure it may have spawned a slew of imitators and a series of mediocre-to-terrible sequels, but the original film itself has not lost its touch. It's amazing how well it's aged and how it remains so effectively suspenseful.

Another classic from the master

Possible Spoilers

Jaws was the first major blockbuster in cinema history, and received extremely positive critical response, as well as mainstream acclaim. Some movie lovers regard it as a classic, and so do I.
Steven Spielberg really got noticed after making this movie, and for good reason: it's phenomenal.
The direction, the cinematography and camera work (especially underwater), the acting, the music and the screenplay stand out as bright pros in this film, because they all work together excellently.
The characters are relatable and have their fair share of development. Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfus were very charismatic.
The music is definitely the strongest attribute. There John Williams' score is simple, but menacing and enthralling (DADADADADA DAAH-DUN).

"Jaws" by Yojimbo

Steven Spielberg's classic monster movie is a supremely accomplished slice of popular entertainment and one of my enduring favourites. His directorial expertise shines as he perfectly manipulates the mood of the film aided by John Williams frankly perfect score. He contrasts the ferocious attacks with their broiling red stained surf and hysterical screaming with the serene peacefulness of the lapping moonlit waves from the very first scene, and uses misdirection and comic asides to engineer a tangible sense of tension as you wait for the shark to appear. Of course, the clunkily mechanical beast that completely fails to recreate the grace of the real animals is easy to criticise, but for the most part Jaws' presence is hinted at through a clever combination of first person camera work, rea...
