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.

A movie that has made generations of kids and adults second guess what is beneath them when going into ocean waters. The film captured the fear and emotions necessary to pull of a good animal attack movie. This is a classic and will go down in history as one of the best Nature Horror movies of all time. Now if only people would stop piggy backing with movies like Shark Night and Pirahnnas 3D.

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...

Jaws review

Amity Island encounters a threat on the innocent beach since a voluptuous woman and a young boy has been attacked by an unknown entity. After discovering it was a shark, the islands chief police Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), biologist Matt Hooper and a professional shark hunter named Quint (Robert Shaw) delves into an adventure to stop this menace from feeding. One Steven Spielberg’s earlier creations, the story is fast and continuous. Character development is likewise impeccable since you get to know the characters history and sometimes eclectic personalities. Brody is the serious, reflective and dedicated competent family man; Hooper is the rich geek who loves discovering marine life and the cocky but calculated calmness of Quint. A few memorable lines: Martin Brody – “You’re gonna ...
