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.

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat”

‘Jaws’ is the original summer blockbuster, setting the standard by which all others are measured. It’s the Michael Jordan of cinema: there will never be another 'Jaws,’ simply because the film so profoundly changed the way movies are made and marketed.

Based on Peter Benchley’s bestselling novel, 'Jaws’ centers around the fictional North Atlantic resort island of Amity, which finds itself terrorized by an enormous great white shark. Our hero is Martin Brody, a New York cop who took the job as Chief of the Amity PD to get his family out of the city and then finds himself in the midst of an unprecedented crisis none of his prior experience has prepared him for. The remains of young Christine Watkins are found on the beach, the apparent victim of a shark attack(Chrissie Watkins’ death sce...

Maybe the Shark Did Work?

This film in particular may be the perfect example of how the limitations of making a movie during a specific time period can enhance a film tenfold. Steven Spielberg did not need any extravagant special effects for a film that may very well have been the first summer blockbuster. All Spielberg needed was every single problem that a director can experience on a set and a shark that could not work. The film looks fantastic with it's beautiful point of view shots of the ocean and the fictional community of Amity Island. It makes me wonder whether or not this film would have been as good if the shark worked. Many people tend to side with the negative half of the argument. All I know is that this film is well shot, well acted, and well paced....not to mention this film has what may very well ...

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.
