Rather pointless re-telling of the ultimate shark story. A bunch of mildly irritating teens are a little harder to have sympathy for, but at least Roy Scheider stayed on board...

A dumbed down version of the first that is barely half as entertaining. It piles on the attacks and the body count is higher, but so what?

Although the main cast is back with the same realistic conviction in their performances, the suspense is largely sucked out of most of the action scenes. The shark becomes more of a "slasher" villain, having a scarred face and specifically stalking its prey, rather than the scarily mysterious rogue beast of the first film. Sillier than the first.

Although not as good as the original (what sequel truly ever is?) this one at least is watchable. It still has that sense of dread and foreboding, and the shark looks a little better this time. Worth at least one watch.
