Jaws is looking a bit long in the tooth these days.

Dumb beyond belief, hollow, bloody and nonsensical, it's Universal Studios' vanity movie, a way of providing employment yet again for its Great White icon.

Everything in Jaws the Revenge is utterly expectable, which isn't a bright idea for a film relying on suspense and tension.

Let`s put it this way: When you see and hear the nasal Lorraine Gary on screen you want the shark to eat her.

A lot of the time, the people in this picture just stand around looking very sad, as if remembering happier days. Watching this sorry film, you know how they must feel.

Sargent's enough of an action vet to grind out a watchable sequel, but too much of a TV hack to turn the arbitrary dramatics into anything but synthetic pulp.

The fact that you have to suspend your intelligence to even get through 'Jaws - The Revenge doesn't help matters. Is a shark smart enough to follow a person from New York to the Bahamas?

Jaws the Revenge, the fourth in a series of monster shark epics, is dead in the water.

This is the one where the big rubber shark gets to attack an aircraft, but that's far from being the only silly thing about this preposterous fourth entry in the series.

Eye for Film

Beyond the ridiculous premise, there's nowhere for this story to go, and we don't get enough shark action to make up for it.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Savagely dull, though at least it is tremendously incompetent as well, and thus marginally amusing, especially when the shark is actually onscreen.

Pacing leaves a lot to be desired and the moment-of-attack sequences, full of jagged cuts and a great deal of noise, more closely resemble the view from inside a washing machine.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Poorly directed by Joseph Sargent, who relies heavily on blood and fast editing to create tension since there certainly isn't any written into the script.

Mild and predictable, the very things an adventure movie should never be.

A franchise sinks in this sequel's endless sea of incompetence.

Okay, I'm sold. It's the worst sequel ever made. Yes, even including Batman and Robin.
