Jaws the Revenge

Critics Consensus

Illogical, tension-free, and filled with cut-rate special effects, Jaws 4 - The Revenge is a sorry chapter in a once-proud franchise.

The family of widow Ellen Brody (Lorraine Gary) has long been plagued by shark attacks, and this unfortunate association continues when her son is the victim of a massive great white. In mourning, Ellen goes to visit her other son, Michael (Lance Guest), in the Bahamas, where she meets the charming Hoagie Newcombe (Michael Caine). As Ellen and Hoagie begin a relationship, a huge shark appears off the coast of the island, and Ellen's trouble with the great whites begins again.

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

    April 30, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 30, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Everything in Jaws the Revenge is utterly expectable, which isn't a bright idea for a film relying on suspense and tension.

    April 30, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Wait! So we are supposed to believe that the shark went after the family for revenge? That is the worst plot ever, The acting in Jaws 3 was horrible but this is somehow even worse, Lorraine Gary tries to go all Ripley and fails miserably, The shark looked ok in places, But it felt more of a spoof than a sequel, It's not scary it's not fun and the ending was poorly done, Easily the worst if the Jaws films and could be a contender for worst film ever, Let's just be thankful it didn't kill Michael Caines career.

    It's a Christmas miracle! The great white shark comes after the Brodys for Christmas in Jaws: The Revenge, and this time it's personal. When her youngest son is killed by a shark Ellen Brody decides to leave Amity and spend the holidays with her elder son's family in the Bahamas, but her psychic link to the shark draws him there before long; and he proceeds to stalk after her and her son. The plot is ridiculous and Lorraine Gray is terrible (but part of this is the writing). However, Lance Guest delivers a strong performance, and Michael Caine brings a nice levity to the film. Also, the shark effects aren't that bad, though there's no real menace or sense of terror to him (as he's really only after the Brodys and whoever gets in the way). For a B-horror movie, Jaws: The Revenge is alright and a slight step up from part 3; but it's not good and an absolute travesty compared to the original.

    "Jaws: The Revenge" is a terrible movie and definitely the worst "Jaws" sequel. The acting in this movie is bad, the only good actor is "Michael Caine". The plot to "Jaws: The Revenge" is that a shark wants to get revenge on the "Brody" family for all the other sharks that were killed. The plot is the worst plot to a movie I have ever seen. "Jaws: The Revenge" has terrible horror shots of people being murdered by the shark. The music in this movie is terrible, there is no music in the film that fits in with any of the scenes. Finally this movie is no boring there are no entertaining scenes at all. I highly recommend you DO NOT watch "Jaws: The Revenge" as it is a horrible film. So I give "Jaws: The Revenge" a 0.5/10.
