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

Critic Reviews for Jaws: The Revenge
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.
Audience Reviews for Jaws: The Revenge
This abomination can only be described with a few words: Boring characters, dialogue that makes you cringe, stupid plot and A SHARK THAT STANDS ON WATER AND ROARS LIKE A LION.
What were they thinking! What was Michael Caine thinking! Another pointless repetition and a meaningless side story about a pilot who likes a woman. Dont go into the cinema.
Wow. First of all this movie completely ignores all that happens in the third movie as if it didn't happen. And what does the shark (with his super powered ability to know where this family is at all times) have to get revenge for? Because it's shark friends were killed by them? The kill count in this movie is a pitiful '2'. Yes, 2 people get eaten. A third gets eaten at the end of the movie, is visibly chomped up, swallowed, stays in the sharks stomach for like 10 minutes underwater and in stomach acid, is rammed by a boat spear inside the shark, and gets electricuted and blown up by a huge bomb within the shark, and then is seen moments later conscious and alive talking in the water with some blood on him. Some studio big wig wanted a happy ending there. Plus they crash their plane in the water for no reason and their boat is instantly floating rubble the second they crash into the shark. Not to mention the shark is magnificent at getting people while they are still safely in the middle of their boat the movie (i'm still scratching my head as to how the son at the begining gets killed). Pretty pathetic, and would be a laughable comedy had someone been here to enjoy it with me. My biggest question is how the hell did they get Michael Caine to do this piece of crap. The best part of it is that Lance Guest from the Last Starfighter was in it, and gave a good creepy stare like old times.
