All Critics (12)

The Shark Is Still Working isn't necessarily better than The Making of Jaws, but it trods less familiar ground.

Film Freak Central

While the main players (Spielberg, Scheider, Dreyfuss) have appeared in other documentaries, they are more relaxed here, telling stories never told before with a sly wink like someone finally betraying a secret

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

The Shark Is Still Working is well worth a look for diehard devotees of Jaws (and even those who just love 'Shark Week')

pulsates with the kind of admiration and genuine love for film that is all too often dismissed as overeager fanboy veneration and not recognized as the kind of passion that keeps art alive and kicking

A masterful companion piece to the various supplements surrounding the perfect popcorn hit, it's the smart and insightful sugar coating on three decades of fascinating fish stories.

Audience Reviews for The Shark Is Still Working

Very informative and entertaining. This documentary doesn't so much as show how the film Jaws was made, but it's impact and legacy. It's main focus is the first film, which itself shows much history. Many interviews, images, clips, and so much more. It's easy to tell that much love went into the making of this, and I highly recommend it.

A detailed account not of the filming of Jaws, but of the phenomena surrounding the film. It's good to see what must have been some of the last interviews with main players in the success of Jaws before their deaths.

Reasonable documentary that discusses the effects "Jaws" had on the film industry, and on Martha's Vineyard, where it was filmed. There are lots of good interviews with key filmmakers and actors. The downside, however, is in interviewing at-the-time "hot-shot" directors like M. Night Shyamalan, Bryan Singer, etc. who ended up being at-best one-hit wonders. So, their appearances now seem very dated. The production is fairly flat at TV-like. There isn't much flow, and it seems like more of a special features piece than a stand-alone doc.
