This third sequel to the 1975 mega-hit Jaws returns Lorraine Gary to the role of Ellen Brody, widow of the Roy Scheider character from the first two films. When her son Sean, the current police chief of shark-plagued Amity Island, is killed by the beast, Ellen goes to the Bahamas to comfort her surviving son. Michael Brody (Lance Guest) and his friend Jake (Mario Van Peebles) are marine biologists there to help, but in the end it is up to Ellen and her new beach-bum love -- played by Michael Caine -- to put a halt to the fishy horror.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Thrillseekers, this one's pretty dismal."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"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."
‑ Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film
"A ludicrous and laughable sequel that desecrates the name of a fantastic original."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"A franchise sinks in this sequel's endless sea of incompetence."
‑ Jonathan R. Perry, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"It's mostly just a matter of waiting till feeding time."
‑ Raven Snook, Time Out
"After Steven Spielberg's original, which combined shock effects with comedy and grand sea adventure touches, the series has degenerated into your basic fish-bites-man story, with very few imaginative wrinkles."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Savagely dull, though at least it is tremendously incompetent as well, and thus marginally amusing, especially when the shark is actually onscreen."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"it's... amazing!"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"Okay, I'm sold. It's the worst sequel ever made. Yes, even including Batman and Robin."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Mild and predictable, the very things an adventure movie should never be."
‑ Caryn James, New York Times
"The shark models have so little movement that at times they seem to be supporting themselves on boats, instead of attacking them. Up until the ludicrous final sequence of the movie, the scariest creature in the film is an eel."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"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."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Spielberg should never have sold the sequel rights"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Spielberg should have sued for 'breach of earth-shattering stupidity'."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
