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

"Jaws is looking a bit long in the tooth these days."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"Let`s put it this way: When you see and hear the nasal Lorraine Gary on screen you want the shark to eat her."
‑ Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
"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?"
‑ Renee Lucas Wayne, Philadelphia Daily News
"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
"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."
‑ Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Jaws the Revenge, the fourth in a series of monster shark epics, is dead in the water."
‑ Roger Hurlburt, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"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
"Everything in Jaws the Revenge is utterly expectable, which isn't a bright idea for a film relying on suspense and tension."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"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."
‑ Pat Graham, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio 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
