Cheesy '80s sequel has lots of violence, peril.

Antagony & Ecstasy

So hokey and so incredibly incompetent in execution that it feels less wicked in its ignorance and more like a comic relief hillbilly, of the sort seen in this very movie's water-skiing interludes.

Put in a baking tray, gas mark 7, and enjoy a turkey.

Eye for Film

Jaws 3-D ultimately suffers from the same problem as many cute animal films aimed at kids. It spends far too much of its time on boring humans and their boring relationships.

It's harmless but unsurprising.

Rob Vaux

A living testament to how low a studio will stoop to generate a few bucks.

Unlike Jaws 2 I have no respect for this film and the fact that it tries to relate itself with the classic film by Mr. Spielberg. Shame on you Joe Alves.

Better than Jaws 2, but it has the annoying hallmarks of a 3D movie. Also the kill count is ridiculouly low...so many missed opportunities for Sea World guests… More

Jaws was a good blockbuster, Jaws 2 was an Ok blockbuster. This is an excuse to cash in on the first one. The 3D in the cinema was as bad as this movie overall.
