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

Jaws is looking a bit long in the tooth these days.

Let`s put it this way: When you see and hear the nasal Lorraine Gary on screen you want the shark to eat her.

'Jaws: The Revenge' bears the marks of its rushed production, from the seemingly first-draft screenplay to its sloppy execution to the slender running time (under 90 minutes without credits) to the generally cheap look and feel.

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.

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.

Boring and unnecessary sequel, some shark attacks.

Everything in Jaws the Revenge is utterly expectable, which isn't a bright idea for a film relying on suspense and tension.

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.

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?
