This is a classic film that I think everyone should watch at least once in their lifetime because he has some iconic lines and it's all around a good film even though it is just about a shark. You wouldn't think a movie about a shark would be this exciting, but here we are.
- The last half when the main 3 are on the boat hunting the shark is the best.
- Very good effects for what materials they had in the 70's.
- Iconic lines
- The bad ass explosion of the shark is a great way to end the film.
- The music score was iconic and will be remembered for decades.
- The first half of the movie is kind of boring because there are really only 2 shark attacks before the good part.
- Why did Quint have to die?
Although it was good, they were on the boat for too long in my opinion.
- Why did they have to kill the dog?
Overall: 3 out of 5 Stars

What a classic. Great characters, fantastic plot. Shark movies do not get any better than this one. Spielberg sure knows how to build tension. Despite the limited slightly aged special effects of the 70’s, the movie is still horrifying and a fantastic watch to this day 8.5/10

The nation's #1 best-selling novel is now the year's most terrifying movie.
Another piece of cinematic greatness from Steven Spielberg is likely the greatest thriller ever made. It’s name is one deadly word: Jaws (1975). Captivating audiences since its release, this mind-blowing suspense film is arguably one that made Spielberg’s career, and, among his many enormously successful films that have his name stamped on, this film is his most perfect. Just say the name Jaws and people, regardless of age, will instantaneously know the film you’re referring to. Why? Because of its many iconic lines, scenes, cinematography, acting and writing, which have allowed this film to make a name for itself in cinematic history since its release. Speaking of cinematic history, this film is the original summer blockbuster, setting the standard by which we measure and discuss all others. In turn, Jaws profoundly changed the way movies are made and marketed. It’s safe to say that there will never be another moment in film like Jaws. You can take that to the bank. The film changed the way people saw the ocean, and likely forced people to think twice about swimming in beach waters (probably forever). This is possible through the marvelous, breathtaking atmosphere and mood Spielberg creates in almost every scene of this film (similarly to the night scenes in Spielberg’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)). You’ll be glued to your seat, jump from that seat, and, before you know it, forget about the world around you for a while. You’ll be in the film’s famous boat, in a gloomy cabin, and watching with awe alongside onlookers and spectators, all in such a real way. Friends, again, the sea will never look the same after watching Jaws. Spielberg is at his absolute finest in this magical, yet suspenseful LEGENDARY monster flick. It is my belief that you’ll never EVER see a better film (let alone a monster film) than this.
