Jaws 2 (1978)

Police chief Brody must protect the citizens of Amity after a second monstrous shark begins terrorizing the waters.

Same island. Same police officer. Same mayor.

Same story all over again too, albeit with both slightly more and slightly less focus on family life, slightly loose ends what with Brody getting fired - and being a somewhat annoying element all through the movie, and not really getting redemption even in the end. There's also the matter of - if I'm not imagining this - a slightly less life-like shark.

Feels like they might've gotten carried away on the success of the former. Or maybe it was overrated. Maybe the weight of legend carried over to my impression of it too.

The beach life's nice and all here, but the threat level's just not the same this time around, with the grand reveal out by the cable junction rather than by the more populated turf close to home, and with no time for the family to actually unite at the end as they did with the last one (before the showdown though, then).

The problems all pile and then it's over. Did he get his job back? Is it OK now? It doesn't feel as conclusive as it did the last time at all.

Not that it ended at the shore there, but it felt inconclusive in a better way. Without loose ends. You really felt the victory of battle, and nothing more.

This one wasn't the one with the lab either... is there another? Hope to find that one next.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
