Shark rises out of the water.
The JuRK
Now, I'm sorry, there's a lot of things I'm willing to accept in movies - but that's just a step too far into "stupid" for me.
The Curmudgeon
This is by far the worst Jaws movie of the franchise and is possibly one of the worst movies ever made.

I just saw the end of JAWS: THE REVENGE again on latenight cable TV--where it belongs--and I'm still stunned by the incredible lameness of every aspect of this movie. For everyone who quibbles about the unlikelihood of finding a Great White in the warm waters of the Bahamas: this shark also roars. Like a lion or something. A roaring shark. You read that right.

The filmmakers also keep cutting shots from the original JAWS into the climax. As a reminder that there was actually a good film at one time here? A distraction from how horrible this one is?

They paid Michael Caine enough to be in this stink bomb--but obviously not enough to wear a wet shirt after climbing out of the ocean. His expressions often convey that he's there but you're lucky he's at least facing the camera.

Was there something better he could have been doing? Yes. Picking up his first Oscar for HANNAH AND HER SISTERS. But he missed the Oscars to be in JAWS: THE REVENGE. At least he went on national TV to admit that he did this movie because he had a home right there in the Bahamas (he even pointed at the house during the interview).

The demise of the roaring shark is a baffling, badly-edited violation of all of our natural laws and logic. Shark rises out of the water. Boat rams shark. Shark explodes. Boat explodes. Everyone survives, even the annoying Jamaican who got chewed up several minutes before. Roll footage clearly the same of the blown-up shark sinking from the original.

Wow. It's that bad.

The tag line for this movie was "This time it's personal."

They were right.

That studio's really got it in for us!

Oh I do love reading Amazon reviews!!!! People who give this film more than one star really are having a joke, they surely cannot be serious.
The story is ridiculous...shark goes round coast of the US to get its revenge. I was half expecting it to get on the subway and go looking at one stage.
The acting is diabolical.
And to those of you who said the shark was realistic...are you drunk? Look at the film again, the mechanism under the mechanical shark is CLEARLY visible in many shots. Which again tells you how bad it is.
Really, if you thought this was good, I'd reexamine what films you go see.
Contender for the worst film of all time with Gigli. In fact so bad, I dont know why I bothered reviewing it AT ALL!

Well, there are already 79 1 stars reviews written for this thing so I dunno how much more I have to say, but there are a few significant points.

-'Jaws: The Revenge' is knockoff of 'Orca'. You just think about that for a while. This is disturbing for a variety of reasons, not the least of which being that 'Orca' was a knockoff of 'Jaws', and is also the stupidest movie ever made, with the possible exception of.... 'Jaws: The Revenge'.

-I first saw this movie when I was a little kid. I thought about it occasionally over the years reflecting on how at the end of the film the shark kinda floats on top of the water on his tail and is impaled on the mast, or whatever, of the ship. Eventually, after a number of years, I became convinced that I had imagined this. It was just too stupid to be real. No frickin' way. Then I saw this movie again a while back and sure enough the ending happened just as a remembered it. All this comes together to mean that the ending of this film is so stupid that it is literally beyond belief. That's somethin'

-The shark in this movie roars. Many others have mentioned this, but it bears repeating. This is another thing I'd forgotten. After being reminded of it today I nearly fell over laughing.

-Also, the shark is really, really amusing looking. His sides are all wiggly like he's made out of carpet or something and hasn't got a skeleton.

Grade: F

Jaws the Revenge is a complex story of a great white struggling with it's sexuality. Being opressed in his home town of Amity the shark decides to go on vacation to the Bahamas.....to me I always thought he should have gone to Fire Island but what do I know. There he meets an attractive dark man played by Mario Van Peebles and falls in love. But, to his dismay, Mrs. Brody shows up and decides that this romance is forbidden and that she must put a stop to it.....I don't want to ruin the ending but the poor Shark doesn't get to realize his dream of being on Project Runway.

Cheesy schlock that, like the other sequels, buys into the horror cliches that Spielberg so brilliantly subverted for the first movie (does not the scene in the origninal Jaws where a child and a dog get eaten by the monster in broad daylight at a crowded beach right in front of the hero break every horror movie rule?).
However, it did produce one great moment. When asked by an interviewer about this movie, Michael Caine said, "I have not seen the film, but I hear it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it paid for, and it is superb."

After a Great White shark kills her youngest son, the widowed Ellen Brody comes to the realization that the shark is after her and her loved ones. As ridiculous of this might sound, it turns out that she's right. The vengeful, grudge-holding fish follows the grieving woman along with her son, daugther-in-law and niece to the beautiful Bahamas, I guess to seek revenge? For what, you ask? I have no idea.

The scathing reviews this film has received from those who have watched it are justified because this film is unbearably bad. The film-makers thought that in order to make a "Jaws" sequel, the story must involve the Brody family. In "Jaws 2", Chief Brody battled another over-grown Great White and in "Jaws 3", the Brody sons battled an even bigger shark in Florida's Sea World. In "Jaws: The Revenge", the homicidal fish returns to torment the Brody's yet again. Talk about an unlucky family. What I do not understand is why is this shark after them? Didn't the shark die in the original film? Didn't the second shark die during the sequel's climax? Is this shark somehow related to the previous sharks; maybe a spouse or a sibling or a cousin? Maybe it wanted to avenge the murder of its relatives? Maybe "Bruce" was somehow resurrected and the scene ended up in the cutting room floor? *ScratchesHead* Help?

Another intriguing factor in "Jaws: The Revenge" is that the shark roars. Mighty "Bruce" roars just like the T-Rex in Jurassic park and if that wasn't enough, it can also jump out of the water and stand on its tail, kinda like Flipper. I was waiting for Michael Caine to throw it a Mackerel and ask it to do a back-flip. Speaking of Michael Caine, he gives the most annoying performance of his entire career.
