So, in 1982, Film Ventures International released the mother of all Italian Sharksploitation flick's, Great White, or The Last Shark if you have seen the DVD. The film is about a 35 foot Great White shark invading the town of South Bay (Set in Savannah, Georgia). From there on, it's pretty much like Jaws, Mayor doesn't want to close the beaches, swimmers go in the water and the shark gets them.

The Film itself is very good! The shark is my favorite part of 'The Last Shark', it looks MUCH better than the CGI Sharks we see in todays movies. The shark doesn't have much screen time but when it does, it's never boring! Plus, the shark roars everytime it surfaces.

The music is another great part of this film. In the US, the score was composed by Morton Stevens, his score is not features on the DVD, only in the US theatrical version. The score on the DVD, is by the De Angelis brothers who never fail to make a great score. The opening song, Hollywood Big Time, is also very well done as well.

Overall, I'd give the film a 9/10. I don't see why people hate this film. Sure it has some similarities to Jaws and Jaws 2, but it is much more original than anything we have seen today. Plus, the film has a better looking shark than Jaws 2, 3-D, and The Revenge. If you like Jaws, you gotta see this film, it really is amazing!

What can I say? It's Jaws. Exact same concept, same plot structure, essentially the same characters. They sort of combined Brody and Hooper into one character, but there's a Quint character who even looks like Robert Shaw, a Larry Vaughn character, and an Ellen Brody character. The specifics of the various shark attacks are different, but it doesn't matter. If you've seen Jaws, there are no surprises here. That said... I have to admit I actually enjoyed it. It can't compare to Spielberg's version, but it's a solid telling of the Jaws story. Not outstanding, mind you, but competent. The director kept the pace moving, so it never got dull. No lengthy talking scenes to fill out the running time here, as you'll often find in B-movies. This film is always moving forward, advancing the plot and providing an adequate amount of action -- though admittedly, they didn't have to work very hard to accomplish this, since they were just following the plotline of Jaws to the letter. The mechanical shark looks pretty good, and to the film's credit, they kept footage of it to a minimum, relying mostly on footage of real sharks, which integrates well with the footage of the mechanical shark. James Franciscus and Vic Morrow turn in acceptable performances, and there are actually some pretty cool death scenes. All things considered, a fairly entertaining film -- if you can get past the fact that it's essentially an illegitimate remake of Jaws. If you're a total Jaws fanatic, it's probably worth checking out.

If you love drive-in/cult classics you'll love this movie! A direct rip-off of Jaws you have a big shark attacking a resort during the annual regata. It pairs well as a double feature with movies such as Tentacles.

As noted above, this is a burned-on-demand DVD-R, not a mastered DVD.

The image quality is actually amazing. Sharp, clean, excellent color, letterboxed. The audio is another story. A lot of the dialogue is at low volume and is hard to understand, and drowned out further by the much louder music and sound effects. A disappointment, especially considering the surprising video quality, but the film is still watchable (listenable?)

There are 9 chapter stops, but no menu (the movie just starts playing when you pop in the disc), no subtitles (a shame, considering the audio issue), no extras.

I've been assembling a collection of shark-movies, and this was one of the remaining trophies I was lacking. I love cheesy 70's and early 80's monster movies.....anything prior to CGI goofiness....and this film satisfies my "rubber monster head" desire. I actually wish there was more of the monsterous shark's head and upper body, that rises out of the water. I could have done without all the stock footage of sharks, that are supposed to be the creature of the title, but are clearly different species and sizes of other sharks. Despite this, it was just what I wanted to see, so my four star review should be used as a guide only if you like bad monster movies. If you like quality monster movies, such as the excellent Jaws, then this is a one star movie. If you know what I'm talking about, then you'll know whether to buy this or not.....

Anyone, I mean ANYONE who could actually claim (Great White or Last Shark)to be a good film has ingested an unusually high amount of drugs.

Simply put, this is a pitiful ripoff of lousy quality. The acting is terrible and the "effects" bottom of the barrel. Some of the reviews on here are delusional. Some guy said it was better than the CGI-loaded films of today. Well, while CGI can be annoying, how could you say stock footage of a shark swimming around maybe half the size of the mechanized piece of crap they use looked good? I think the water changes colors about 5 times during the film.

Damn, even the women are hideous and flat-chested! Can't have that in a shark movie!

Man, the shame of anyone involved with this film must've been huge. The deaths are comical, and the opening of some muscle-bound douche wind surfing for what seems like an eternity is among the worst in cinematic history.

This is terrible people! Hard to believe Universal sued the makers of this crapfest because it would've died an appropriately quick death from word of mouth.

That being said, it was hilariously awful at times and well worth watching for that reason and that reason alone. The transfer to DVD was more than acceptable as well shockingly. The audio sucks, but that's the way it was shot. I have to admit, I always wondered how bad this film was and now I know-it's worse than Bea Arthur in the nude!
