        Wait! So we are supposed to believe that the shark went after the family for revenge? That is the worst plot ever, The acting in Jaws 3 was horrible but this is somehow even worse, Lorraine Gary tries to go all Ripley and fails miserably, The shark looked ok in places, But it felt more of a spoof than a sequel, It's not scary it's not fun and the ending was poorly done, Easily the worst if the Jaws films and could be a contender for worst film ever, Let's just be thankful it didn't kill Michael Caines career.

        It's a Christmas miracle! The great white shark comes after the Brodys for Christmas in Jaws: The Revenge, and this time it's personal. When her youngest son is killed by a shark Ellen Brody decides to leave Amity and spend the holidays with her elder son's family in the Bahamas, but her psychic link to the shark draws him there before long; and he proceeds to stalk after her and her son. The plot is ridiculous and Lorraine Gray is terrible (but part of this is the writing). However, Lance Guest delivers a strong performance, and Michael Caine brings a nice levity to the film. Also, the shark effects aren't that bad, though there's no real menace or sense of terror to him (as he's really only after the Brodys and whoever gets in the way). For a B-horror movie, Jaws: The Revenge is alright and a slight step up from part 3; but it's not good and an absolute travesty compared to the original.

        "Jaws: The Revenge" is a terrible movie and definitely the worst "Jaws" sequel. The acting in this movie is bad, the only good actor is "Michael Caine". The plot to "Jaws: The Revenge" is that a shark wants to get revenge on the "Brody" family for all the other sharks that were killed. The plot is the worst plot to a movie I have ever seen. "Jaws: The Revenge" has terrible horror shots of people being murdered by the shark. The music in this movie is terrible, there is no music in the film that fits in with any of the scenes. Finally this movie is no boring there are no entertaining scenes at all. I highly recommend you DO NOT watch "Jaws: The Revenge" as it is a horrible film. So I give "Jaws: The Revenge" a 0.5/10.
