Some of the things that shocked when I first saw it in the theatre are no longer as shocking given decades of increasingly gory movies. But, if the film's success only depended on a severed leg or the sudden appearance of a waterlogged corpse the movie would not hold up. It still works because of the strength of the three leads and the final third which details their search and confrontation with the great white. The fact that they couldn't get the mechanical shark to work, actually worked in Spielberg's favour since(as Hitchcock noted) what you can't see is often scarier than what you can see.(the opening sequence with the shark demonstrates this quite well) It's still exciting and was the first real blockbuster, taking in over a hundred million dollars at a time when tickets were about 3 bucks apiece.

Jaws is a near perfect film. A low budget creature feature that proved that anything could be art and that art could be popular. Andy Warhol wanted to make art for the people, but it took Spielberg to figure out how to do that. If you haven't seen jaws yet, just watch it. This review isn't going to tell you anything that the movie won't tell you better.

This special 25th anniversary collector's edition contains exclusive footage, interviews and behind-the-scenes materials.
It is a gripping and thrilling movie you would have to see at least once.

Wow this movie would really
make a lot of people scared
to go into the ocean. Every time
before the shark would attack
I was thinking that shark is at
it again! this movie was scary.

A thrilling movie a bit of jump scares in it but other than that it was good.

"JAWS" works best when watched in a crowd. Despite the mechanical shark and some of the overacting: This movie still holds up. This was the FIRST "Summer Blockbuster" movie — two years before "STAR WARS". Most of the time the shark is unseen — making the suspense of this movie more like Hitchcock: It's not what you see — it's what you don't see. And the "GOTCHA!"s still get ya. HA! (Also good for wallpaper.)

"And so--- 1100 men went in to the water. 316 came out. The sharks took the rest. June the 29th, 1945. But we delivered the Bomb."
