Jaws 4: The Revenge (1987)

Duration 1h 29m Rating (UK) 12
Source of story Very loosely based on some aspects of the previous Jaws films, and involving some characters.
Writers/Script Michael De Guzman
Additional Info Jaws was originally a book by Peter Benchley. The film is well known for having inspired a quote by Michael Caine who said that he had never seen the film but he had seen the wonderful house his fee had built and it was terrific.
Director Joseph Sargent
Starring Lorraine Gary, Mario Van Peebles, Michael Caine,
Elevator Pitch When one of the sons of Ellen Brody, the widow of former sherrif of Amity is killed by a shark she tries to ban the other son from his work as a marine biologist. He refuses and continues to work on a project in the Bahamas. The family follow him there and so does the shark where confrontations take place.
Content There is a bit of romancing between the widow and a local pilot. Much time spent under water as the shark menaces people on the surface and swimming. Some blood as people are eaten, but nothing else to cause offence I don’t think.
A View One of the films to get 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, but you might want to see it to complete the set so to speak. Actually I quite liked the obviously mechanical sharks, but that’s not a good enough reason to watch it so if you are not a “Jaws” franchise fan give it a miss.
