  1. Tiago José Mateus Cardoso's rating of the film Jaws

  2. Semaj Productions's rating of the film Jaws

    Spielberg can direct tension as well as any of the great horror directors, and I think people lose sight of that. Not a perfect movie, but one that does an effective job keeping you on the edge of your seat. Fun to experience with friends and popcorn.

  3. Daniel Lubitsky's rating of the film Jaws

    Another film that spawned a new genre, Jaws started two extremely influential things, The blockbuster, and the shark movie. That being said, only one of those really matters, considering all shark movies are just copies of Jaws. However, the blockbuster is something that has impacted films over the years in a major way. If not for Jaws, Cinema would be very different now.

  4. Drew Gibbs's rating of the film Jaws

    Jaws is quite simply the advent of the summer blockbuster. What Spielberg managed to create with the budget and issues surrounding the film is nothing short of a masterpiece. Williams creates a fantastic score and the use of the shark is brilliant. This movie has caused many to stay out of the water...

  6. Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Jaws

    The shark and the story are silly, but the performances of Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss are worth watching.

  8. letters never sent's rating of the film Jaws

  9. MisterColo93's rating of the film Jaws

  10. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Jaws

    When that head came floating out of the boat the whole cinema was jumping up and shouting. For that memory alone 5 stars.

  11. Loz Loory's rating of the film Jaws

    So many, many phallic symbols. Robert Shaw is beyond incredible. The fake shark, less so. Best seen on the big screen.

  12. Bob's rating of the film Jaws

    A barrel scene that drags and occasionally inappropriate cheerful music are major flaws in otherwise greatest shark movie of all time. Main theme brings menace and hostility in every frame, making each scene powerful for the lifetime. Scheider, Dreyfuss and Shaw might be the greatest cinematic trio there ever was - the latter brings performance for cinema history. And the shark never looked so great before and after

  13. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Jaws

    CINEMA, restored, 2K Digital _ Rewatch on big (giant) screen and it might well be the best Spielberg of all. Young Steven is not yet saturating everything with over the top emotions and the last 30 minutes are just mind blowing. The music of John Williams and the flair of some rest of the New Hollywood will do the rest. Tourneur used to inspire the same fear with an almost invisible animal : very cinematic.

  14. BobbyTee's rating of the film Jaws

    Saw this too late I think!

  15. Ann Burden's rating of the film Jaws

  16. Levi Miah's rating of the film Jaws

    First viewing ever, and in a cinema! There's not enough appreciation for the comedy - this is a horror comedy. Its themes seem to have evolved in time, giving it a weird xenophobic POV (darkly, the xenophobics win). Williams includes some unfitting elements, and the foreground lighting is sometimes odd, but its cast, dialogue (first half is chaos, packed with background noise) and seasick visual compositions shine.

  17. Aulia Indry's rating of the film Jaws

    Cool but little bit pathetic bit still cool!!

  18. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Jaws

    3 stars for being decent, 4 stars for being an original icon of suspense

  19. Naomi Vargas's rating of the film Jaws

  20. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Jaws

    The timeless theme of 'man versus nature' taps into something incredibly primal. Like Moby Dick, the film's generic adventure story becomes a framework for more elemental interpretations specific to the notions of fear, obsession, masculinity, etc. Spielberg's direction owes much to the influence of Hitchcock, but it's the 'Fordian' elements of the script& the well-developed characters that create lasting substance.

  21. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Jaws

    A simple, yet timeless "evil shark" attacks people on the beach movie - a modern monster movie version of "Moby Dick" but with a shark instead of a white whale. The film started Spielberg's career as the major man of box office films and it was a deserved success helped by it's excellent casting of it's three male leads and John Williams epic soundtrack.

  22. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Jaws

  23. chanandre's rating of the film Jaws

    [Kino: DCP] (CinePop IV) Markl na fila da frente. Waited 13 years to see this film on a proper movie theater: it was Oh so worth the wait. Cinéphilia: that's the discipline. (review in progress...)

  24. Sam Kind's rating of the film Jaws

    One of my favorite movies about one of my favorite things; sharks! I could go on and on about this film, but to save for the amount of space we have, this film would be nothing without its editing. The shark worked for a total of ten minutes and the rest is just the use of shots from the point of view of the shark as well as stock footage and yet it still terrified 6 year old me and made my older self fall in love.
