About the Movie

Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the way audiences experience movies. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Mr. Spielberg has so effectively spaced out the shocks that by the time we reach the spectacular final confrontation between the three men and the great white shark, we totally accept the makebelieve on its own foolishly entertaining terms. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Aug 22, 2014

Fresh: Spielberg works self-effacingly, with subtly correct camera placement and meticulous editing. He twists our guts with false alarms, giving us the real thing with heart-stopping suddenness. – TIME Magazine, Aug 22, 2014

Fresh: Perhaps the most perfectly constructed horror story in our time. – Arthur Knight, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 6, 2015

Fresh: A near Hitchcockian exercise in transference of guilt and making the audience pay for its illicit pleasures. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jul 29, 2013
