Duration: 2 hr, 4 min
Comments: A New York policeman moves to the small New England town of Amity. As chief of police he's hoping to enjoy a quieter life "where he can make a difference." This committment is called into question when a Great White shark claims the waters around Amity as its own, and feasts on local swimmers.
Everyone knows the distinctive shark theme in this film. But, the story and characters are excellent, too. It was filmed off Martha's Vineyard, which was unusual.
I haven't seen this film for decades, and I don't regret purchasing a DVD copy! If you haven't seen it, you really have to! The film is based on a popular novel.
