Buckle your safety belts! All three performances (Scheider, Dreyfuss and Shaw) are excellent, as is the endlessly, imitated score. Steven Spielberg's first major hit, Jaws still scares the living daylights out of people. Plus, it's full of action and comic relief. Spielberg shows great restraint in his handling of the menace. We don't see the shark, except for bits and pieces (no pun intended) under water, for about an hour and twenty minutes into the movie. As a result, when the shark first appears on the screen, it made grown men scream. Definitely one of the best films of all time. Jaws also had some sequels, though what follows, lacks in comparison.
