An ocean-themed Florida amusement park comes under attack from an angry Great White shark in this third installment of the horror series. The film maintains only a loose relationship to the original Steven Spielberg hit, centering on Mike (Dennis Quaid) and Sean (John Putch), the sons of police chief Martin Brody (originally played by Roy Scheider). Mike works at Sea World, where a baby Great White shark has accidentially been let into the park. Soon, the baby's vicious and extremely powerful mother comes in search of her child. The film focuses most of its attention on the series of tense shark attacks that follow, as tourists run for their lives while the park workers struggle to destroy the sharp-toothed beast. The suspense sequences were made somewhat more memorable during the film's original release with 3-D photography, an attribute lost on video, thereby removing the most distinctive element of an otherwise run-of-the-mill sequel.
If you are a fan of 3D movies and love a fun, campy, "horror" movie then this is the blu-ray to buy!
The 3D movie is an extra on the disc - which seems strange as its only marketed on the back of the cover as an extra and the quality of the 2D movie is not very good. The main 2D feature quality is extremely grainy. The real 3D is a treat to behold! It's real 3D and not blue and red lenses in cardboard.
The main titles alone appeared to stretch across my living room and several scenes have gags that appear to come so far out of the TV that it almost makes you cross-eyed ,
The move is not as good as the original or 2nd one. It is campy and fun though to watch.
I can remember wasting an entire summer watching this movie every day with a friend. Jaws 3 holds special memories for me. The story is laughable and just an excuse for over the top 3-D effects, but it's a good kind of cheese. Louis Gossett Jr. and Dennis Quaid turn in pretty good performances, despite the story. The Blu-Ray has a bonus feature of the movie in 3-D!! Worth it!
I will say this film doesn't even come close to the first two films! This movie had a great plot, but the horrible acting and very fake special effects didn't help make the film as great as it should have been. I will say the positive aspect of this movie is it still is very entertaining, and I would watch it again. It is just a shame they didn't put more effort into this film that had such a promising plot, but it had such bad aspects that didn't help it. If you are a fan of the original two films, see it, but don't expect anything nearly as great!
ok 3d...but needed to add it to my collection...you can really tell the age of the film after seeing it for the first time in many many years.
Still needed to add it to the 3D library...now waiting for a true 3d Blu Ray release of Friday the 13th 3 in 3-D!!!
Having Jaws 3 in the collection and also having it rendered and it's original format, is outstanding. I used to have this on VHS and now I have it on DVD. It is a simple and straightforward survival thriller. A must watch is Jaws 3. if you're into this type of movie. Go out and get it.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
3D hurts the movie
I loved the cast in this one, but it was originally shown in 3D and sometimes looks cheesy in standard def. A special feature says that you can watch the movie in 3D, but I don't have a 3D TV, 3D Blu Ray player and 3D glasses.
This movie was originally shot in 3D for use with the blue/red glasses of yesteryear, it would have been nice if they digitally made this into a bluray 3D flick. Otherwise, your standard horror flick with a shark on the loose and taking unsuspecting victims at will.
Jaws 3 is good, but jaws 1 and Jaws 2 are the ones we like the best.
We are movie buffs and collectors. We always complete a series of
movies. I must say though 9.99 for a bluray movie is always worth it.
