What is the movie Jaws about?
The film that made Steven Spielberg a household name, “Jaws” was an enormous commercial success and became one of the best known films in the history of cinema. The story unfolds on a fictional summer resort Amity Island, where a young woman goes missing after skinny dipping. Her body is later found on the beach by a deputy chief of police. The medical examiner informs police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) that the girl was eaten by a shark. Brody wants to close the beaches for safety reasons, but it’s the middle of the tourist season and the mayor is worried that closing the beaches would do grave damage to Amity Island’s main source of income. After another boy dies the whole Island goes into a panicked frenzy, with amateur shark hunters swarming in to try the catch the predator. A tiger shark is caught, leading people to believe that the danger has passed, but the contents of its stomach show no human remains. A local fisherman is found dead, but the mayor still refuses to close the beaches. Fourth of July brings many tourists to Amity Island, and Brody, a marine biologist and a shark hunter set out to hunt the true killer shark. On the open sea the shark circles their boat, revealing it’s gargantuan measures to the disbelieving three-man crew. The pursuit lasts all night long, with the shark appearing only to do some damage to the boat then swimming away. Tomorrow morning the trio makes a decisive effort to eliminate the gigantic predator, but the shark proves itself to be even harder to kill than it first appeared. In the end, Brody manages to kill the shark by shoving a scuba tank into the shark’s mouth and then shooting at it to make it explode.

“Jaws” is the film I grew up with, it is like the first real horror film I ever watched. This movie not only scarred me out of the water, I was afraid to go to the bathroom! I thought “Jaws” was going to pop up out of the toilet and bite my butt! :D It was indeed silly, but that was how much “Jaws” affected me. The effect is not lost in the present days as well.)) The movie is based on the bestseller by Peter Benchley and Steven Spielberg, before becoming a famous film director, has turned this book into a great horror movie and a reason to hate all the sharks. The music used in the movie just scares the heck out of me. “Jaws” is one of my favorite films of all time.

Hmm, after finishing reading the book “Jaws” i stayed with the thought that i have never read anything like that before in my life, it was very creepy and at the same time very captivating! Jaws has shown a little city that was attacked by a huge white shark that was killing people and there was only one police officer who fought the local authorities and asked to close the local beach but no one paid attention to him due to the fact that money from those tourists were the only source of living for the locals. This way the population of this little town has significantly decreased, and that was the real tragedy of the story. It was very interesting to watch the movie! But i suggest doing both of the things to read the book and to watch the movies, especially if watching it after the book, this way you will get the chance to compare the characters with the images that you created in your mind.

I read the book which i found due to some accident, and thank God i did, because i love it a lot! Due to the fact i love everything that has to do with the ocean and its creatures i decided to read it, and i had no idea about the things in the plot. After reading the book, i saw the movie and loved it even more than the book, and i can say that i already saw it probably not less than one hundred of times, although it is a old one, i should say that i liked it since the first part of it. Together with the main hero i was very worried for every hero who had to suffer because of the shark!
And due to the fact that everything looked so real, and i (who had a clue about how smart the sharks really are, they are many times smarter than people) was perfectly aware of how dangerous and hard the situation was for the people.I think i have never felt such a captivity as i felt during watching this movie, although i cannot say that i am one of those girls who watch the soap operas and cry upon each touchy love scene. I think people who love thrillers should see it!

I watched the movie one time, and i can say that i was very impressed by it! Although it was filmed a long time ago, i can say that it seemed to be very real, and i kept jumping off my couch from fear in some moments of the movie. So as soon as i saw it the first time, i decided to find the book on which it was based and read it. I can say that it was a totally different feeling from the book read, as it was much easier for me to imagine everything. The plot of the movie is captivating, but i think that the shark has been made too intelligent, after watching the movie i got the idea that it was much smarter than those poor people.
Also in the subject were twisted the personal relations between the heroes who tried to win the battle with death which was following them with huge jaws. I think there were too much deaths and creepy scenes, but anyway it is one of my favorite movies, and i totally loved it! No matter how old this movie gets, it still doesn’t lose its charm, and is interesting to watch!
