Mini Retro Review: Jaws 3-D (1983) #badmovies

Jaws 3-D

Jaws 3-D is like a teen drama meets slasher type flick (& a needless sequel) as settings switch to Seaworld (of all places), which is a world away from the previous Jaws films, which were more suspenseful and serious in tone and alas, it resembles nothing like those movies. They got rid of everything that made the first film great, with the second being below adequate and instead, we have corny characters with a corny tone and corny & insipid melodrama and cheesy overacting. There are some terrible non-American accents that I've heard and a woeful and dreary script that makes a mockery of the Jaws reputation that it has so built up, but has been decimated completely by this travesty. The opening is like something out of Baywatch with the unlucky folks on water skis and then it descends into part - Free Wily. The so-called 3D special effects this film has been trudging out, are so unrealistic it's obvious with that photoshopped look to them (the black outline around the shark being one of them), but then this was the early 1980s with movie technology and CGI, which were still not quite on the level that is seen today. Talking about jump the shark, these characters deserve to be eaten up by one, & it seemed like this shark was having a whale of a time in doing so. 

Is It Worth Watching?

Just for a laugh
