With great sucess, the Jaws movies introduced this classic in 1983. This one takes place in Sea World in Florida. The underwater tunnels and families visiting for the summer makes this movie even more horrifying. The park has skiers that are a big favorite with the visitors. When the skiers are attached, the owners of the park know they have something going on. Anxious to capture the "big fish" and not induce a panic, they set their traps in motion.
The first fish is captured and to much dismay, it is the baby and the mother is waiting nearby. This blood thirsty great white shark has several more close instances including an attack of people on bumper boats.
Dennis Quaid plays Michael Brody and he is determined to get this fish. When he sends divers down for a routine dive and they come back with horrifying news, he knows it is time for him to take matters into his own hands. Together with the help of the Sea World park manager, Calvin Bouchard Louis Gossett, Jr.), they know they have to catch this great white or their park is in danger.
The graphics in this movie given the fact that it is 3D send it over the top. The original theater audience got to enjoy scenes that had the great white heading straight for them. In 1983, this was a pretty new concept and even given the advances that would later be made in this arena, Jaws 3-D was a ground breaking movie on many levels.
After the shark crashes the underwater tunnel system and frightens many families, she has to go. The divers end up putting a grande in her mouth, pulling the pin and swimming like crazy to get away. The plan goes off without a hitch and the park is once again safe. This movie captured its audiences and left them wanting more of the Jaws saga.
