Jaws: The Revenge (1987) Review:

What I really despise about Jaws 4 is that it completely ignored the events that happened in Part 3 and chronologically set itself up after Part 2. I can’t stand that in horror franchises, it’s extremely lazy writing! Another aspect of the film that was completely absurd lies within the idea that the great white is out seeking revenge against the Brody family. Lastly, it mentioned that Chief Martin Brody died earlier from a heart attack caused by a great white. What a joke! No wonder why this film is constantly bashed and often seen on worse movie lists. This loss falls squarely on the director and writers.

The only redeeming aspect of The Revenge was scoring Michael Caine to be in it and bringing back Lorraine Gary but let’s be honest the two of them couldn’t save this film. Half the budget for this movie had to go to Caine or he just wanted to vacation in the Bahamas, maybe both. It was odd too seeing these two great cast members having to try and sell these really cheesy bad lines. The beginning of the film had a surprising twist, which is respectable since it took some stones to pull off but it was way too rushed. From there, a lot of flashback scenes were inserted, with laughable dialog and crappy shark effect scenes. The Revenge was a really poor attempt to create a meaningful Jaws movie and solidify the series, it might have ruined it for good.
