Review: A Great White Shark terrorizes the beach community of Amity Island. The police chief (Roy Scheider), a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss), and a salty shark fisherman (Robert Shaw) take to the scary seas aboard the Orca to hunt down the killer shark. This cinematic masterpiece has kept people out of the water for over 4 decades. The writing, directing, acting, and suspense are top-notch, but this man versus nature story is elevated to perfection thanks to John Williams' score and Verna Fields' editing, which won them Oscars. A true classic!

Stars (out of 4):

Fun Fact: The voice on Quint's marine radio, when Mrs. Brody tries to contact her husband on the "Orca", is that of director Steven Spielberg.
