There will never be another movie like it. A true classic.

A memorable film that for it's time was just amazing and is the best horror ever made! Who can take a fish and scare people and make them throw up in the theater and still like it? Spielberg!

Variety
Robert Shaw [is] absolutely magnificent as a coarse fisherman finally hired to locate the Great White Shark; and Richard Dreyfuss, in another excellent characterization as a likeable young scientist. Full Review

Chicago Reader
Steven Spielberg's mechanical thriller is guaranteed to make you scream on schedule (John Williams's score even has the audience reactions programmed into the melodies), particularly if your tolerance for weak motivation and other minor inconsistencies is high. Full Review

Chicago Tribune
What this movie is about, and where it succeeds best, is the primordial level of fear. The characters, for the most part, and the non-fish elements in the story, are comparatively weak and not believable. [20 June 1975] Full Review

The first is the best. When it comes to this kind of thriller, no movie has been able to top Jaws, although many have tried. And, as the years go by, it seems increasingly unlikely that anything will come close. Full Review

Chicago Sun-Times
One of the most effective thrillers ever made. Full Review
