Jaws is an all time CLASSIC that I can actually say I have mixed emotions about, why? I like the concept of the film, but I also am terrified of sharks so I feared to watch this film. Jaws is a 1975 America thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley's 1974 Novel. During a late night beach party on Amity Island, a young woman (Chrissie Warkins) goes swimming in the ocean. While swimming out near a buoy, she is seized by something below, it thrash and dragged her under the ocean. Chrissie was then reported missing, and her remains were later found on the beach by the chief of police, Martin Brody. The medical informs Brody that Chrissie was killed by a shark, Brody planned to shut down the beach but the mayor overruled because he feared that reports of a shark sighting/attack may ruin the summer tourists season. Brody's son Michael, Quint, and Hooper were sent out to kill the shark (Jaws). In the morning Brody called the U.S. coast guard, but Quint destroys the radio enraging Brody. After a long chase Quint harpoons two more barbels to the shark (Jaws), but the shark ends up dragging the boat backwards forcing water onto the deck, which caused the engine to flood. Hooper enters the ocean in a shark proof cage to inject the shark with a spear. When the shark (Jaws) becomes entangled in the wrecked cage and tries to attack again, Brody shoves a scuba tank into its mouth then takes Quints riffle and shoots the tank causing it to explode into pieces, and destroys the shark (Jaws). After this film was created Jaws became a sensation, this film became so popular and the name Jaws as well, but I will always have fear because of this movie, the graphics of this film weren't great due to technology back then, but still provokes me to fear sharks.
