Seventies blockbuster movie, directed by Steven Spielberg. A large man-eating shark wreaks havoc off the coast of Long Island whilst local sheriff Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) finds himself caught between a panicking community and a town council eager to play down the reported deaths. However, the mounting bodycount cannot be ignored, so Brody heads off on a shark hunt, accompanied by marine biologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and salty old sea-dog Quint (Robert Shaw). John Williams won an Oscar for his menacing score.
From the manufacturer
Following the first shark attack on Amity Island, Police Chief Martin Brody is trapped between his pledge to protect the people by shutting down the beaches, and political pressure to protect tourist dollars. As the shark’s body count rises, Brody must face his greatest fear to eliminate the ruthless predator once and for all.
A marine biologist from the Oceanographic Institute, Matt Hooper arrives at Amity Island to help track the rogue shark. Hooper has been fascinated with studying sharks his entire life, but once he joins the hunt with Brody and Quint, he finally comes face to face with the true terror that dwells beneath the surface.
Despite Police Chief Brody’s warnings of a killer shark, Mayor Larry Vaughn still refuses to close the beaches and lose the revenue of tourist dollars during the island’s high season. Only after the shark attack on Independence Day does the mayor finally realize that by trying to save the town’s economy, he has put all of its citizens in terrible danger.
After surviving in shark-infested waters following the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis, Quint acquired first-hand knowledge of the predators that made him the most respected shark hunter in the area. Quint helms the expedition to destroy the killer shark, but soon discovers a monster even deadlier than the nightmares of his past.

I liked this film for it's clever variations of "man-eater on the rampage". All the actors did well although the Dreyfuss and Shaw characters are probably the most memorable. All in all this was a good screen play that allowed the actors to have fun and do a good job.
Probably unsuited to those with kids under 10 but really nothing extraordinary in on-screen violence. The decision to see the scenes from the bystanders point of view (generally) is a good one: it's both as I expect it would look, as well as not becoming splatter.
