Faulty climax, but not even close to being as bad as critics say

RELEASED IN 1987 and directed by Joseph Sargent, "Jaws: The Revenge" (aka "Jaws 4") chronicles events when widowed Ellen Brody (Lorraine Gary) vacations in the Bahamas where her son, Michael (Lance Guest), lives and works. Meanwhile, a huge killing machine in the ocean has its eyes set on her & family. Mario Van Peebles plays Michael's associate while Karen Young plays his wife. Michael Caine appears as a small plane pilot who seems to be interested in Ellen.

There's been a critical feeding frenzy over this movie for decades, no pun intended. But it's really a decent nature-runs-amok creature feature laden by dubious filmmaking at the climax. There's a nice build-up and the material is taken seriously by the quality cast. Ellen's developing relationship with the amicable pilot is kinda heartwarming and both Guest & Van Peebles are effective male protagonists. Moreover, the switch to the Bahamas keeps things fresh after the first three movies.

Of course, the idea that a vengeful great white shark follows the Brody family to the Bahamas is absurd, but we've all heard of dogs or cats following a family hundreds of miles. This is just an imaginative stretch and we find Michael seriously wondering if that ridiculous premise could be true when just such a creature shows up. So the dramatic build-up is effective, not great, but certainly effective. Unfortunately, there's almost zero female eye candy despite the resort setting and, like I said, the climatic scenes are awkwardly done. It's like the creators really needed to reshoot some scenes and add others, but they lacked the funds so they tried to force the footage they had to "work" in the editing room.

The four Jaws movies detract in quality chronologically, but "The Revenge" is still worthwhile if you enjoyed the first three, just disregard the closing sequences. Beyond that glaring weakness, it's not even close to being as bad as people criticize.

THE FILM RUNS 1 hours & 29 minutes and was shot in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, and Bahamas, with studio work done at Universal City, California. WRITER: Michael De Guzman.

GRADE: C+

Michael Caine's worst hour.

Having read Michael Caine's biography I was intrigued to read of his views on this film, I had to watch it. I managed to get to the end, but found myself asking what could I have done with those ninety minutes? I'll never get them back. Throughout my Jaws reviews I've likened each one to a Shark, Jaws 1 is a Great white, proud, majestic with a huge bite. Jaws 2 is a Blue Shark, a lesser beast but still a meanie, 3 was a Basking shark, toothless, Jaws the Revenge is Bile, it's not even a shark, it is simply bile. The effects here make Jaws 3D look like a stellar 21st century blockbuster, the shark looks like a rubber monster from a Pound Shop, the acting is atrocious, Caine himself is shocking.

By now I think all behavioural aspects of a shark have vanished, this thing in the sea is not of any known life form. A shark with a vendetta is quite funny I guess, the stylish terror of the first has vanished. Simply put this should not be watched under any circumstances, and yet it was a relative box office hit. Wonders will never cease, avoid. 1/10

Just When You Thought it Was Safe to Watch Another Jaws Movie...

Like so many others, I watched--and loved--the original Jaws. I managed not to think too badly about Jaws 2, and I thought Jaws 3D was a very well-done self-parody of the franchise.

What can I say about this turkey? I can only imagine Lorraine Gary asking, "Who do I have to sleep with to get OUT of this piece of garbage?" There are some roles that are feathers in an actor's cap; not only is this not one of them, it is actually a stain left on the baseball cap by some large and incontinent seagull.

The best thing I can say about this ridiculous waste of celluloid is the the whole cast must have been in this piece of garbage as a result of losing several large bets.

Is this a spoiler? I don't think so, because all I'm trying to do is to keep you from wasting an unrecoverable hour and a half of your lives.

IN SHORT: it deserves a PG rating: Pure Garbage
