As the toothy fish series plays out its line, the plots of the JAWS movies become more and more ludicrous, embarrassingly so with this, the fourth and most dismal of the group. Police chief Brody (Roy Scheider, who wisely opted to escape this endless saga) has been eliminated from the New

England town of Amity, so his wife, the long-suffering Ellen (Lorraine Gary), has taken over the lead. One of her sons, Sean (Mitchell Anderson), has become the police chief. He is vexed by a terrorizing shark during the Christmas season, then killed by it. Ellen, to escape the horror of her

family's shark-infested history, travels to the Bahamas to visit her surviving son, Michael (Lance Guest), a marine biologist who spends most of his waking moments looking for rare sea snails with partner Jake (Mario Van Peebles). Sure enough, the very shark that attacked Sean, has followed Ellen

to the Bahamas and is out to kill her second son, all in the name of vengeance for the killing of its supposed relatives in prior JAWS films. Oh yes, Ellen falls in love with easy-living Hoagie (Michael Caine), who concludes that the shark will not give up attacking her second son unless she

brings a halt to the vendetta by sacrificing herself. Even the special effects are lame in this one, offering a latex shark that is about as realistic as a fake goldfish. Poorly directed by Joseph Sargent, who relies heavily on blood and fast editing to create tension since there certainly isn't

any written into the script.
