Absolutely excellent. That music makes this movie even more scarier. Thanks to this I don't want to get back in the water fearing a shark is attempting to murder me.

Terrifyingly perfect, I never felt such a personal and fear driven experience through film, leaving me afraid of water. An example of film outdoing the novel counterpart

A great movie

The story is fairly simple, it's about a killer shark, which has been copied 1500 times, but since it's the original and that's why it get extra points.

The caracters are highly likable and are well written, and i am happy to see a "'nerdy" type of caracter that's not a stereotype that annoys me everytime.

The shark looks great for 1975

The final scene when the shark is blown up by Roy Schneider is my personal favorite of all the scenes

Overall its one of my favorite movies, just classic

The best. I couldn't go in the water for years afterwards. Now that it no longer scares me I appreciate the acting, dialogue and humor.

One of THE best movies of all time. Compelling characters, brisk pacing and one of the most memorable movie monsters ever.

This is an excellent classic film that knows how to utilize music and camera angles for suspense. You are thrust into a believable world in a small town that thrives from the tourism that generates a large portion of their annual revenue for taxes and the like. As you are drawn in further to this almost murder mystery story (where you know it's at least a shark), you are primarily propelled from the humans' point of view. The story manages to stay interesting throughout while introducing varied and interesting characters as well, all while centered around the idea that man's greatest fear may come from where we don't belong. The ocean. That isn't to say that this story doesn't play upon old fears as it is from a time long ago, but the story is still interesting enough (and hopefully most are educated enough about its inaccuracies at this point) that it is a fun and scary time with a creature that could exist, but probably (hopefully) doesn't. Highly recommend and will continue to watch this right before Shark Week each year to see how things could be and compare to how they should be (mostly). Looking at you Discovery/Animal Planet to stop drumming up Killer Shark garbage in one or two of your segments every year.

Excellent film. Tense and gripping from start to finish, this is an excellent film about a terrifying (albeit unrealistic) monster. Great acting performances and the film holds up very well to present day. Even the awful fake shark fails to take you out of this film. It's a classic and I hate it for making me fear sharks in the middle of Indiana... but it is a great film regardless.

It was okay. There are only so many things you can do with shark movies. Some questionable directional choices made in the climax of the film.

Spielberg is not my favorite, but some of his films are. I praised the film for its acting (specifically Shaw), visual effects, plot and characters. The shark's design was acceptable, and its intelligence made the film entertaining.
