It is the second sequel to Steven Spielberg's Jawswhich was based on the novel by Peter Benchley and is the third installment in the Jaws franchise. The film is notable for making use of 3D film during the revived interest in the technology in the s, amongst other horror films such as Friday the 13th Part III and Amityville 3D. Cinema audiences could wear disposable cardboard polarized 3D glasses to create the illusion that elements penetrate the screen.
Several shots and sequences were designed to utilise the effect, such as the shark's destruction. A great white shark starts to follow an unsuspecting team of water skiers. The driver stalls the ski boat but manages to restart it before the shark can attack. The shark follows the water skiers into the SeaWorld park and throws the gate off its rails while it is closing.
Meanwhile, Florida announces the opening of SeaWorld's new glass covered underwater tunnels that allow close up views of the park's animals.
Kathryn "Kay" MorganSeaWorld's senior marine biologist, wonders why dolphins Cindy and Sandy are so afraid of leaving their dolphin pen. When Shelby Overman dives into the water to repair and secure the gates, he is killed by a shark. That night, two men in diving equipment sneak into the park in a small inflatable boat to steal coral they intend to sell.
Both are killed by the shark, which also bites and sinks the inflatable. The next day, Kay and Michael Brody are informed of Overman's disappearance.
They use a small submarine to search through SeaWorld's new tunnels before checking in an underwater Spanish Galleon fixture, despite dolphins Cindy and Sandy attempting to keep them out. As they search the Spanish Galleon they encounter a small great white shark. The dolphins rescue Kay and Mike. SeaWorld park manager Calvin Bouchard does not believe the shark story, although the news is exciting to his underwater film maker and photographer friend, Philip FitzRoycewho states his intention to kill the shark on network television.
Kay argues that killing the shark would be good for one headline, but capturing and keeping a great white shark in captivity would guarantee TV crews and money constantly rolling into SeaWorld.
The young shark is captured and Kay and her staff nurse it to health. Calvin, desperate to start the money rolling in immediately, prematurely orders it moved to a small tank for exhibit, where the young shark soon dies. At the underwater tunnels, a girl is terrified when she sees part of Overman's corpse float up to a window. Examining the bite marks on Overman's corpse, Kay realizes that the shark that killed him must be the small shark's mother, and that since Overman was killed inside the park, the mother shark must also be inside the park.
Based on the shape of the bite, Kay concludes that the shark's mouth must be about three feet wide and thus the shark about 35 feet long. This captures the attention of FitzRoyce, but she cannot convince Calvin until the enormous shark shows herself at the window of the park's underwater cafe, terrifying the customers. Flushed out from her refuge inside the filtration pipe, where fast moving water flowed across her gills, the shark wreaks havoc throughout the park.The film follows the Brody children from the previous films at an aquatic park in Florida with underwater tunnels and lagoons.
As the park prepares for opening, a young great white shark infiltrates the park from the sea, seemingly attacking and killing the park's employees. Once the shark is captured, however, it becomes apparent that a second, much larger shark that also entered the park was the real culprit. The film made use of 3D during the revived interest in the technology in the s, amongst other horror films such as Friday the 13th Part III and Amityville 3-D.
Cinema audiences could wear disposable cardboard polarized 3D glasses to create the illusion that elements penetrate the screen. Since 3D was ineffective in home viewing until the advent of 3D televisions in the late s, [ citation needed ] the alternative title Jaws III is used for television broadcasts and home media.
A fourth film, Jaws: The Revengefollowed in While following an unsuspecting team of water skiers, a great white shark enters an aquatic park through its closing gates. Meanwhile, Florida announces the opening of the park's new underwater tunnels.
Kathryn "Kay" Morgan, the park's senior marine biologist, and her assistants notice that the resident dolphins are afraid of leaving their pen. Shelby Overman, a mechanic, dives into the water to repair and secure the gates. He is attacked by the shark and killed, leaving only his severed right arm. Later that night, two men sneak into the park and go underwater to steal coral they intend to sellbut both are killed by the shark in the process.
The next day, Kay and Michael Brody are informed of Overman's disappearance. They go down in a submarine to look for his body, and during the search, they encounter a smaller shark. The dolphins rescue Kay and Mike, first by warning them of the shark but getting misunderstood, then by giving them a ride back to the dolphin pen at a speed the shark can't match, but the shark escapes back into the park.
They inform Calvin Bouchard, the park manager, and it excites his hunter friend, Phillip FitzRoyce, who states his intention to kill the shark on network television. Kay protests and suggests capturing and keeping the shark alive in captivity, to guarantee more publicity for the park. The shark is successfully captured, and Kay and her staff nurse it to health.
During this time, the shark does not even try to attack her. Calvin, desperate to start the money rolling in immediately, orders it moved to an exhibit, despite the fact they were to wait for Kay's blessing to do this.
When she hears of it, she runs to the tank and tries to save the baby shark, but the shark dies in her arms anyway.
Jaws 3-D (1983) Discussion
Coldly, she gives FitzRoyce permission to photograph it. Later, Overman's corpse is discovered. FitzRoyce alone understands what she's saying but dismisses her as being silly, but she persists, arguing that her shark was just the baby. She is able to convince Calvin about this newest development only when the shark herself shows up at the window of the underwater cafe.
Flushed out from her refuge inside a filtration pipe, the shark begins to wreak havoc on the park, injures a water skier, and causes a leak that nearly drowns everyone in the underwater tunnel. FitzRoyce and his assistant, Jack, go down to the filtration pipe in an attempt to lure the shark back in as a trap.Danny was a nickname for the baby shark from Jaws 3-D.
Michael Brody and Kay encountered it during their search for Shelby Overman in the lagoon where it attacked Michael and Kay, though the two fortunately escaped unharmed with the help of the resident dolphins. They informed SeaWorld's park manager Calvin Bouchard of the shark's presence, but he does not believe them, although the news is exciting to his underwater film maker and photographer friend, Phillip FitzRoyce, who states his intention to kill the shark on network television.
Kay was able to convince Bouchard that capturing and keeping the great white shark in captivity would guarantee TV crews and money constantly rolling into SeaWorld.
After gaining permission from Bouchard, Danny was captured and placed it in Sea World's nursing tank to nurse it back to health. Calvin, desperate to start the money rolling in immediately, prematurely orders it moved to a small tank for exhibit without Kay's permission. Kay and Michael rushed to help Danny as the crowds watch, but despite their efforts, Danny eventually succumbed to the stress of exposure and died moments later. Danny's mother, Brucettawho roughly measures 35 feet revealed herself and began to exact her revenge by attacking SeaWorld's underwater tunnel and causing water to leak into the underwater tunnel, trapping everyone.

Valenka Ivana Milicevic — Casino Royale. This little minx worked for LeChiffre and almost took Bond out by poisoning his favorite drink! She got closer to killing him than just about everyone else on this list but we knew too little of her to actually give her the credit.
Patrice Ola Rapace — Skyfall. The Daniel Craig Bond films have yet to have a single, memorable henchman. This one from Skyfall ranks above the other two only because he actually posed a physical threat to Bond. Gobinda scores a few points for getting some racial diversity into the ranks of Bond henchmen but his angry stares and knack for crushing dice with his bare hands hardly rank him as one of the best. Benicio del Toro as a Bond henchman?! This henchman is a case of appearances not matching deeds.
Not exactly fear-inducing. Do you think he realizes you can kill people outside of the bedroom? Yet another blonde stud muffin with pecs for days. This one wins out for his exploding milk bottles and Walkman strangulation method.
Why waste a good plane when you already had Bond tied up? She unfortunately deserved that dip in the piranha pool. Anytime Zao speaks he loses major, major points BUT Rick Yune was kind of a dreamboat and having diamonds impacted in his face is the kind of ridiculously fun thing that can make a Bond henchman truly memorable even if it is totally silly. Kidd is set aflame while Mr. Wint is blown up with a bomb tied between his legs.
Can we just stop and reflect for a moment how cool it is that the producers of the Bond series were totally fine throwing in a gay couple as assassins all the way back in ?

Written by Medica2. I had avoided seeing this film for fifteen years because of it's bad reputation and because I love the first Jaws as one of the greatest movies ever made. Having survived the horror of "Jaws: The Revenge" once, I decided to see if I could brave this one, though.
About the only thing that surprised me was that the premise wasn't quite as dumb as "Jaws: The Revenge" is.
And while there is a reference to the events of "Jaws 2" at least they don't insult our intelligence with a shark pursuing one family etc. The FX are cheap and terrible and too often it's hard to figure out what's going on here. Scenes that could have been suspenseful with a competent director just plod along in a muddled fashion. In the end, Jaws 3 comes off more as a glorified made for TV type disaster movie with none of the high quality that elevates the original Jaws above such fare.

Company Credits.It could never reach the high level and effectiveness of the John Williams scores but it is a fantastic score on its own deserving a 5 star rating, with an incredible number of themes and motifs and some variations on the Jaws theme.
TV Producer Alan Landsburg made a lot of bad decisions while producing Jaws 3-D such as scraping the superior electronic composites from PSE and replacing them by hastily prepared poor optical effects and keeping in the movie some unfinished shots like in the underwater tunnel attack scene to meet its release datebut in the music department he did great by hiring composer Alan Parker no relation to the homonimous movie director and then calling back Parker alowing him to adapt and rerecord most of the score when the movie was extensively reedited before release.
The score was released on LP and tapes at the time of the film release in as a 35 min. More than 36 minutes of rescored music had to be completed by Parker in a very short 6-day period and these new versions generaly improved on the energy and exitement of the music compared to the original versions. First released on CD in by Intrada Records as straight reissue of the 35 min.
MCA LP program the complete score was finally released by Intrada Records in as part of their Jaws series releases that year, including all tracks that were recorded for the original cut of the film and for its reedited version, plus the source music, overlays and alternates recorded by Parker with a total time of min.
The Intrada Release is a fantastic release that I thought I would never see happening. Sound quality is great even if unfortunately, a few tracks present some damage due to the degradation of the tapes since its recording in According to the press release on the 2-CD edition the presentation opted to follow as closely as possible the film sequence, but that is not exactly precise and the main issue I have with this release is the sequencing.
In fact the main program at CD 1 includes tracks out of sequence, unused tracks and alternate versions while some of the actual film versions are at CD2 instead of CD1.
Before doing a track-by-track comment it is convenient to do a summary of the main themes and motifs used through the movie:. The theme is playful and happy but very flexible being also used in sad ominous tone during the score.
Interestingly its three-note refrain is similar to the three-note shark motif used in the film but altering the emphasis from the third to the second note. As the POV continue following the boat the shark theme plays underneath the ski theme and, in the end of the film version of the track, an insert with the shark theme plays as a shot shows the shark fin in the distance.
Interestingly the music does not include the shark theme for the shark POV approaching. The shark follows the skiers as they enter the Sea World lagoon through a sea gate. This track follows the shark fin moving until it hits the gate. Again, contrary to expectation, Parker does not use the shark theme in this scene. After inspecting the broken sea gate, park chief engineer Mike Brody Dennis Quaidthe eldest son of Sheriff Brody from the first two films, goes to meet his girlfriend Kay Bess Armstrong to inform that his brother Sean John Putch will arrive that afternoon and they will have dinner together.
In the first part of this track the Sea World theme plays as Kay is riding the whale. The second part of the track as of 45 seconds is dialed down in the movie and introduces the love theme for Kay and Mike as they talk while feeding the whale. This is a great track introducing two of the score main themes, unfortunately it is one of the tracks on which some deterioration can be perceived specially as of the 25 seconds mark when the strings and percussion show some flutter.
As he locks the gate the shark suddenly appears and eats him.
