For a sophomore film, Jaws manages to remain one of Spielberg’s absolute best, and in general, is just plain one of the best thrillers ever made. All three lead cast members are delightful and wonderful, and their chemistry is real. The shark, for how little we see it, leaves an impression that lingers through the entirety of the film. And yeah, the sharks are a little fake in that finale, but otherwise, damn what a finale! Jaws is an absolute classic.
