JT7201’s review published on Letterboxd:
Must've seen the opening 20 minutes or so of this multiple times and never cared for it. Just about sums up me views: I don't particularly care about what's happening on the screen.
Sure there is some good stuff. The shark prop is pretty convincing, I enjoy the performances of the three leads, John Williams is on form and I was gripped by the final confrontation with the shark. However, I just didn't become invested in this film. I just did not care what happened to the characters and couldn't care less about the hunt for the shark. I didn't hate it or even dislike it. My feelings ranged from mildly entertained to outright indifference.
