Lorraine Gary returns in this fourth movie alongside Michael Caine, to bring the circle of movies back around to the beginning. Character development throughout these movies is a bit sketchy. The characters are afraid of the water and then they’re not, and then they are again.
Anyway, Michael is now in the Bahamas on a research grant, instead of an engineer at Sea World. While Martin and Michael have been the heroes of the past movies, I thoroughly believe Ellen is the savior of this one. This time it’s her that no one listens to.
There’s less death and destruction in this movie, and thus far this one is my favorite. Maybe I’m biased towards a female lead, or maybe its because I do like Michael Caine, or maybe it’s the “Little Mermaid-esque” ending to the shark.
