Its always the third movie in a series that somehow goes off the rails a little bit. Jaws 3 is not in anyway tied to the book, apart from the fact that Mr. Brody’s children are back, but now Mike(Dennis Quaid) works as Sea World.
He’s not teaching Shamu to belly flop, he’s more security guard. Bess Armstrong, Lea Thompson, and Louis Gossett Jr round out the cast. Sean (John Putch) also turns up for a visit. But he’s not the only visitor to Sea World.
Momma and baby shark swim into the park and while baby is captured, Momma continues to wreck havoc on the newly opened Sea World. Louis runs the park, but isn’t as ignorant as the mayor was from the last two JAWS movies, so there is less death, but much more destruction.
This movie did not get great reviews, and while the special effects could have been better, the plot wasn’t bad. However, this plot line could have stood on it’s own, but it was riding the coat tails of the previous two movies, and that didn’t turn out well.
