You're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat!
Jaws is considered a classic for many reasons. It’s acting is superb, with Richard Dreyfuss being a stand-out performance. It was phenomenal. The violence is there, the film is considered to have some of the best practical effects ever. The blood is obviously fake, like, if your kid can think logically and understand that humans don’t produce as much blood as the film suggests then its fine. The only real problem as far as violence goes (this is not a spoiler it happens in the first 30 minutes) is a kid does get eaten. But it's just that there a fine line between scary (witch this film is) and violent (witch this film mostly isn't). It is amazing though. But then Quint enters the picture, he came in at the beginning asking for a lot of money to catch the shark, that wasn't the problem. Towards the beginning part of the second half of the movie, they gave him a bigger part. Witch was mabey a bad choice. It's not that Robert Shaw was not good in the part, that's not at all what I’m saying, he is a great actor. But I don’t know if it's that they didn't develop him enough or they developed him way too much for too long of a time, but Quint was incredibly unrelatable and boring. But that did not stop me from LOVING the first hour and the last 30 minutes. It’s just that 2 hours and four minutes is a LONG runtime for a film. But that aside anyone (particularly if they are a filmgoer) has to see this masterpiece. And no surprise Steven Spielberg is the director.
