Spielberg’s first major Hollywood project and the one that established a term called “summer movie”.
An absolute classic that cemented Spielberg as one of the biggest directing talents we ever had. Even a non working shark prop couldn’t change that.
Best part: Quint (Robert Shaw) and his stories about previous shark encounters.
Don’t let the other Jaws movies in the franchise fool you. This is a standalone masterpiece because it’s the only one Spielberg was involved with!
