If a sequel of a classic Spielberg needs to exist I would rather have a Jaws 2 then an E.T. 2. With that said, this is a pretty solid sequel but is the cause for more terrible films to come.

Compared to the original JAWS phenomenon, JAWS 2 is a huge load of crap, but even so, it's still an enjoyable popcorn flick leading into the '80s.

Not terrible, just not anything close to the original. At least it still has Roy and the music of John Williams in it.

I know it's a sequel to a classic, but for some reason I enjoyed it more than the first Jaws. It doesn't have all the same cast, either, but it's very exciting and ups the special effects. I really enjoyed it, and if you liked Jaws, you should check it out.
