Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nowhere near as good as the first, and lacks the traces of true stupidity that make the latter two fun bad movies."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A vastly underrated sequel with plenty of shocks and nail-biting tension. Not quite up to the original, but still loads of fun."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"...Jaws 2 hits a qualitative ceiling due to the joint absence of Steven Spielberg and Academy Award-winning editor Verna Fields."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Rather redundant, rather biting. What, fish again?! Still, not a bad sequel."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Delivers [Nearly] as much as the first"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"the filmmakers did everything they could to breathe new life into the material without forgetting what had made that material work in the first place"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Roy Scheider is the only redeeming quality of this sequel."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"The first of three crummy sequels unworthy of the original."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
