Definitely one of the more conservative edits I've seen, but there's clearly love for the source material behind this edit. What's good in Jaws 2 is brought to the fore, with tightened pacing and a spotlight on the returning characters and the impact of the previous movies on their psyches (or lack of impact in the case of the mayor). While those hoping for something a bit more off the wall akin to the famous "Jaws: The Sharksploitation Edit" might come away disappointed, for fans of the original, this is a much more well-honed and atmospheric version of that movie, well worth adding to your Jaws marathon. (For one thing, the "shocking" finale is far less ridiculous. For that alone, this edit deserves to supplant the original version in your collection!)
