Jaws 2 is a 1978 horror/thriller film and the first sequel to Jaws, which was based to Peter Benchley's novel with the same name. Directed by Jeannot Szwarc, it stars Roy Scheider as police chief Martin Brody, who must deal with another Great White shark terrorizing the waters of Amity Island, a fictional seaside resort.


Police Chief Brody must protect the citizens of Amity after a second murderous shark begins terrorizing the waters, but this time it is difficult for him, because the shark doesn't appear often and because the politicians in that place turn a blind eye to the eventual problem because of business interests they want to protect. Finally, his children and a group of teenagers are being attacked by the shark and he is alone dealing with it.
