Finally got a chance to see this and wasn't too disappointed.

James Franciscus stars in this Italian rip off of the JAWS films here in the USA.

He is Peter Benson, a biologist who, after a young man disappears under mysterious circumstances in the ocean, seeks to convince the local Mayor that a shark has come into their waters.

The Mayor refuses to do anythng because of an upcoming regatta, but an Irishman named Ron Hamer (Vic Morrow) agrees to help him in his quest to kill the shark.

They both get more than they bargained for when they discover that the shark is a huge 35 foot great white. The film works well if you're not expecting too much in the way of originality.

I like the shark as it does come across as terrifying in most of it's scenes. There is some gore, but not a lot. The shark even takes out a helicopter much like in Jaws 2.

This movie gets a lot of flack but I have seen much worse. I think the film works better if you're afraid of water and sharks. Check it out for a good way to waste 90 minutes.
