Main Plot

When a killer shark unleashes chaos on a beach community off Cape Cod, it's up to a local sheriff, a marine biologist, and an old seafarer to hunt the beast down.


  • Roy Scheider's character, Chief Brody, is the police chief who must protect the town from a man-eating great white shark.
  • Robert Shaw's character, Quint, is a grizzled shark hunter who helps Chief Brody and Hooper hunt down the killer shark.
  • Richard Dreyfuss plays a marine biologist who assists in hunting down and killing a deadly great white shark.


In the ending of Jaws, the relentless great white shark is finally defeated. Chief Brody, along with marine biologist Hooper and shark hunter Quint, embark on a dangerous mission to kill the shark. Quint is ultimately devoured by the shark, leaving Brody and Hooper to devise a plan. Brody manages to shoot a pressurized air tank into the shark's mouth, causing it to explode. As the shark sinks to the bottom of the ocean, Brody and Hooper swim back to shore, victorious.
