Brody, Hooper, and Quint set out on Quint’s boat, the Orca to hunt the shark. During their pursuit, the trio form an unlikely bond of friendship and trust. After several unsuccessful close encounters with the shark, they decide to use Hooper's anti-shark cage. Hooper tries luring the shark close enough pump lethal drugs into it with a hypodermic spear, but the shark destroys the cage. Hooper escapes unharmed and dives to the bottom for safety. The shark then attacks the boat, damaging it so bad it begins to sinks. As seawater rushes into the stern, the Orca tilts upwards. Quint loses his grip, sliding into the beast's mouth and is killed. Knee-deep in water and sinking fast, Brody makes a final stand. He tosses one of Hooper's scuba tank into the shark’s mouth and climbs onto the ship's mast. He fires his rifle directly at the tank, blowing the shark to smithereens. Hooper surfaces, and he and Brody swim safely back to shore.
Revealing mistake: When the shark bursts through the window of the cabin, in each of the shots facing Brody, including when he shoves the air tank into the shark's mouth, the glistening water is visible in the window's reflection behind Brody. The shark's reflection is never seen behind Brody, despite the shark's massive size in the small cabin. Bruce must have had the day off during Roy Scheider's takes. (01:58:00)Super Grover
Question: When Quint and Hooper are comparing leg scars, they are sitting near each other with legs overlapping. The shot moves to Brody, then back to Quint and Hooper at the table, sitting apart. Quint is fastening his pants, buckling his buckle, and zipping his zipper. He obviously showed them something that was edited out of the movie. What was it?Rick Neumann
