Continuity mistake: In one of the final scenes in which the shark is attacking, the colour of the water is not consistent in the background. In one scene it is light blue, and in the other it is much darker blue.

Continuity mistake: The transmitter device that Jake attaches to the shark is missing between shots during the entire movie.

Continuity mistake: When Ellen is on the boat, and sees the shark coming towards her, the distance between her and the shark does not look very far. When it cuts to Mike, Jake and Hogie in the plane, from their view the distance between the boat and shark looks much greater, about 60-70 metres. Also, only about five seconds later, the shark jumps out of the water and strikes the boat, the shark could not have swam that distance in such a short time.

Continuity mistake: When Mike goes down to the ocean to hug his mother, she turns with the ocean at her left hand. When it cuts to them hugging the ocean is at her right hand. (00:11:50)

Mistakes

At the end when the shark is attacking the boat and the electronic device is used you can hear the shark roar. Sharks cannot produce this sound since they have no vocal cords.

Trivia

There are two different endings to this movie. In the first one (released on video and DVD in the US), the shark (inexplicably) explodes after being rammed by the boat and sinks to the bottom in a reuse of footage from "Jaws." When the camera cuts back to the survivors floating in the water, we see that Mario Van Peebles, though badly wounded, is alive after all. In the second ending (which can be seen on American Movie Classics in the US), Mario Van Peebles does not survive his fall off of the boat; when he falls, he lands in the shark's mouth and is killed. Also, when the boat rams into the shark, it does not explode but is more "realistically" impaled, blood pouring from its mouth as it dies. After the survivors are knocked off the boat, there is a shot of ship and shark sinking to the bottom, prow of the ship stuck in the side of the shark.
