The Seven-Ups (1973, dir. Philip D’Antoni)

An elite cop squad comes up against a kidnapping crew targeting underworld figures. Effective thriller drawing on some of the same material as The French Connection; great wintry New York location work and a fine car chase too.

Jaws 2 (1978, dir. Jeannot Swarc)

Chief Brody takes on a second shark menacing Amity Island. Teen-oriented sequel to the Spielberg classic which maintains something of the feel of the original, though the story is inevitably second-hand. The original cast (minus Dreyfuss) do their best.
