Never realized the glaring plot hole in this movie. They try to kill the shark using methods from the Middle Ages, but all they need to do is contact the U.S. military and get a helicopter strike to take him out.
Or call Aquaman and tell him to tell Mr.Shark to stop and go away.
I just never understood how ignorant some people can be in these movies haha
Just don't get it. A spear gun, a few barrels, and a rusty, old boat doesn't seem like the most surefire way to take out the shark. I don't find it believable either that a town would entrust its summer economy with a drunk fisherman over seeking help from the Coast Guard or sumtin.
