Brucetta (a.k.a Jaws The Third /Jaws III) is the nickname for the the shark depicted in the film Jaws: 3D and serves as the main antagonist. Just when you thought it was safe, Jaws strikes revenge as Brucetta the shark, killing everyone in her way!
In many respects, some critics have noted that the shark can be empathized with in so far as it being a wild animal held captive in a waterpark against its will due to the greed of the park operators. Thereby, justifying its wanton escape and the subsequent carnage left in its wake. In this respect, the film can be compared to other mega rampaging monster flicks like King Kong.
Role in Jaws 3DEdit
Brucetta and her child are held captive at Sea World. After Brucetta kills diver Shelby Overman and two coral thieves in cold blood, as well as terrorizing hundreds park visitors, Mike "Michael" Brody is able to use a metal pole to pull the pin out of the grenade, blowing Brucetta's head apart and killing her. Her jaws are then shown floating towards the screen.
