The Best Shark Movies

List Criteria: Movies must feature sharks prominently.

A list of the best shark movies of all time. This list includes all genres of fiction as well as live-action shark films and animated shark movies. Ever since "Jaws" brought shark movies into the mainstream, countless other shark films have been made. Be warned though, while some shark movies may be fine for kids, most of the best shark movies might be too scary. For whatever reason (probably the "Jaws" franchise) the great white shark is the most popular shark species in these films. That said, other species can be found too, including mako sharks and even the megalodon.
