A group of Americans are interested in raising the ill-fated Ocean liner Titanic. One of the team members finds out the Russians also have plans to raise the ship from its watery grave. Why all the interest ? A rare mineral on board could be used to power a sound beam that will knock any missile out of the air when entering us airspace. Written by

The DVD sleeve cover notes that this film was "made five years before the actual discovery of the Titanic's whereabouts in 1985". Bar one of the smoke stacks, the RMS Titanic appears as an intact ship in this film but as the vessel had not been discovered when the film was made (and nor when the novel was written), it was not known that it had actually split into two during the disaster, this is depicted in the later film Titanic (1997). As such, the film is retrospectively historically inaccurate. See more »
In the film, the Titanic's second funnel is missing. Though no one knew at the time that the ship had lost all 4 funnels when it sank, it was generally known that the first (forward) funnel, not the second one, had toppled over and detached from the ship during the sinking. See more »
You want to talk about distress, we have Navy weather forcasting a Force 12 storm, we have Russians looking down our throats and we are on a ship that never learned to do anything but sink, that's distress.

I saw this movie in the theatre, and I remember enjoying it. I knew it was a financial failure, but over the years since I've been surprise by the hatred it has generated. Long before Robert Ballard, finding the Titanic and possibly raising it was a dream I shared with a lot of Titanic fans. Clive Cussler wrote a pulpy but entertaining book on the subject, and I thought the story was made into a pulpy, but entertaining movie. I liked the cast: Richard Jordan, David Selby (I'm a Dark Shadows fan also...hoots of derision), Jason Robards and Anne Archer. Now, however, I have to watch a fading print under cover of darkness to avoid more hoots of derision! I've read that there is excised footage that might help the storyline. I'd buy a directors cut DVD, and have a "Raise the Titanic" party. It's only an entertainment, not a work of art.
