Came before James Cameron's "Titanic", and certainly not any better.
3 June 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the main reasons people see IMAX films is because of the size of the screen. This is especially true of IMAX format documentaries. However, in the case of this particular film, the size of the screen is the ONLY draw.

Filmed in 1992, this movie followed a wave of Titanic popularity that peaked when the ship was found on the ocean floor by Robert Ballard in 1985. In this film, one of the many film crews that have been down to Titanic since then brings back images of the Titanic that are huge, and the Titanic is certainly deserving of such a format.

However, that is where the point of this film ends. All of the images that are in this film have been seen before, and there isn't anything surprising contained within. If one was to watch the National Geographic presentation that was shown on television a short time after the wreck was found, they could have seen everything that appears here, albeit a tad smaller. Martin Sheen did an excellent job at narrating that particular presentation, and Leonard Nimoy does an adequate job here as well.

Being a huge follower of the whole Titanic story, I was just bored to tears with this film. I wanted to see it because I am also a huge fan of the IMAX format, but I wish I hadn't wasted my time. The least they could have done was try and find something original to show us, rather than the same old same old. The fact that Titanic survivor Eva Hart is seen in this film isn't even a draw (bless her soul), as she has been seen in almost every documentary ever done on the Titanic, and her story seems to change a little bit each time she tells it.

Overall, the best thing about this film is that it is presented in IMAX format. Along with this, the music that goes with the film is extremely haunting, and matches the whole story behind the presentation. However, I can't even recommend this film to Titanic buffs, so I wouldn't recommend it to the average layperson.

My Rating: 3/10
