The plot focuses on the romances of two couples upon the doomed ship's maiden voyage. Isabella Paradine (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a wealthy woman mourning the loss of her aunt, who reignites a romance with former flame Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Meanwhile, a charming ne'er-do-well named Jamie Perse (Mike Doyle) steals a ticket for the ship, and falls for a sweet innocent Irish girl on board. But their romance is threatened by the villainous Simon Doonan (Tim Curry), who has discovered about the ticket and makes Jamie his unwilling accomplice, as well as having sinister plans for the girl.

Did You Know?


The lines Captain Smith recites on the bridge, "Low, low, breathe and blow / Wind of the western sea / Over the rolling waters go / Come from the dying moon, and blow" are from the poem "The Princess: Sweet and Low" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. See more »


Shortly after the ship collides with the iceberg, first class passengers Molly Brown, John Jacob Astor and the fictional character of "Mr. Foley" (loosely based on Sir Cosmo Edmund Duff-Gordon, a real passenger) are shown emerging from the second class entrance at the aft port side of the boat deck. To top off this odd moment, the trio is then shown admiring the passengers tossing around the pieces of ice that fell onto the deck after the collision, even though the ship hit the berg with her starboard side at the bow and the iceberg never even fully reached A-deck, which was a level below the boat deck.

Captain Smith: "Low, low. Breathe and blow, wind from the western sea. Over the rolling waters go, come from the dying moon and blow."
Second Officer Charles Lightoller: Sir?
Captain Smith: On my word, I have not thought of that verse since I was a cabin boy. Love of the ocean brought me to the sea as a lad and there's still wonder in it.

A good mini-series
5 August 1998 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

Though Titanic purists and some critics did not particularly care for this mini-series, it is rather good.

The cast is strong, including George C. Scott as the captain. The computer FX are well done. The only disappointment for me was the hodge podge way the final sinking was represented -- it was just a confusing series of cross fades that really showed nothing. Nevertheless, the film is worth seeing.
