Goofs

In the US version, the narrator states, "Every 10 cubic feet of 'berg is a ton of solid ice". The actual density of ice is about a quarter of that. In the UK version he says "Every cubic metre of 'berg is a ton of solid ice", which is a lot closer to the actual density of ice 0.92 g/cm³, equivalent to 0.92 tonnes, 0.90 UK tons or 1.01 US tons per cubic metre.

Excellent
28 March 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is a top-notch film. I can't understand how it's been buried away (on Channel 5 in the UK, under a different name), when it should be much more prominent and widely reviewed. There are some good actors in it, and it looks expensive: the sets and the CGI are of a very high standard - much better than in some much more high-profile versions.

The whole thing gives a fuller and more convincing impression of the Titanic as it really must have been than any of the many syrupy "Let's tack on a soap opera" versions - which are still being churned out. It also manages a real sense of danger, even though the story is so well known.

If you get a chance to see it, don't miss it.
