Forever a classic
2 September 1999 | by moop96See all my reviews

A powerful film that has it all. Watching this film seems to put you there, on the ship, as it happens. The characters are truly believable, not wooden or "modernized" as in other movie versions. Also impressive were the c. 1953 special effects. There are times when the huge model used in the movie looks more "real" than the effects featured in movies made about the disaster to this day. It seems unfair that someone can step in and make a new film of the same name (and, you will see, ideas) and seemingly pretend as though this great film never existed.
