Scientifically inaccurate, but entertaining.
13 February 2011 | by Bill ShroyerSee all my reviews

If you were irritated by the fact that Jack & Rose's path through the Titanic couldn't possibly have happened as they went through rooms that didn't even connect and doors that weren't even there and parts of the ship that were on entirely opposite sides without having to cross through the middle, then you won't like this movie.

It's definitely a made-for-TV type of movie and it's definitely modeled after "The Day after Tomorrow" (almost character-for-character). The science is rather atrocious, also, but if you yourself -are- scientifically illiterate or if you're just used to scientific illiteracy in cinema and therefore unphased by it, then you might like this flick. I was surprised to see SG1's Michael Shanks in what seemed to all appearances to be third-rate billing, but he was in it and he played as well as he ever does.

I'd recommend this if you're really kinda' reaching for something to watch, and you're not feeling too picky and SyFy made-for-TV quality is acceptable to you (I don't think it's a SyFy flick, but it's the same general quality). If you're into serious flicks, or if you don't care to see another "Day After Tomorrow", steer clear.
