As a big fan of Imax films, I was quite dissappointed by how uninterested I was in this film. The underwater footage is impressive, but I think a viewers time will be better spent watching James Cameron's new big screen version of the story, 'Titanic.'
"Titanica" was the second IMAX film I viewed in my life. As with the first IMAX film I saw, the beginning previews and introductions to the IMAX theater were very entertaining while most of the movie was rather dull. I wish a really enjoyable IMAX film would be created. "Titanica" wasn't very enjoyable. I agree completely with Eric W. (who also wrote a "Titanica" review). It was disappointing and James Cameron's "Titanic" is much more enjoyable. There are definitely many ways "Titanica" could have been improved. It was basically a waste of an IMAX film. Nice try, anyway. If you have any comments about my review, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having seen James Cameron's Titanic, my interest in the great ship grew again. I orginally saw this film in an IMAX Theater in the early 90's. Having just bought the tape I was able to watch it again and I have to say it is as good as I remember it. However, it does lose something being on a smaller screen. I do have to disagree with the other reviewers of this film but I don't think this film is not without its flaws.
The film basically focuses on an expedition 2 1/2 miles below sea level to the ships graveyard. One gets to see how everyone acts during this time, warts and all. The infighting is shown, the arguements... but also are the good times and the excitiment of discovery of the ship. A nice touch is the recounting of the disaster from a survivor. Listening to her is touching and very sobering.
The only thing I wish, is that they put more about the history and more of the story of that fateful night. I know that people can find much of that elsewhere but when watcing this film, it would have helped the people who are not totally aware of the story behind the sinking and give a better appreciation to what they are seeing when they see the remains of the ship. However, this is a minimal complaint that does not take away from the film as a whole.
I went and saw this movie in the imax theater with my friend. And as bad as everyone says it is I thought that it was really cool and I know that a lot of people would really like this movie!!! But if you do not like the imax theater because it may get you sick because it feels like you are really there I would not go and see it because most of the time the theater is full and you can not get out with out making many people mad at you!!!
