Critics reviews

Titanic is blatant in trying to position itself in a grand tradition of big cinema. Cameron’s showmanship often wields tremendous visual acuity, right from the stunning opening shot of submersibles sinking through the endlessly black sea, describing documentary detail and yet immediately introducing a note of eerie, numinous adventure, penetrating the sunken graveyard of memory and eras past.

For all the hokeyness, Titanic kept me absorbed all 194 minutes both times I saw it. It’s nervy as well as limited for writer-director-coproducer James Cameron to reduce a historical event of this weight to a single invented love story, however touching, and then to invest that love story with plot details that range from unlikely to downright stupid. But one clear advantage of paring away the subplots that clog up disaster movies is that it allows one to achieve a certain elemental purity.

What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Titanic

    This is what's wrong with Hollywood. Whoever gave this Cameron guy a job should "lose his L.A. privileges", like Butch in Pulp Fiction.

  • Edward's rating of the film Titanic

    Love Cameron's quote from when he just finished editing this: “I just realized I made a $200 million chick flick where everyone dies. What the hell was I thinking?”

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Titanic

    Was in the mood for a James Cameron film I didn't know forward and backwards like "T2," and I honestly don't think I'd seen this in its entirety since theaters. Everything about "Titanic" is a grand gesture—but give yourself over to the romantic artifice of it all, and the movie still casts a spell. You could (quite easily) make the argument this remains the most technically accomplished Hollywood film of all time.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Titanic

    Nearing it's 20th anniversary Cameron's 'Titanic' still stands as a magnificent effort both technically and emotionally. The artisans who worked on this film advanced their fields resulting in a record amount of Oscars in recognition. Cameron's hubris and a somewhat hackneyed script aside this stands the test of time. Winslet was magic here in a star making performance. '...this is where we first met...'

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Titanic

    I know that in the last years it has become a trend for all the cool kids to dislike "Titanic". I don't care. I think this one of the greatest masterpieces Hollywood has ever produced, and within a couple more decades it will be universally acclaimed just like "Gone with the Wind", "Casablanca" and other romantic epics. So everyone take a chill pill and go listen to some Celine Dion!

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Titanic

    Essentially a three-hundred million dollar b-movie that's a lot of fun (still) if you're a sucker for melodrama and lengthy, star-lit shipwreck sequences. The dialogue is terrible at best, and some of the acting is highly questionable, but the sheer size of the production is still as awe-inspiring as ever. The shipwreck sequence is just as astounding now as it was in 1997, and the 3D was well-utilized.

  • Dave's rating of the film Titanic

    Film buffs seem to automatically assume this is overrated garbage, but I don't care...I enjoy the hell out of it. Perhaps it is because of the cultural significance this film had while I was in my teens, but I don't really care. I make no apologies for being a fan of this one.

  • PolarisDiB's rating of the film Titanic

    I rewatched this from a grown filmmaker's perspective and gotta say, Cameron's attention to detail on the overall design of the ship, how he reveals its destruction step-by-step and breaks it down set-by-set, and how those setpieces are introduced with the 1st Class/Steerage subplot are a very canny and clever way of showcasing the event from as many angles and perspectives as possible. Also: iconic.--PolarisDiB
