100 years later, lightning strikes twice
On the 100th anniversary of the original voyage, a modern luxury liner christened "Titanic 2," follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an ice berg into the new ship's path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate.
"Everyone aboard the Titanic 2, get off the Titanic 2!" a woman shouts while on the Titanic 2.
Move the fuck over, Cameron, THIS is the ideal shipwreck disaster film. Not only does it have an emotionally driven romance at its center that easily tops whatever the hell was going on in the Cameron version, but a few of its scenes were filmed on the RMS Queen Mary that is permanently docked in Long Beach, California in hopes of making it seem like it's filmed somewhere else (I would know, I live by Long Beach and have spent the night in the Queen Mary and was scared shitless because that damn ship is haunted, I'm telling you), and then the movie plays it off that the ship's sailing out of New York because the Statue of Liberty is…
I was genuinely kinda looking forward to this one in a morbid kind of way. I'm actually kinda interested in the real history of the Titanic and also like James Cameron's movie a lot. So I was a little bit intrigued by seeing what the Asylum would make out of it.
Titanic 2 is, as expected, a schlockfest filled to the brim with horrible, horrible special effects, acting and sets that very clearly aren't looking like they belong on a ship.
We laughed as much as we hoped for it to end. I saw a lot of shit in my time but this is really one of the worst movie productions I have ever seen.
Curiosity killed the cat- or in this case, left me wondering how the f&@k movies like this even get made! It was like watching an awful soap opera..on a cruise ship..named the Titanic II.
The best film I've ever seen about the tragedy of the Titanic 2. And they say global warming isn't real!
The real tragedy of course is how orange everyone looks. Make-up, lighting or grading, whatever the reason there's just too much orange.
My friend was so funny, I didnt even need the PMI commentary
Great film. Holy shit.
Shane Van Dyke (Grandson of Dick) stars and directs "Titanic 2", and like the majority of what gets produced by Asylum the title is a lot better than the movie. It's pretty common to see low budget directors show up in their own films but not like this! Mr Dyke gets introduced with no less than 4 bimbos on his arms of course in slow motion. Even Uwe Boll wouldn't try to pull of a stunt like that. Bruce Davison also appears because he will star in anything as long as they promise hot dog lunches and bus fare reimbursement.
It was kind of funny in the opening but the second half is a disaster even by Asylum standards. It's…
Standard Asylum output that ends up being a mash-up of Titanic and The Poseidon Adventure with a dash of The Abyss. Throw in some Decker-style special effects and some fairly sketchy acting and you've got Titanic II. That said, this isn't the worst thing I've seen from Syfy. But it's still quite terrible.
What raises Titanic II above the realms of the awkward and risible, and into the realms of the truly awful, is the sheer nerve of capitalising on a real life tragedy in such a pathetic way.
The plot of the film is, depending on your point of view, stupid or cynical or stupidly cynical. A young, wealthy businessman (who is played by the screenwriter and director) has recreated the Titanic. Thousands – well, hundreds – well, tens of people, given what we see, are on board for its maiden voyage from America to somewhere. We’re not told where. Nobody at any time raises the point that building a ship called Titanic II, which is meant to be modelled on the…
So you want to watch Titanic 2? Then take a deep breath and, prepare for everything you loved about film to be drowned in the cold icey depths this film sinks to. No I'm not being hyperbolic. I write this so no more poor soul's may perish from seeing this disaster. Let's hope history never repeats itself.
Exploitation of a tragic event that cost the lives of many working class people.
- fearful CGI
Eat your heart out, James Cameron.
