Stuart Barr’s review:
The 3D version!
If you love Titanic, this is still the same film. Of course the same is true if you hated it the first time around. The script is still horrible, the romance still trite, the characters still cardboard. One still wonders why Cameron felt the sinking of the Titanic lacked sufficient drama that it needed Billy Zane to chase Ate and Leo around with a gun to pep things up.
However the digital effects still holdup and the production design is as sumptuous as ever. The 3D conversion puts the Star Wars one to shame, the film still looks vibrant, and there is a real sense of depth. Ultimately I would argue that it adds little, but neither does it detract.
