This 3D re-release of the 1997 film, starts out as a present day undersea expedition in search of a valuable diamond aboard the wreckage of the Titanic, however, it then uncovers a tragic story of love between 17-year-old Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio), a free-spirited artist and third-class passenger who ignites the unquenchable fires of passion inside her. As their story begins, the fate of the Titanic draws to a tragic end across the icy waters of the Atlantic.
Review By Syahida Kamarudin
14 years ago, a very ambitious director had an idea of a movie about the historically infamous, glorious, and supposedly unsinkable ship called the RMS Titanic that ironically sunk on its maiden journey in 1912. After several auditions, he chose "Romeo and Juliet" up-and-coming actor Leonardo DiCaprio to play the lead role - a love-struck commoner named Jack Dawson. After a lot of pleading and reassurance, he then chose a talented actress Kate Winslet, who was slightly unknown in Hollywood at the time to play the role of rich girl desperate for freedom, Rose DeWitt-Bukater. The movie developed into a big hit and was named the highest grossing film of all time.
A decade and a half later, the class-divided love story set in the rise and fall of a great ship comes back to life - with a 3D treatment!
Now, what is there for fans to see? The movie in its own was a state-of-the-art product of its time. James Cameron in his finest - successfully created a balance of being a critically acclaimed movie and a big box-office hit that there is no other way but to move forward with a 3D version. And if 14 years ago audiences would have went to the cinema expecting to watch a love story between a rich girl and a poor boy, and return home humming to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" - this time, you will have the pleasure to see the enhanced bit of the technical side.
Through "Titanic 3D", audiences are served with the important parts that Cameron has put his whole heart and soul (and money) into, but received not much credit for in 1998 because everybody were blinded by the 'Leo-Mania' and his shiny boy band hairdo.
This time around, you will get to see the emphasis on the spectacular ship in its finest, the picturesque view of the ocean and the breathtaking sunset where the famous "flying" scene was captured. Audiences will also get to see the horror and unfathomable moments when the ship hits the iceberg, the gradual process of its diminution and finally sinking into the ocean.
There is nothing to say that had not been said about the acting, the cinematography or even the score of the film. But if you were once a teenager who fell in love with this movie or a pair of lovers on their first date once upon a 1998, this is the time to recapture the love, the moment and the unsinkable spirit of "Titanic" in 3D.
A fantasy movie with fairytale beings battling to keep the world of nature alive.
Cameron Diaz was seen squaring up to Leslie Mann on the set of The Other Woman.
