In the 1990s the Taliban jailed Afghan barbers for offering the ‘Titanic’, a haircut inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio’s in James Cameron’s 1997 epic. What a thrill it is to see DiCaprio in this souped-up re-release, a beautiful boy again (these days he looks like a puggish bit player in a ’30s mob movie). ‘Titanic’ has fared better than his looks, shining up like a new penny in 3D in time for the centenary of the disaster. Yes it’s backside-achingly long with a level of melodrama to make ‘Gone with the Wind’ blush, but distance drifts a puffy cloud of nostalgia over its faults.

We know the story ends badly but Cameron still sweeps us up in the romance between Kate Winslet’s rebellious posh girl and DiCaprio’s steerage kid. The 3D is dazzling, conveying the vastness of the ship in a way that will hit vertigo sufferers in the bladder. So too will Celine Dion’s theme song, which hasn’t improved with age.

Nicely non intrusive 3D, mass appeal (about 6 12 ish year old's and guardian NOISILY entered during Fox fanfare, 60 sec later, not a peep for remaining 194 min, bar booby errrrr, titters!) and enjoyed it more than in 1998 (1st and only viewing) but simply too long...a 150 min treatment would have me exclaiming "Excellent!" but as it is, very good. Do I want to see it again soon? no. Next decade? yes. If that sounds like a criticism, it ain't. It's an "event" film that demands the big screen...nothing less. 7+/10

Thought it fitting to see the film on the centenary and glad I did.The 3d effects were fantastic, the film has aged very well and it blew me away as it did the first time. Winslett and Di Caprio looked so beautiful and cherubic. An amazing movie, just wish James Cameron would donate all funds raised to the relatives of the 1500 poor souls who perished that night and not line his pockets once again, he hardly needs to!

a moral venture about the immoral humanity -it improvises with time -better than all the oscar winners since despite its obvious flaws

Should have ticked the stars. It is spectacular to look at in 3D but still torture for many men.

Robert

Didn't see it first time round at the cinema, but have seen it a few times on TV. I'm glad I decided to go - it is a classic movie spectacular (I went to a Vue, definitely the right place with their big screens) and the 3D is done well and not too over-engineered. Leo and Kate must be overjoyed that their youthful beauty is captured forever.

Being a titanic fan since "A Night to Remember" when I was a child, Cameron's was rge first film to show the destuction of Titanic as she sank. I can't wait to see the 3D version to reexperiance these details. I was awed the first time around and many times since, hopefully this time too!
