Historical drama, Romance
Don't go to this movie for the often-awkward dialogue, nor for its bite-sized caricatures of 1912 humanity (snobbish industrialist Billy Zane and Italian immigrant Danny Nucci are the worst overactors). Go for the obvious reason: to see a gigantic ship sink agonizingly slowly in icy Arctic waters, sending 1,500 peoples to their deaths — and now, in 3D. James Cameron's epic is a disaster film for the ages, with a thrilling second half that more than compensates for Leonardo DiCaprio's squirrelly performance as a brash upstart from steerage whose shipboard romantic fling with rich man's fiancée Kate Winslet forms the unsteady back story. Is all the rumored $300 million price tag onscreen? Yes, give or take a few mil, and it's safe to say they recouped costs. When the bolts start to pop and the water bursts the bulkheads and the ship's orchestra plays waltzes to soothe the frightened passengers trying to board the few lifeboats, writer-director Cameron achieves his vision grandly. The best acting is amongst the character cast: Frances Fisher, Kathy Bates, Jonathan Hyde, David Warner, and Bernard Hill as the stoic captain. (195 min.)
