Director: James Cameron
Starring: Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic - and 15 years since director James Cameron's vision of what happened that fateful night first hit the big screen.
There aren't many who haven't already seen Cameron's Oscar-winning epic film. Millions flocked to cinemas around the world to see Kate Winslet's Rose and Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack fall in love on the doomed ship. My own father even went to see 'Titanic' and, at the time, he hadn't been to the movies in approximately 10 years.
And now Cameron and his producing partner Jon Landau have seen fit to re-visualise the famous movie in 3D. This, we were told, was going to be 'Titanic' like we had never seen it before.
Well, sorry, Mr Cameron and Mr Landau, but 'Titanic 3D' looks an awful lot like the original movie.
So non-existent are the "amazing" 3D effects, I found myself pondering if I had inadvertently walked into a 2D screening by accident. And I wasn't alone in that sentiment.
However, there are folks out there who have watched 'Titanic' on DVD so often (one woman at the screening I attended claimed to have watched the movie 40 times), that the chance to see their favourite film on the big screen again will be a thrill, regardless of what they may think of the supposed 3D effects.
But, 3D or no 3D, 'Titanic' is still a whopping 194 minutes long. One for the absolute die-hard fans only.'Titanic 3D' is out in NZ cinemas from April 5.
