3.0 out of 5 stars Titanic Movie, with Catherina Zeta-Jones Sept. 30 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cinematography of this Titanic movie is of poor quality. The story line also is weak, however the costumes are quite lovely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better plot than Cameron, but not convincing enough April 17 2004
Format:DVD
I picked this DVD up in a videostore the other day and got really curious. Having seen James Cameron's blockbuster movie from 1997 and noticing that stars like Catherine Zeta-Jones were on the role list here, I had pretty high expectations about this one. But alas, I watched it without being too overly impressed. The special effects are laughable, you can easily tell that the ocean and iceberg is computer made and some of the sailing scenes even look painted at one point. Plot-wise, it goes real in depth with many of the characters and we get to really know what they're all about. We just don't stick to one couple that bore our asses off (Kate and Leo, yawn). No depressing James Horner background music a la "The Rose" either. The raping scene was a bit off the edge but it isn't as bad as people claim. I've seen worse things in other movies. The sinking of the ship was a huge disappointment, we only see images of the people in the lifeboats with a terrified look on their faces and just small seconds of the ship sinking and breaking in two. At this point of the movie, James Cameron does a much better job actually focusing on the ship sinking and breaking in two and paid less attention to the people in the lifeboats.
If you're fascinated by Titanic like me, then this movie is worth checking out but if you also want a great movie experience that makes you feel as if you were on the boat the night of the sinking, then James Cameron's version is the one to go for. Seeing that this was a movie produced for TV, it makes sense they didn't spend that much money on it but don't let that put you off from watching it, you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My love of all things Titanic Feb. 17 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been trying to get this movie since 1998-so happy to finally have it. Very good story line and very well acted. Too bad the other titanic movie came out at the same time-this is well worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the Theatrical Version but Better! March 5 2003
Format:DVD
I saw most of this movie on TV one day, I missed the beginning but I saw most of the movie and I really liked what I saw and I'm disappointed that the DVD is no longer selling and I hope to find a used copy but I also hope they rerelease this DVD. I have noticed that several reviews have gotten this George C. Scott, Catherine Zeta-Jones Version mixed up with the Winslet, DiCaprio version and mixing up movie facts, I'm not exactly 100% sure but I think the ship was only shown breaking in half in the theatrical movie but not this made for TV movie. If you are interested in movies based on the story of the Titanic and don't mind if some parts of the story are fictionalized then I recommend this movie, and you know that parts of the Dicaprio, Winslet version were fictionalized too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie about the Titanic disaster June 29 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I didn't see the Titanic movie that starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet but I saw this one that starred George C. Scott, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Peter Gallagher and I like it though I could have done without the nasty character played by Tim Curry and what he did to the young immigrant girl and for that reason I can't give this movie 5 stars, I like Tim Curry but I just didn't like the character he played, but there really were some great scenes in this movie especially the scene when the ship was sinking and they showed all the people who didn't make it off and that was really sad especially the children who didn't make it off and It just made me think of the real people who actually lost their lives during the real Titanic disaster that's how powerful that scene was.

1.0 out of 5 stars bored April 16 2002
Format:DVD
Maybe i'm missing something, but this thing bored the tears out of me.When it came on T.V. i was very excited. I've been a titanic buff for years. But by the end of the first hour i was channel surfing like mad.
The movie was horribly unhistorical in many ways. For one the character of andrews, the ships builder was gone. The Captain was WAY more active during the sinking then he was in real life. (in reality he completly lost it. just kinda zoned out.) Then as if they needed more drama(you know 1500 people dying cold horrible deaths just isn't exciting enough),we get Tim Currey popping up in a life boat with a gun. I actually laughed out loud at that.
If you want a good tv version of the titanic sinking watch S.O.S Titanic. It's a good solid effort. If you happen to think Romance books of the month are great original reading then maybe this movie's for you.
To sum it up: a poor version of the titanic story written by people that believed there wasnt enough drama in the real story.( i honestly believe a million monkeys typing on a million typewriters couldn't have come up with anything worse.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed April 1 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I am a huge historical Titanic buff, and this movie was truly dissapointing to me. The plot was thin at best, the cast, though superb, turned in a rather blase performance. This protrayal didn't capture the spirit of the distaster as some of the best documentaires and movies have done. As a fan of this historical event, I was truly dissapointed in this very "Hollywoodized" attempt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Made For Television... Jan. 12 2002
Format:DVD
This is a passable account of the Titanic tragedy, however the overall visuals and editing are quite erratically done. George C. Scott and Catherine Zeta-Jones give fairly believable performances, but I didn't truly feel sadness when the ship and its passengers fell beneath the sea. The story focused on many people, of many classes, yet I still didn't connect with any of those portrayed. I don't know. Maybe it's me.
No matter which telling of the Titanic one watches, there is only one sincere, dignified way of portrayal that can be accepted as "the best"-the one which forces one to remember and honor those who lost their lives due to this horrible tragedy of an "unsinkable" ship. It may actually be this one, or it may be another. Whichever, hopefully the individual will be so engrossed in the story before them, that all of the technical aspects of the film will melt away, leaving nothing but the needless death of many innocent souls. This telling was not that particular one for me, but that doesn't matter. It is for someone, and for that reason, this film serves its purpose.
