    It's a unique trip that flirts with hokeyness at the surface but that grows more compelling, awe-inspiring, and tragic the deeper you go.

    The experience couldn't be more realistic, though Cameron also superimposes imagery of passengers recalling the fateful night, to haunting effect.
  3. Cameron wants to take the audience ''back to 'Titanic,''' but the journey's magic is hemmed in, paradoxically, by the transcendence of his previous effort; surely he must know that a lot of us never left.
  4. Not just a 3-D novelty to amuse school groups, but also a memorial.
  5. The 3-D footage of Titanic does speak volumes, and sometimes the sheer fussiness of all the ghosts and archival images get in the way. As huge as the Imax screen is, when six different images vie for one's attention, it looks cluttered.
  6. Reviewed by: Carla Meyer
    Occasionally exciting but carefully controlled.
  7. The 3D, effective but not yet totally awesome, masks a world of sins: Ghosts can be an awfully tedious voyage-to-the-bottom-of-the-sea.

    Loved it! Really liked having a civilians (Bill Paxton) point of view in comparison to the scientists. It made me almost feel like I was there too seeing his reactions! Expand
