By Michael Wilmington
A film that sweeps us away into a world of spectacle, beauty and excitement, a realm of fantasy unimaginable without the movies.

Baltimore Sun

By Ann Hornaday
The title represents size and power, speed and hubris -- the very things the ship has come to stand for and the things that Cameron has restored to the cinema with grand, generous style.

Titanic floods you with elemental passion in a way that invites comparison with the original movie spectacles of D.W. Griffith.

His (Cameron) movie may not be perfect, but visually and viscerally, it pretty well is.

The first half drags a bit, but the adventure scenes are exciting and the visual effects are as dazzling as Hollywood's most advanced technology can make them. Focusing as much on time and memory as on danger and disaster, it's an epic with a heart.
