we like to admit it or not statistically most people have seen
this film - whether this is due to it being a great film or the
power of the film industries marketing campaigns I will leave
it to you decide (the answer is the marketing campaign by the
huge budget modern Hollywood take on the Titanic story with a
more realistic focus would have made for a fantastic film, but
would it have gone on to be so huge - I doubt it. So what we have
here is a good love story displacing one of the greatest stories
every told. An overly sentimental script, two fantastically attractive
actors who know the score, and a sickly sweet soundtrack by queen
of cringe Celine Dion, all of which come together to form a truly
stodgy confection. It's definitely a romantic film, but it certainly
leaves you begging for less.
is but one silver lining in all of this - it is unlikely there
will be a Titanic 2.
