One word. Amazing.

I should have watched this film a long time ago. Of course not when it was released in 1997, I was very young that time. :P I bet for those people who've watched Titanic 15 years ago, or watched it before the 3D version was released, you would had came out of the theatre breathless. 

The film starts off as a group of treasure hunters explores the wrecks of RMS Titanic in search of a diamond; "The Heart Of The Ocean".They discovered an old safe buried under the ruins of the ship & excavates it out, in hope to find the diamond but all they could find was an old painting of a woman wearing the diamond. An old woman claims that she is Rose Dewitt Buketer;the woman in the painting, a passenger on the ship and tells her whole story. 

What I could say, is that TITANIC deserved the 11 Academy Awards. The story was very touching, the acting was indescribable & visually, it was stunning. 

There was no special effects in 3D. The movie itself was already great. 
But, there was one change made to the film, the scene where Rose views the night sky. The scene was unrealistic & inaccurate according to an astrophysicist. Therefore, that scene was replaced with a more accurate view of the sky on that night. 

The story was really touching, notably the scenes when the Titanic hits the iceberg & its gradually  sinking. The audience was brought into the tense situations as they try to evacuate the passengers, the sacrifice, selfishness & love for one another was seen throughout. 
Cameron did the great job with tackling the story of the said "unsinkable ship" with love story &  experiences of the passengers in the Titanic. 

Storyline of the film was very touching & captivating, from the drama of Jack & Rose to the sinking of the ship. 
The acting was truly great. The actors really embraced their characters well. 
Music was no doubt, great. I mean, that's why it was a hit & won Best Music & Best Original Song. Check out some of their music here.
Visually, stunning. From the exterior of the Titanic to the interior & the visual effects throughout the film.

TITANIC is truly one of the greatest film I've watched. 

My Rating?

Plot : 4.75/5
Storyline : 4/5
Effects** : 4.5/5
OVERALL : 9/10.
