Titanic 3D

The opening of James Cameron's record-smashing, gong-grabbing, arse-numbing event movie - Yanks looking for money making opportunities in a long-buried relic - feels ironic in light of this unashamedly cynical re-release.

The retro-fitted 3D creates a weird disconnect between actors and sets, making certain green-screen moments glaring.

It’s a needless distraction from what’s still a spectacularly impressive, emotionally wrenching epic. Leo and Kate give good doomed romance but it’s the human horror of the collision, botched evacuation and final sinking that devastates most.
