It wasn't the iceberg that sunk that ship...

Jan 25, 2000

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:The acting. The score. The ship.

Cons:Anything that's not in Pros

This is the movie that rocketed him to A-list status, and made his moniker
a household name. I'm talking about Leonardo DiCaprio, of course. His acting abilities are stretched to the limit in this big-budget, big-action
film about the luxury-liner that sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic. I
knew before I went and saw this movie, that DiCaprio could act. But I was
still impressed by the bravura performance he gave in this movie. His best
skill is his ability to immerse himself in a part, to become the person he
is portraying. Kate Winslet co-stars as DiCaprio's love interest. She also
is skillful as an actor. She was born for this part. I think that wherever
she goes, whatever movie she does, she's always going to be remembered as
the girl who played Rose Dewitt Decatur. Titanic itself is a digitally-
engineered marvel. It's so real, so vivid, and so beautiful, you forget it
was made on a computer and not on the open sea. So why does Titanic fail
as a movie? I think, mostly, because of the dialogue. You can have an
absolutely brilliant actor, but if the dialogue isn't good, it's still
going to look fake. The movie just didn't convince me that lines that the
characters were reciting, were really coming out of their brains. Instead,
it looks as if they were reading them off of a cue card. The filmmakers
took a nineties paradigm and tried to mold the characters into it. Instead
of embracing the age when the event took place, they turn it into a crowd
pleaser. It's smarmy and sentimental. And I don't think it came together
too well. The musical score was good, but I think Cameron has a lot to
answer for.
