Synopsis

Storyline:
Engineers, architects and historians are assembled to examine why the Titanic sank, using new technology that has come to light since James Cameron’s film Titanic (1997).
User Reviews: I won’t get into the politics the previous reviewer brought up about Cameron, since one man’s opinions and ideas and thoughts are their own – though you can’t deny that Cameron does have a point towards the last conclusion. Instead I’ll just quickly talk about my impressions of the documentary. It is very well put together. You have, first and foremost a panel of various professionals and researchers and throughout it there are interviews with them which provide a more emotional side to the documentary aside from the analytical talk with the scenes of the "roundtable" of researchers. Cameron provides various animations from beginning to the end based on factual data they’ve all come up with throughout the years and it’s really fascinating to watch all of it. I especially loved the bits when Cameron’s pre-vis artist demonstrated an animation of real-time sinking of the ship post break-up. Quite a sight. You have various other animations based on data that was eye-opening as well. You also have bits and pieces where Cameron and the team discuss the new information and relate it to his film – what he got right and what he got wrong. The overall production quality is solid, even down to the set they’re in, very good music plays throughout it as well, sort of above standard type of pieces you’d normally see in these made for TV documentaries. Filled with more emotion that fits the interviews or the scenes. If you’re an avid Titanic fan like me, who’s been fascinated with the ship and its fate since 10 years old – you are no doubt going to enjoy it. That isn’t to say people who don’t know much or don’t care wouldn’t – it would actually be more informative for them. However all in all, it’s a solid piece regardless. Well put together.
