3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE - Region 2 not the same as Region 1 8 Dec 2007
Format:DVD
Beware - All the previous reviews are those of region 1. Region 2 has a lot less extras than region 1. The actual feature is certainly worth watching though there could be more footage of the interiors of the wreck. I understand that the extended version available only on region 1 has unseen footage of the interiors of the wreck. I find it ridiculous that we in Europe should be deprived of the real deal. The extended version alone would make this DVD more worth buying - hence the 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Titanic Tribute! 8 May 2004
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Director James Cameron does everything on a mammoth scale. After viewing this DVD, I wish I had seen the 3-D version. This is an exhaustive search of the remains of the Titanic. The inner portions of the ship are explored with two mini robots and the two submersibles with the director, actor Bill Paxton and the crew members aboard. This is at over 2.5 miles deep. Paxton adds some human humor/drama with the crew, but the real star is the ship. Starting from the stormy surface waters to the calm, eerie depths of the North Atlantic, Cameron leaves nothing out. There are still glasses and plates peacefully resting where they were left on that fateful night. Brass beds lay intact. Particular rooms of celebrity passengers are found with items left as they were. This is miraculous, as the ship spun wildly around in its' decent, spewing debris everywhere. Stained glass is still intact everywhere and the robot lights cast magical colors and shadows throughout. Cameron puts everything in perspective by frequently superimposing transparent actors dressed in period clothes strolling the deck. These "ghosts" add true scale to the Titanic.
The 90-minute version adds more information about the sea-life existing around the Titanic with comments from Dr. Lori Johnston. More of the Captain's personal life is explored as well as life aboard the state of the art research vessel. The 'making of' feature, "Reflections of the Deep" is interesting and includes some more information, but not a great deal more insight. "The ROV Experience" is more for the technically minded, but fun to experience. For extras, not much beats this collection, but glorious excess is what James Cameron is all about and he does justice to the Titanic.
Footnote: Towards the completion of the exploration, the crew heard about the attacks of 9/11. This was an all too eerie coincidence considering the massive tragedy of the Titanic that had been waiting decades to be explored

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In Ghosts of the Abyss, James Cameron returns to the watery grave of the Titanic in an effort to let the ill-fated ship tell the story of her own demise. Equipped with space age technology and twin little exploratory robots designed specifically for exploring the Titanic, Cameron and his team manage to take us into rooms unseen by human eye since April 1912. Not only do you get the theatrical version of this documentary film (albeit without the 3-D experience offered by IMAX), you also get an extended version featuring an extra half hour of material. Most people would just watch the extended version, but I wanted to get a feel for the difference the extra footage makes, so I watched both versions back to back. I was actually rather amazed to discover that the extended version is ten times better than the original - basically, all of the best material was left out of the theatrical release.
I have to admit I found Bill Paxton, the de facto narrator of the film, rather annoying at times. As he freely admits, he isn't really qualified for this type of deep-sea mission, and his giddiness and nervous humor tend to grow old pretty quickly. Like most people, I just wanted to see footage of the wreckage, not a chronicling of Paxton's anxiety over traveling to the ocean floor. I did enjoy the glimpses provided of the other crew members on the expedition, however - they are an interesting assortment of scientists, filmmakers, historians, and Russian seamen.
Ghosts of the Abyss does succeed in showing Titanic in all of her mysterious glory, and the underwater footage makes this film well worth watching.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best... 24 Nov 2010
By lmt25a
Format:DVD
This DVD was very disapointing and did not live up to my expectations.

The actual footage of the titanic was minimal and the film primarily centered around the actual expedition itself. The actual footage of the Titanic was totally spoilt by the picture in picture format which allowed very little time to absorb any detail.

A much better and far more interesting DVD is 'Deep inside the Titanic' where you almost feel you are there with them as they explore some areas of the Titanic's interior never seem before without the silly gimics!

1.0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment 25 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
Of all the hundreds of DVD's I have purchased I have never felt so dissappointed to go online and post my thoughts.

This documentary is a rambling wreck of a film in it's own right. I'm sure there must have been many hours of good film footage taken in the making of this film. However, the way it is presented with multiple picture-in-picture style (sometimes with as many as 6, 7 or even 8 images on screen) makes it almost impossible to see in any detail what your actually supposed to be looking at. Allowances have to be made for the fact that is was shot for Imax presentation where I'm sure the clarity of the huge screen made all the difference. On even a large home screen however the imagery is cramped and confusing. Almost everything of any interest is reduced to mini postage stamp montages.

And then there is the inane commentary that is absurdly thin on historical fact and big on exclamations like 'wow, look at the size of that', 'thats huge' and, well - you get my drift. You wouldn't have thought that they actually had historians along for the ride but they hardly get a word in. So annoying was Bill Paxton's bland commentary, it actually makes better viewing with the sound off.

In all a wasted opportunity. I really really wanted to like this, to be amazed and dazzled by it. And in there, somewhere the footage is there to amaze. I just wisth it had been put together by someone other than James Cameron and Bill Paxton.

It's a wee bit of a documentary not a film, and it should be marked clearly as this. You see Walt Disney and Bill Paxton and you expect a dramatisation!
