I'm just coming to the end of this film now, it's been sitting on my Sky+ box for some time. It looks as though it might make a half decent film at first, but that rapidly goes right out of the window. Some of the acting makes me wonder whether Titanic II wasn't the only thing to sink without trace, I'd guess the same might have happened to some of the actors' careers as well. There are 'bad acting' moments aplenty, but the one which stands out for me is when some guy is smashing the lead guy's face in and the girl says 'what's wrong with you? Get off him!' Nothing wrong with the line, but the way she delivered it, it sounded like she didn't give a tiny damn out what she was saying. Probably worrying more about her own career after seeing how this pretty bad film was panning out.
To those who are saying that this is better than the 'original' (which one's that then - Night to Remember, 'Titanic', or Cameron's 'Titanic' .:D ) either you're off your rockers, or you're having a laugh. I'm not sure which.
So much of this film just doesn't make any sense. Example: the original Titanic was sunk by a glancing blow to the side. So why in the name of God did Titanic II's bulkhead design not accommodate a side impact? It's laughable.
Don't buy this. If you're curious, wait until SciFi repeat it again, as they will - they've already done so several times. Watch Cameron's 'Titanic', or if you want a film that's just about the disaster without any love stories, then 'A Night to Remember' is your man.
When Titanic II sunk, it probably fell right on top of the old wreck, crushing what was left over from the great ship - if this film is intended as some kind of tribute, then that's exactly the effect it has for me. Dire.
