Brilliant release, and a very good upgrade to Blu-ray there are loads of good features plus a nice little booklet. But what I love about this film was the beautiful soundtrack that was composed by the late John Barry, plus a great cast which includes Jason Robards, Alec Gunness, David Selby. I know this film was a big flop at the Box Office, and most critics hated it, but who cares, I love it. Network are doing some brilliant old classic films, and hopefully more and more to come.

This movie must be viewed purely for its entertainment value and not for its historical accuracy or feasibility. Some critics have, in my opinion, ridiculed this movie based on these criteria....... and unjustly so. It is a great story, be it far fetched, with special effects that were created without the use of computer generated images. Brilliant stuff for the 80's. With a magnificent sound track, photography and entertaining storyline, give it a watch....for what it is,..........a movie to enjoy.

I fail to see where the previous reveiwer came to the conclusion of material available that could have been used in this DVDs release.

Being the UK's historian on "Raise The Titanic" of which I supplied (at the last minute) all that is seen in the 'special features' section, I can say that there is very little out there on this movie. There was no "official" making-of documentary made for this film, except for a promotional sales gimmick put together in 1980. Sadly this could not be used due to time contraints. No deleated scenes exsist anymore for this film, the original 12 minute sinking footage is currently in the hands of a private collector who will not release it and any "behind-the-scenes" footage (again) could not be used due to time constraints and copyright.

Before I became involved with the dvd, all that was going to be seen on the dvd was the film. And with the VERY little time I had to put together material from my private collection (including images not seen until now), the outcome for this release was far better than it was originally planned.

However, there is a possibility of a future release in a couple of years time of a "Special Edition" version of "Raise The Titanic", which will feature a lot more material from my private collection.

Contrary to what Amazon.com are stating I have in writing from Shout Factory that the aspect ratio from their new Blu Ray release of "Raise The Titanic" is the correct one of 2.35 : 1. At the same time they will not say if any extras will be included. As for the reviewer who states that it should be 2.20 : 1 this only applied to the few 70mm prints that were made. This great movie should look great on BD, and I hope that Shout Factory follow it up with ITCs "Green Ice".

Great film! However Clive Cussler didn't like, but it's my kind. I always thought what it would be like if Titanic's wheel be raised, at least. It is one of the films Robert Ballard saw, hours before he founded Titanic.
The film DO have good plot, and there is good acting. They're trying to retreive the ship's supposed asset Titanium, and we will see how they try to raise her. This just speaks for itself and to me a great plot! I bought the VHS because I like to watch 80's films on VHS. Just 4 plus star movie really. And recommended to any Titanic buff.
The film became more popular much after it went on cinema. Years after, so Cussler did get his investment payed off. As for me, however i don't think to raise the ship is great idea, but still, the wheel...
Just go buy it. Great film!!

I not only have to give it five stars due to my contribution to this release, but Raise the Titanic was my first big screen Titanic experience back in December 1980. Back then the film was relevant to the numerous expeditions that were set-up to find and possibly raise the "unsinkable". A lot of that has been lost since the discovery of the real Titanic, but the film can and does stand alone in a work of science fiction with Titanic as the backdrop. Based around the 1976 international novel of the same name by Clive Cussler, the story involves the efforts of the U.S trying to locate the sunken liner to retrieve from her cargo hold a rare mineral that could prevent a future war while being pitted against Russia who want to do the same. Due to many issues with not only the films production, the cold war story which was cut and rewrote several times to keep peace between nations while making America and the U.S Navy look the hero's in the story, these effected the overall appearance of the film. However, the film does have a certain appeal to it among fans and those who were brought up on old school Titanic movies, long before James Cameron sailed his ship onto the big screen. There are times the dialogue appears cheesy and there are times that the acting is a bit wooden but you cannot deny the sight of the mighty Titanic erupting up from the depths in slow motion as water pours from her decks and portholes is not something that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end along with John Barry's stunning Bond style action score. With this new release from Network (I also worked with them on their 2007 DVD release), the film had been given the HD treatment. It is not without flaw, and there is a certain amount of grain within the picture that maybe the perfectionist may not like.Read more ›
