Watched this well after release but thought it was entertaining - what you'd expect. The movie seemed well done and the effects held up when I finally got around to watching it. Has some local interest here living in the east coast. A lot of the first responders came from Halifax and there is a graveyard here that has many of the victims of the event, so lots of local history. 

I remember girls coming to school with their picture pasted over Kate Winslet's face on posters with Leo. Massive movie at the time and who could forget the double VHS.

Mr. Cameron's attention to detail is quite commendable and it's worth the watch for that reason alone. The story, however, wasn't worth it and was boring.  The ship 100% sells this movie and made it worth watching just for that experience.

You kind of have to average out what this game brought in the practical effects department with the story. The story, I'd say is a 2. The effects are an easy 8, and possibly even a 9. I average the whole experience out to a 5.

Excellent movie. 10.

Saw it in the theatre with my highschool gf. Life changing.

Stands up as an adult, too.

From what I've seen, the film was pretty accurate as well? I mean... aside from the whole hope diamond/love affair deal. Wild story all around, but seemingly Cameron did a good job telling the true story while interweaving a fictional romance.

Also, Celine Dion is probably what makes this film a 10.
