Saving The Titanic

Another Titanic tale
If you're like me and have no interest in the re-release of James Cameron's Titanic in 3D (we all know it wasn't filmed in 3D) then consider Saving the Titanic for a fresh angle on the infamous, oceanic disaster. Saving the Titanic focuses on the ship's crew deep in the bowels of the vessel, who selflessly sacrifice their lives to keep Titanic afloat for as long as they can in order to allow as many passengers to get off safely. The movie is a hybrid of a documentary and a drama. Moments of scripted dialogue of actual-event-reenactments are shown with occasional scenes of animated diagrams of the ships anatomy with a narrator describing what viewers are seeing. Although there are no household names as far as the actors go, the acting is top notch.

  1. Just reading about how there were those who stayed under to save lives makes me cry a little. This movie might be too heart wrenching for me.

    1. Yes, it does tug at your heart when watching it. These men worked like dogs to the very end, sweating profusely, knowing very well that they would go down with the ship. They were not forced to do it, yet chose to in order to keep the ship afloat a little longer, allowing more passengers to escape. That is real heroism.
