Movie Summary

James Cameron

Titanic revolves around the unlikely romance of rich society girl Rose Dewitt Bukater and the starving artist Jack Dawson aboard the doomed ship Titanic. As their relationship grows, they must find a way to avoid the unpleasant situation that arises with Rose's fiance. A framing device is used at the beginning and end of the film, showing a 100-year-old Rose returning to the scene of the Titanic's demise with a treasure hunter. While fictional, these characters interact with many historical people and events.

Metacritic Score

  • 100

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    A huge, thrilling three-and-a-quarter-hour experience that unerringly lures viewers into the beauty and heartbreak of its lost world.

  • 90

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    A spectacular demonstration of what modern technology can contribute to dramatic storytelling.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    What audiences end up with word-wise is a hackneyed, completely derivative copy of old Hollywood romances, a movie that reeks of phoniness and lacks even minimal originality.


  • Truly an amazing movie

    One of the greatest movies of all time.
  • One of the Greatest Films of All Time

    I admit I'm not a fan of drama films and television series, but this an exception. This film is among my all time favorites to the point I watch it every April 15, the same night Titanic went down into the sea. It is beautifully done and the romance is able to mix with the historical events creating a beautiful story.

    Like Beast and Gaston form Beauty and the Beast, there are differences between Jack and Cal. Jack seems like a poor, rough delinquent, but he holds great wisdom and is a very nice guy. Cal is rich and sophisticated, but is a selfish control freak and abusive, so it's no wonder rose chose Jack over Cal.

    I also love how Rose starts out as sort of rebellious, yet withdrawn, due to her status, but breaks out of her shell after falling for Jack and abandons her selfish mother and Jack.

  • A great movie.

    A great movie of James but it's a good .
  • About this film

    This had great art direction, cinematography, costume design, directing, film editing, music score, song for My Heart Will Go On, sound mixing, sound effects editing and visual effects
  • One for the history books (more ways then one).

    Romance+Part of History+Funny+Great acting= One of the best movies out there ever. Only one bad thing, alittle long for me.
