Titanic (12A)

To coincide with the centenary of Titanic’s ill-fated maiden voyage, James Cameron has revisited his masterpiece and converted it to 3D.

The film begins deep underwater with Brock Lovett (Bill Paxton) and his team of high-tech treasure hunters scouring the submerged wreck.

The 3D is breathtaking – we can almost feel particles in the water brushing against our faces as cameras glide through compartments.

The search comes to nought until Brock meets 101-year-old survivor Rose DeWitt Bukater (Gloria Stuart).

Staring transfixed at a sketch of her younger self (Kate Winslet), Rose recalls her burgeoning romance with spirited artist Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) aboard the eponymous luxury liner.

Her jealous fiance Cal Hockley (Billy Zane) schemes to drive a wedge between the sweethearts with the help of his valet Spicer Lovejoy (David Warner) and Rose’s snobbish, money-oriented mother (Frances Fisher).

Fate intervenes and passengers fight for their lives as the ship quickly takes on freezing water.

Titanic is showing at the Odeon Kettering in 3D today at 11.20am, 3.20pm and 7.30pm.
