Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cameron has devised a tender love story between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio that serves as the main focus of Titanic's storyline, and it works beautifully."
‑ Paul Tatara, CNN.com
"Titanic provides an absorbing blend of historical fact and old-fashioned Hollywood tearjerking."
‑ Maria Schneider, AV Club
"DiCaprio and Winslet both deliver star-making performances."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"DiCaprio manages a good mix of youthful bravado and nervous uncertainty... And Winslet shines as a willful rich girl who discovers her sensual side with this earthy urchin."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"Jack and Rose actually cause the Titanic to hit the iceberg. Watch closely."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"If computer-generated special effects have overpowered human-generated drama, Cameron seizes that dangerously cold technology and recasts it as dream and delirium, profoundly human in its sources and longings."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Daily News
"Titanic is indeed a ship of dreams. Climb aboard and bon voyage."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"It's a technically magnificent and emotionally wrenching experience."
‑ Serena Donadoni, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Titanic 3D lacks creative synergy that could have been explored had the film been shot with 3D in mind but its easily the best example of post-conversion to date."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"Director James Cameron takes one of his most beloved historical incidents and transforms it in to a McDonald's product..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The execution is state-of-the-art and breathtaking. Titanic offers the full compass of courage and cowardice, and it stands as an achievement that truly is a night to remember at the movies."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Take one of history's most compelling tragedies, tell it through the lives of two engaging young lovers and show it with some of the best-ever special effects and you have a dazzling, exciting movie that is also poignant and personal."
‑ Joe Holleman, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Titanic is an awesome achievement, a traditional Hollywood epic that dazzles your eyes, breaks your heart and shivers your soul."
‑ Rod Dreher, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"A staggering film, layered with melodramatic romance, tragedy, intensity and breathtaking production design."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"While I admit the film does not impress me as much as it does most other people, there is no questioning its passion and excitement."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
