Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though Stanwyck and Clifton Webb make for an unlikely married couple, this b/w Oscar-winning 1953 melodrama about the sinking of the famous liner is worth seeing."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Manages to tell its tale in a compact 98 minutes. That's nearly 100 minutes less than it took James Cameron, and there's something to be said for that."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Not as big as James Cameron's computer-generated bonanza, but it's nonetheless impressive."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"...a good motion picture despite its shallow, often sentimental overtones."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Exciting, well-acted version of the infamous voyage"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"fair enough"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
