Editorial Reviews

Walt Disney Pictures and James Cameron, the Academy Award(R)-winning director of TITANIC (1997), present the groundbreaking cinematic achievement GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS. Joined by his personal friend Bill Paxton (TITANIC) and a team of the world's foremost historical and marine experts, Cameron journeys back to the site of his greatest inspiration -- the legendary wreck of the TITANIC. During the voyage, you will explore inside the entire ship, deck by deck, room by room, encountering mysteries that have remained hidden for almost a century. Revolutionary underwater robots were designed and built solely for the purpose of allowing the explorers to peer deep into the remains of the once-great ship and bring those surreal and haunting images back to the surface world. Loaded with unseen footage, revealing interviews, and innovative DVD bonuses, this unprecedented motion picture event is a must-own companion for anyone who loves TITANIC.

In Ghosts of the Abyss, James Cameron returns to the watery grave of the Titanic in an effort to let the ill-fated ship tell the story of her own demise. Equipped with space age technology and twin little exploratory robots designed specifically for exploring the Titanic, Cameron and his team manage to take us into rooms unseen by human eye since April 1912. Not only do you get the theatrical version of this documentary film (albeit without the 3-D experience offered by IMAX), you also get an extended version featuring an extra half hour of material. Most people would just watch the extended version, but I wanted to get a feel for the difference the extra footage makes, so I watched both versions back to back. I was actually rather amazed to discover that the extended version is ten times better than the original - basically, all of the best material was left out of the theatrical release.
I have to admit I found Bill Paxton, the de facto narrator of the film, rather annoying at times. As he freely admits, he isn't really qualified for this type of deep-sea mission, and his giddiness and nervous humor tend to grow old pretty quickly. Like most people, I just wanted to see footage of the wreckage, not a chronicling of Paxton's anxiety over traveling to the ocean floor. I did enjoy the glimpses provided of the other crew members on the expedition, however - they are an interesting assortment of scientists, filmmakers, historians, and Russian seamen.
Ghosts of the Abyss does succeed in showing Titanic in all of her mysterious glory, and the underwater footage makes this film well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosts of the Abyss May 31, 2003
Ghosts of the Abyss is a documentary filmed in 3D for IMAX theaters. It takes you down to the actual Titanic site at the bottom of the ocean. It was done by James Cameron, who directed the Titanic movie, but this is pure exploration. They take you to the rooms and places and show you glimpses of the people who were there. The 3D is really what makes it. You feel like you are there. I really liked the way they would merge computer animation with the image to give you an idea of what it used to look like that enables you to really see and appreciate what it looks like now. If you're into the history of the ship, be sure to check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars An In Depth Look Inside the Titanic July 26, 2004
This documentary was exactly what I was looking for: Going back inside the Titanic, deeper and farther than anyone else has ever been before. Anyone expecting another movie about the ill fated ocean liner will be disappointed; this is a Discover Channel-ish documentary. But if you're looking for some new shots and recent infromation about this ship, this is your DVD.

James Cameron, along with author Charles Pellegrino, and actor Bill Paxton take viewers back two miles beneath the North Atlantic to the Titanic's resting place. You'll see woodwork, previously assumed to be lost forever; beautiful lead glass windows, still intact; the staterooms of Molly Brown, Bruce Ismay, and Captain Smith; various cargo holds; as well as previously unexplored regions in the 3th Class areas of the ship. I especially liked when Cameron would frame indistinguishable areas of the ship with how they looked on Titanic's maiden voyage.

If you are into undersea exploration and archeaology, or are a Titanic buff, this is definitely worth looking into. Also check out Charles Pellegrino's book, "Ghosts of the Titanic," for other details the movie wasn't able to cover. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Chance To See The Unsinkable Ship... July 25, 2003
Being my first time watching a movie in IMAX format, I was truly blown away from beginning to end with this movie. While watching Cameron's masterpiece "Titanic" was chilling from the beginning to the end, his work on "Ghosts of the Abyss" was all that and a little more. Being an avid Titanic buff now for over 15 years, it was wonderful to finally see even more of the beautiful "Wonder Ship" that has enthralled generations for over 90 years. Anyone else will be hard-pressed to get this deep into the ship and out-do Cameron and his work, considering the rapid deterioration of the vessel. We will never again get the opportunity to see into this Edwardian time capsule the same way again, and we have James Cameron to thank for this awe-inspiring ride.
