Format:DVD
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take the dive . . . April 22, 2003
James Cameron hasn't made a movie since 'Titanic'. His critics have argued that since he won the oscar, he was too frightened to step behind the megaphone again - scared that he couldn't top the success of that movie. Well, the critics better start eating humble pie because his long awaited new production is bigger, better and a giant leap in the way that all of his movies have been technically on-the-button and visually amazing.
Historically, Jim Cameron movies are big. From the very nature of the stories, the budget and the talent involved in his past productions, his films have always been larger than life. However, none have been as breathtaking as this. From the opening shots of the scientific research vessel powering through the sea to the dark and gloomy abyss of that famous ghostship, Cameron takes you on a journey of discovery, sadness and wonder. The doucmentary (if I can use that phrase, as the expert cutting and general feel of the piece likens this to a big summer action flick) tells the story of Cameron's obvious obsession with the famous sinking of the Titanic. With state-of-the-art technology at his fingertips, he allows us to accompany him as he journeys to the site of the ship, discovering its secrets, and justifying myths and stories.
The 3D camerawork is fantastic. You actually feel that you are part of the action. From the soft bubbles of the ocean roaming around in front of you, to the gentle rocking of the sea giving you that 'rocking' feeling. The score and beautiful visuals are comforting, with a great symmetry running throughout the picture.
