Join the underwater race to salvage the Titanic and its vital defense cargo. Adapted from Clive Cusslers international best-seller, the story follows the exploits of American special agent Dirk Pitt as he sets out to recover vital material from the Titanic which could make the US impregnable to atomic attack. The ship is down too deep for divers and the only solution is to raise it. The incredible project must be managed in absolute secrecy because of deadly interference from a rival nation. The Titanic is finally, and majestically, brought to the surface -- but the vital, rare mineral is missing...
A breathtaking adventure from beginning to end, Raise The Titanic stars Jason Robards (Once Upon A Time In The West), Richard Jordan (Dune), David Selby (Dark Shadows), Anne Archer (Fatal Attraction) and Alec Guiness (Lawrence Of Arabia).

And now, thank you Shout Factory, for treating this movie with RESPECT and not like an embarrassment or a joke. The first DVD copy of this movie I ever got was a Scandinavian release, 2.35:1 but non-anamorphic (letterboxed). The second one I got was anamorphic, but painfully cropped to 1.78:1. The third was like the first, 2.35:1 but non-anamorphic, but at least it had a few extras. Those were all PAL releases. (Oh, I also previously owned two different copies on laserdisc - both pan & scan - and one on VHS - pan & scan and EP mode.) 5 years ago I posted this comment on one of my web pages: "Now all we need is perfectly framed anamorphic, a DD5.1 mix, or how about a Blu-ray?" I honestly never thought it would happen. But here it is. I would have loved more extras, but the movie is the main thing, and here it is done right, done better than ever before, done as good as it could be.
Great picture and sound, and a great movie too, maybe you don't agree but I love it and I'm not afraid to say so!
1.) It was made before the Titanic was actually sighted on the ocean floor.
2.) It was made before CGI SF/X
3.) The book's author hated it.
However, anyone that authorizes a 55-foot----to scale----model and goes to all the trouble
of cranking the camera to 1000FPS instead of the normal 24 or 25 frames per second
needs a pat on the back.
The only fault that I found was that the water looked a little THIN. Whatever. The movie was
entertaining, and it was as good as it got... "back in the day".
This reviewer liked the movie. You will too... unless you are under thirty-years-old. It IS dated.
