i will never bad mouth this film!
Admittedly, this film lends itself more to girls as it does contain a major element of romance. Even so, that does not deny the fact that this film is brilliant in every way.
Leonardo Dicaprio is the perfect actor for the role. He is gorgeous and very easy to fall in love with which allows us to empathise with Rose's (Kate Winslet) feelings for him. In having to very likeable characters we are able to follow their story as if we were involved and therefore become more involved with the narrative.
There are several moments in this film which highlight the strength of the love these to feel for one another, which after seeing numerous times, never fails to imprint an impression.
The nobility of those characters we see is truely touching. It captures the impending doom that a lot people would have to have accepted due to their impossible chance of escape. The old time saying of "a captain goes down with his ship" was emphasised and provided a very brave sense of admiration towards him.
The horrors of the inequality that certain passengers were treated in was really highlighted and created a massive sympathy factor as well as aiding our knowledge to the importance of the social hierarchy at the time.
The whole film leads up to the compelling tragedy of an end in which we see the death of our hero. Kate Winslet's performance is brilliant in mimicking the upset we feel at this.
This film gives us a more in depth view of the panic, disaster and disparity that would have been present during the Titanic's sinking. As well as this we are shown the power and strength that true love can behold.
Being one who does show my emotions much, i feel that if any film can make me cry as much as i did at this one, then they have created a film with a very strong impact which will be remembered as a classic throughout time. Brilliant.
