A Delightful Surprise

I had to give this the highest rating. It is original. I have read too many histories of the Titanic to remember them all. After 100 years, can there be anything left to say about the tragedy? Yes! The producers and directors take an entirely forgotten tale, add in drama and "history" and come up with an original contribution to Titanic lore. I added quotes around "history" because almost none of the electricians, engineers, engine room crew or technical staff survived. By necessity, much of this historical drama had to filled in. No one was left to tell the tale. A viewer, though, has the impression that the writers made much effort to be true to the characters, the situations, and the times.

This is a must-see for Titanic buffs or for those who just love tales of a slower and more adventurous time, when people could afford to take a week to cross the Atlantic, men tried to act with honor, and life was filled with a now-forgotten grace.

If you have an interest in the days of the ocean liners or the romance of a bygone era, if you want to hear a lost tale of the Titanic, if you have respect for the people who make things run (like ships' engineers) try this movie. It will not disappoint.

Great docu-drama without being overly tacky

This docu-drama focuses on the various struggles of the engineers, electricians and workers in the bowls of the Titanic. The struggles present in the film not only relate to the sinking of the ship, but also ethnic and religious tensions which were prevalent in 1912.

The best thing about this docu-drama is that it is extremely informative while being entertaining. The set is actually quite good considering its budget and that it is a release-to-TV film. Yes, there are cheesy parts to create a connection with the characters in the film, and no it does not offer the heart-wrenching story expressed in Cameron's 'Titanic'. But it sets out what is intended, to tell the untold story of those who fought and died to keep the Titanic afloat for more than an hour and a half than what was expected, saving countless lives.

The reason for giving this docu-drama an 8 is that it offers a good story, decent acting (for a release-to-TV film), good effects, and its educational aspect. Improvements in the acting and the omittance of certain unnecessary story development would have made this film even better.

A Good Tribute To The Engineers And Electricians Of Titanic

We are not talking here about a Hollywood blockbuster with mega-stars in a soap opera love story about the sinking of the Titanic. Far from it. This is really more of a behind the scenes docu-drama, offering a look at the struggles of the engineering and electrical crew on the great ship as they fight to keep Titanic afloat as long as possible so that more people can be saved, many sacrificing themselves in the process. It's a nice tribute, certainly mostly dramatized but believable, and it makes no real attempt to dazzle the viewer. It just tells the story.

It's slow starting, picking up with the Titanic undergoing sea trials before the beginning of her doomed voyage, and introducing us to the various characters, supposedly based on the testimony of one of the engineers to a tribunal set up in New York City, which is desperately trying to create heroes out of the disaster. We get a sense of the grandeur of the Titanic, but mostly we get a very believable sense of the hot and grimy work taking place deep in the bowels of the ship, as coal is shovelled and the engines are kept burning. The entire focus is on the engineering crew and a handful of electricians. We never see the rest of the crew and no mention is made of anyone else, although there are a handful of scenes including passengers. As the water pours in, you do feel the increasing desperation and your admiration for these men grows as they fight the odds.

There's a good depiction of religious tensions in this (the Protestant- Catholic rivalry in Ireland is very present) and we see the class divisions of the Titanic, not among the passengers, but among the crew themselves, who are segregated into increasingly less comfortable quarters depending on their jobs. All in all, it's a pretty straightforward account of a chaotic event, and of how people handled the chaos. (7/10)
