Performance

The film is grand, and applied the use of special effects that became the standard for film making today. However, the DVD IS NOT enhanced for 16x9 televisions. Meaning, it must be watched in 4:3 mode, letterboxed. Quite a disappointment if you have a home theatre projector as I do (Optoma H30 - great piece of equipment by the way!).

Reviews
ReviewSource Rolling Stone
Review ...confirms James Cameron as a world-class filmmaker... the greatest underwater adventure ever filmed... It's also something even more unexpected: a love story of shattering impact... Cameron is uncannily successful at creating a mounting feeling of claustrophobia.

ReviewSource Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
Review Spectacular underwater saga about an oil-rig crew that gets involved in a perilous mission to rescue a sunken nuclear sub. Better as underwater adventure than futuristic sci-fi, with a couple of crises too many, but still a fascinating, one-of-a-kind experience.
