Raise the Titanic
release year:1980 genre:action/adventure viewing setting:home VHS, 10/17/98 what I expected:didn't know what I got:a dated adventure film
synopsis:The U.S. government needs a rare mineral, and the only place they can find some is in the sunken Titanic.
impressions:It was fairly entertaining - a good mix of espionage and adventure, the kind of adventure that you can only get when you tackle a task like bringing the Titanic back up to the surface. It was reasonably well-paced, and there were some good sets of the ship, both sunken and surfaced.
acting:Fairly good, no comments here.
final word:A bit dated (especially given the success of the 1998 movie) but definitely watchable.
