Do you remember Raise the Titanic? This feature film was originally released in 1980 and has now been brought back to life on Blu-ray and DVD. It is completely different than the more recent Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
Raise the Titanic is based on a novel by Clive Cussler. It takes place in modern times. A rare mineral is needed for military purposes and the only place this mineral happens to exist is onboard the sunken Titanic.
This is an adventure movie that isn’t trying to be historically accurate. It is purely for entertainment. I had completely forgotten about this movie, but now remember seeing it back in the day. It isn’t a masterpiece by today’s standards, but I found it to be fabulously fun in a cheesy, retro sort of way. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
