Raise the Titanic (1980)

Made at a cost of $40 million, this big-budget bomb failed to duplicate the success of the popular novel on which it is based. Its premise, that a secret weapon was hidden on the ill-fated Titanic when it went down, is never fully explained. But even more damaging are the film's expensive but cheesy special effects--awful miniatures that won't fool many viewers. Still, the film features a strong cast: Jason Robards is the crooked sea captain behind the effort to salvage the ship many years later, Alec Guinness plays an ancient mariner who was on the liner when it went down, and Ann Archer is a newspaper reporter.

Marc's Comments:

I have not seen this movie, and don't think I will, the reviews are not good.
