'Titanic 3D' Reviews Say It's Worth a Second Look (VIDEO)

Titanic 3D

I'd like to see a show of hands of anyone who didn't fall in love with Leonardo DiCaprio circa 1997. Anyone? No? Didn't think so. Titanic skyrocketed the careers of DiCaprio and Kate Winslet while becoming one of the most well-known movies ever. Now it's 15 years later and we're still asking for more -- which is why Titanic 3D is hitting theaters nationwide today. Clearly, we just can't let go ... we'll never let go.

Directed by James Cameron, Titanic is historical fiction at its best (for the three of you who have yet to see it). The story follows Jack and Rose as they board the luxurious ship and fall in love despite their differences. When the ship hits an iceberg and starts slowly sinking, we find out if love is enough to keep them together. (Cue Celine Dion song now.)

I think this movie is amazing on its own, but in 3D? It has to be even better, right? Well, let's see what the critics have to say. Check out the Titanic 3D movie reviews here:

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone:

The 3D intensifies Titanic. You are there. Caught up like never before in an intimate epic that earns its place in the movie time capsule.

 Christy Lemire, Associated Press:

While the romantic first half of the film remains more emotionally compelling, the disastrous second half has become even more visually dazzling.

 Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal:

This version has deepened and enriched a film that was already rich in emotions and remarkable for its depth of detail.

 Claudia Puig, USA Today:

The story remains the same, but the dizzying visuals are even more spectacular and the tension ratchets up several notches with the film's re-booting to 3-D

Sasha Brown-Worsham, The Stir:

As a viewer, you feel more involved and right there on the ship. While it does take something away from the romance, it brings attention to the true horror of what happened. With the 100-year anniversary around the corner, that is kind of an important thing.

Wow! It sounds like this is a must-see. Take a look at the trailer and see if it brings back any memories:
