Ghosts of the Abyss is an amazing documentary. It is about James Cameron and Bill Paxton who travel to the final undersea resting place of the ill-fated ship of dreams, the Titanic. Bill Paxton did an awesome job narrating the film. James Cameron also did a great job directing the movie. I enjoyed it because of my interest in this magnificent ship.

Brilliantly made film with some excellent footage and great technology in use.

Some interesting insight into the Titanic wreck, but it's a bit too Hollywood in its production to take as a serious documentary.

Really pointless didn't see or hear anything new complete waste of time easily could of been made and show at the end of the titanic movie in a 3 minute segment really was not needed

Ghosts of The Abyss is an interesting continuation of James Cameron's exploration of the Titanic wreckage. Complete with Bill Paxton, this documentary feels like it would have been better suited as a special feature to compliment the 1997 movie. Although it's a bit lackluster for a feature film, it is a fascinating viewing experience. Many of the shots are breathtaking, especially when superimposed with CGI images of the original ship and passengers. There's a surreal feeling to this film, as the dates of this exploration overlapped with the events of September 11th, 2001. As the crew was focused on this historic tragedy, another one was taking place. I enjoyed this for what it is, but I can't give it a very high rating. Sadly, there's just not a whole lot to it.

The emotional effects of the tragedy still remains like the wreck, but Cameron's journey to the real setting of his so-called masterpiece managed to be better than "Titanic" (as I expected it to be) because of the amazing (and sometimes somewhat creepy) underwater visuals and adding scenes of the ship's old days, serving as a prequel, sequel and remake.

Very interesting film to watch. It's cool and amazing to view the Titanic like that.

Valla estos críticos si son imbéciles, es un documental, no una pelicula ¬¬ no sean pendejos. MEH! Es interesante la verdad, pero en ciertas partes llega aburrir, ya que aveces en vez de enfocarse en el barco, se pierde el tiempo en otra cosa. Pero es, o bueno fue un buen documental ya que Cameron lo hizo con "Titanic: Los Últimos Misterios"- Discovery Channel (2005) y "Titanic: la Ultima Palabra"- NATGEO (2012). Aun así, la forma en como Bill Paxton y el resto del equipo narran la historia del barco, compensan ciertos fallos. Aunque claro, con los nuevos descubrimientos, el documental ya no estas exacto en la forma de como se muestra el hundimiento del Titanic.

Could be worth watching. Will find and devour with my eyes!

A good documentary, certainly for the big screen but not very informative. In IMAX 3D it was quite a sight and though it still packs a punch in 2D it loses something.

I find that on repeat viewings it still carries an emotional edge, if only slight but still something to note. It's certainly worth a watch if only to make up your mind.

Bastante interesante, me gusto :)

Very cool documentary about James Cameron's further exploration of the Titanic wreck. I would've liked it to be a little longer. But, the discoveries, and even the drama of failing equipment keeps it fresh. I recommend it, especially if you like "Titanic".

Cameron is forever associated with the fateful ship, and it was high time he moved on.
