  • A Classic Movie: Friendship, Adventure, Power, etc

    I like old movies! The friendship of the captain and the doctor were superb. The crew showed fearless action but they had to witness cruel punishment. I love the details and how crew works and simply lives during this time. I love the actors and the story.

    I have actually passed on this movie several times, but recently decided to give it a chance. I’m glad I did. I like Russell Crow and he did not disappoint with his performance in this film. It was entertaining and exciting and also had some personal moments. It was worth watching and I’m glad I finally did.
  • Absolutely excellent movie

    By therealaubrey
    As someone who has read the entire M&C books series (yes, all 20) and loved every single one, this movie is a godsend. The action is tense and exciting, the characters are spot on, and if this movie doesn't have the best footage of tall ships I don't know what does. We need more films like it, simply put.

    This movie is a very good depiction of life on a british ship during the 19th century.

    In the beginning it has that boring feel to it like it is going to drag slowly on. The thing is it is setting up story for a masterful showdown.

    Good story, great acting, and quite accurate, this is movie making. It puts you there like few movies can.
  • One of the best about the sea

    By Stas Shkrebko
    That’s a great film, effectively showing those great times when Great Nations were struggling, when each of every one among all these men were loyal to that life, that They have chosen - life at sea. Great picture, even the greatest sound. Brilliant performance of actors, Russel Crow has successfully shown why are these men were so brave to be remembered in our history books. And there is also big attention into small details, like way of life and traditions at sea. Definitely, that is one the my favourite movies. It’s worth it to buy official version and add it to collection. Simply masterpiece.
