Along the way he encounters roiling sea battles, mutiny, plague and love, but always proves himself equal to the task. Gorgeously filmed and richly produced, A&E's Emmy®-winning adaptations of C.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Show, A Good Price June 1 2009
Format:DVD
I am a big fan of Horatio Hornblower and the Aubrey/Maturin novels. So I really looked forward to receiving the Horatio Hornblower DVD set. At $50 for 8 DVDs the purchase was a good deal for me. The DVDs did not disappoint. Although not rigidly adhering to the original storyline, the screenplay respects what I liked most about the books: adventure, character development, life at sea. The cast is excellent and the production values are good. I enjoyed the DVD extras about sailing, the navy, and seamanship. If you enjoy the books or the Master and Commander movie, then you will likely enjoy these videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just amazing! Dec 14 2006
Format:DVD
That a story with this much heart, this well acted, and this well written, could be made today is beyond belief. So much of what we see filmed today leans heavily on the ability to create CG (computer generated) landscapes and environments and very little on the story. This is a series that C.S. Forester would be happy to put his name to. A worthy tribute to his books, his hero, and to the merits of the cinema. A great DVD set. A worthy investment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hornblower the Brave Nov. 13 2010
Format:DVD
Refreshingly naive and lots of fun. Not just adventure, but a great lesson in character, watching him grow and advance as Horatio stays true to himself.

This series is quite faithful to the books. They present the life and times of British sailors in an accurate way. The acting of the cast is excellent as are the views of the places described int he books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely up to expectations Dec 25 2013

Special effects are a little on the BBC side, especially early on - ships, for example, get spotted way too close - but everything else is great, and improving.
