Product Description

From midshipman to commander, experience the thrilling escapades of the ultimate high-seas hero with the HORATIO HORNBLOWER COLLECTOR'S EDITION, an eight-volume treasure chest of sweeping naval adventure and lavish historical drama.

Joining the British Royal Navy at the outset of the Napoleonic Wars, the enterprising Horatio Hornblower rises quickly from raw recruit to seasoned sailor, charting a course from the West Indies to the coast of Africa in the name of the Crown. 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. Forester's classic novels star Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four, Black Hawk Down) and a stellar supporting cast that includes Robert Lindsay (Wimbledon), Jamie Bamber (Band of Brothers) and Paul Copley (Queer as Folk).

The HORATIO HORNBLOWER COLLECTOR'S EDITION contains all eight feature-length Hornblower films (with many a bonus material below deck):

The Duel The Fire Ships The Duchess and the Devil The Wrong War The Mutiny Retribution Loyalty Duty

BONUS FEATURES: Exclusive Interview with Ioan Gruffudd; Filmmaker Commentary on “Loyalty” and “Duty”; 3 Bonus Programs: “England’s Royal Warships,” “Sail 2000: Aboard the Eagle,” and “The Making of Horatio Hornblower”; About C.S. Forester; Nautical Terms and Definitions; Interactive 3D Naval Cannon; Guide to Royal Warships; C.S. Forester Biography; Cast and Crew Biographies; Photo Gallery

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.

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.

This Collectors Edition of Horatio Hornblower is an 8 disk, 4 thin case in a box set. The artwork on the cover front of each case is the same, but the cover backs detail the disks and stories on each disk. A good display for collectors.

As for the stories, they are well executed for the period (Thirty Years War) when Britain ruled the seas. Both the good and bad times are told with each story and how cruel the times could be, a far cry from our lives today.

I've seen these movies before and loved them when I viewed them then, but could not justify their cost then. Now, their cost is very reasonable and well worth the expense. I highly recommend them for their wonderful story lines, their good box presentation and their reasonable cost.

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.

It's hard to determine which issue the reviewers are talking about since Amazon jumbles them all together and shows them for all items you look at...reviewers need to include UPC code, year of release, or some other identifying piece of info so we can determine which they are talking about - I want to order this but I don't want the one with the bad dvd quality.

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.
