This set is a wonderful follow up to the previous Hornblower adventures. In "Loyalty" we find Horatio dealing with spies and a French port that is well fortified. His capture doesn't keep him and the crew from completing their mission and saving the British Fleet once again.

In "Duty" we find Horatio taking a wife, and then off to sea he goes again. This time in search of a missing ship. Once again he must best Napolean's fleet and army. The return of the cast we loved in the previous episodes, aged a little along with Horatio, they are great to watch in action. Horatio returns to England finding good and bad news.

Great quality as previous DVDs in this series. Includes same features as other Hornblower DVDs. Any fan of seafaring movies like "Damn the Defiant" and "Captain Horatio Hornblower" will love this set.

The movies were wonderful and the ending allowed the series to finish. This is an exceptional series and we loved these last two movies.

The only thing we didn't like was the "Extras" for both of these last two movies. These were just some stills of shots in the movies and didn't add to the package at all. In fact, after watching all the previous movies and viewing their "Extras", we were very disappointed. It seemed like a rush job to get them to market and not quality.

Ever since this program aired on TV - I've looked forward to adding this to my collection. Contrary to other reviews I'm not disappointed.

Another of A&E's made for TV versions of the Hornblower saga. This time Hornblower and the Hotspur are divided into two films and have quite a bit of new material added. I love the Hornblower sagas of adventure, loyalty, seafaring and duty. I don't really appreciate adding so much of the spies, land battles, and nonsense that the TV producers have included. Perhaps their production is better suited to filming on land. Shipboard life would undoubtedly be hard to film. However, one of the best parts of the Hornblower adventures is the life on board a navy ship at sea, with all its crowding, smells, hardship, poor food, worse water, and risk of death. It's a rollicking good yarn, and does have the flavor of Hornblower on the Hotspur, but leaves out more than it adds. Good film, but not as good as if they had stuck more to the original adventures.

Format: DVD
"Loyalty" and "Duty" are the titles of the latest two episodes of the A&E Hornblower saga. These episodes are loosely based upon C.S. Forester's novel "Hornblower and the Hotspur" which is one of the very best Hornblower novels. For those who are unaquainted with this series, Captain Horatio Hornblower is a fictional British naval officer set in the Napoleonic Wars period circa 1800. The novels are wonderful. So is this series by A&E.
In this latest production by A&E we see Hornblower become master of his own ship, with Lieutenant Bush and many of the earlier characters in the series at his side. In my opinion all of the leading actors, and for that matter the supporting ones, turn in exemplary performances. Ioan Griffudd continues to be magnificent as Captain Hornblower, and Robert Lindsay is fabulous as Admiral Pellew. Watch the series--I'm not too lavish with my praise--these guys really do a bang-up job. They do not over-act, and they are very authentic.
The effects in this series, while perhaps not as lavish as might be found in a big-budget movie, are nonetheless superb, and no improvement is needed in my opinion. A&E does a great job with the sets, costumes, and effects.
"Duty" and "Loyalty" in common with the rest of this series, depart significantly from the storyline of the novel ("Hornblower and the Hotspur") upon which these episodes are based. Now, I am a fanatical Hornblower afficianado, but I am here to say that this is OK--the A&E stories are excellent, and will not offend the Hornblower purist. Every time I felt that the story was departing completely from the original novel, it would suddenly revert to the novel's storyline.

Format: DVD
For the third set of Horatio Hornblower adventures the producers have returned to following author C.S. Forester's stories more closely. This time the the pair of two-hour made for television movies, "Loyalty" and "Duty," each stand on their own, although they occupy the same period of time, when Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd) is in charge of H.M.S. "Hotspur," and war with the France of Napoleon Bonaparte starts up again.
In "Loyalty," Hornblower and the "Hotspur" are dispatched to the shores of France to see if Napoleon intends to keep the peace. This mission comes as a welcomed relief to Hornblower, who has been idling on half-pay for a year, during which time he has captured the eye of Maria Mason (Julia Sawalha), the daughter of his landlady. However, what Hornblower does not know is that there is at least one traitor aboard his ship. If that was not a big enough problem, Hornblower has to deal with Styles being his new steward.
"Duty" begins with Hornblower being sick to his stomach for a different reason that finding his sea legs for once and then being dispatched on the "Hotspur" to find a missing ship. Along the way he picks up a young couple who were trying to get ashore. The husband has a French accent but claims to be Swiss, while the wife is an American. Clearly there is more to their story than they are telling. Meanwhile, once again Hornblower stumbles across one of Napoleon's plans against England and has to take matters into his own hands.
Once again in addition to the grand adventures during the Napoleonic wars, the chief attraction of these Hornblower stories are the relationships between the characters.
