5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Stephen Pletko TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 22 2004
Format: DVD
=====>
Note: This review has been written from a city with the following position on Earth:
LATITUDE: (43 degrees 2 minutes North)
LONGITUDE: (81 degrees 9 minutes West)
This 3 hour 20 minute movie (based on the 1995 book by Dava Sobel) that was first on television in 1999 (and transferred to two 100 minute DVDs in 2000) is "a sweeping epic that takes place in two worlds." The two worlds are the eighteenth century of John Harrison (1693 to 1776) and the twentieth century of Lieutenant Commander Rupert Gould (1890 to 1948). This movie chronicles the life of Harrison who builds sea clocks and alternates his story with Gould's who restores Harrison's clocks and at the same time restores his own health. (Note that most of Sobel's book {that has the same title as this movie} is concerned with Harrison's story while only four pages in the last chapter of her book are devoted to Gould's story.)
The beginning of this movie is narrated and lasts less than three minutes. However, this narration is probably the most important part of this movie because it tells the viewer about latitude and longitude, indirectly how to calculate longitude, how time is related to longitude, and why longitude was so difficult to measure "during most of human history." (How to determine latitude was discovered centuries before this.)
I felt this narration was adequate but it did not mention one simple and important fact:
In 24 hours, the Earth spins 360 degrees on its axis from east to west. (Thus, as the narrator states, four minutes of time equals one degree of longitude east or west.

How things were invented years ago and were so large they were almost impossible to transport anywhere. This is truly a story about never giving up on what you believe despite the odds.

Format: DVD
The TV series' addition of a shadow story is unpardonable. If I'd
realized before I ordered this DVD version how much the stupid
gratuitous 20th century story would get in the way I would not have
bought it.

By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 10 2013
Format: DVD
This production fills in a few gaps in the book; well researched gaps.

It is 1714 and due to a need to practically calculate longitude at sea a prize of 20,000 pounds (approximately five million dollars at this time) is offered.

This production takes the story and starts out with one paragraph on Rupert Gould (Jeremy Irons) and builds a parallel story about the watch inventor and the watch restorer.

I will not go into detail of the two parallel worlds as you will want to watch the story unfold. However you will not be disappointed in the sets or the characters and soon you will find yourself becoming part of both worlds.

The DVD has a great extra of the making of the movie and what they are trying to provide.

By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER on Aug. 25 2013
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a fascinating true story encompassing two hundred years and based on a best-selling book. During the 18th century, the British parliament offered an unprecedented cash award to anyone who could devise a way to determine longitude at sea.This wonderful, informative epic is superbly acted out by Michael Gambon and Jeremy Irons. Definitely worth watching.

I've read the book and the movie runs close to the historic account. I first watched the movie on History Channel a number of years ago and wanted a copy of it for my library

Longitude is a brilliant story. Not only does it highlight the problem with obtaining true longitude without an accurate timepiece but it also highlights the social standards when Harrison was makingvhis clock. It also brings an additional story with the restoring of the four clocks Harrison made and the effect it had on the restorer's personal life

This is two movies in one, two passionate individuals, two centuries apart and both focused on a time piece that revolutionized sea travel. The movie is a little long but well worth the time.
