The two faults one might find with this film, were to my mind strengths. For one, a lot of time is spent watching the men working. Hauling on this, keeling on that, tying, pulling, and speaking in a language that might as well be foreign. But I love that stuff.Read more ›
Summary: Rusel Crow plays ship captain Lucky Jack aboard the British Frigate Suprise. The scene is set with a battle against a French Frigate with twice the guns, twice the speed and twice the range. The Suprise is quickly defeated. The rest of the movie follows the relentless quest to catch the French ship and get revenge (as well as completing orders). Tons of crew interaction, tons of man vs man, tons of man vs the elements.
The Good: Pretty much everything. This is the best Privateer movie I have ever seen. The acting was award worthy. The cast was perfect. The story was great. You got right into it and forgot about reality. The effects were so good you forgot they were effects, heck I am just assuming there was some digital work done in there, maybe not. Heck to quote a friend: "It's all good but the bad parts" which you can see below.
The Bad: The DVD didn't have much on it besides the Movie. Just the usual commentaries and one of those Made to Make You Go See the Movie featurettes. The movie ends without the story quite coming to a close which was a bit of a disapointment. Not one of those There Will Be a Sequal kind of things, but it leaves the end open.
The Ugly: Hmmm.... I just kept thinking of the Doctor as Hyde from League of Extrodinary Gentlemen and thinking Pipin looks odd tall with huge sideburns. Really not a poblem... but I had to think of something. Oh actually - there is a lot of realistic gore in this, it's all fitting with the movie but as Pandora said at the time "the begining put me off my popcorn"
Overall: I really enjoyed this. This is probably the best movie I have seen in a long time. There isn't much bad to say, pretty much everything is good.Read more ›
into one incredibly well done story. This movie will please history buffs who wish they could have been there, men who want swash-buckling adventure, women who want to see a man handle a violin bow as deftly as he does a sword, aspiring entomologists and naturalists who wish they could have stowed away on the Beagle and anyone who wants to experience the hardships of ship-board life from the comfort of thier easy chair.
The commaraderie and gentle humor of Lucky Jack Aubrey and Dr. Stephen Maturin make this movie as much about friendship and loyalties as it does to naval tactics and duty.
Although there are a few scenes that make the movie unsuitable for the younger crowd, there is nothing here that would make a grandma blush or cringe. The movie also contains a wonderful soundtrack of concertos for violin and cello. If I could take only ten movies with me to the cottage, this one would be in the suitcase.

Good movie, somewhat historical, gives me visual of the 17-1800s when battles were fought at sea. Men worked with what they had at the time. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Lynda
