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.
Iona's performance is brilliant!
A visual feast, action packed!
Great plots, realistic human relationships.
Will be enjoyed many times!
