a really great movie

by Elaine on 12/6/2008

I saw this movie twice and my grandson loved it--so i got 2 of these with two Master and Commander gqames for 2 boy birthdays--10 and 11--thought it would be a change from the usual electronic stuff

Great old fashion seafaring adventure

by drb on 2/12/2009

I saw this in the theater and really enjoyed it. It's good to watch a movie that actually has a story. We have Patrick O'Brian to thank for that. Plus real actors who can say more than one sentence of dialog before the camera cuts away. And not so many CGI effects so it will withstand the test of time.
