Ye old seadogs
For those with yachting, dinghy and pleasure boat experience this 18th century warship film might bring back fond memories of life on the water but for ordinarly landlubbers it's a pretty ropey film taking on water from the start.

Excellent sea story
Perhaps you're not very familiar with the sea, Cakeman? Speaking as a yachtsman, this is the best filming of nautical atmosphere I have ever seen. Usually those of us who sail are very conscious of the falsity of sea matters in films."Master and Commander.." captures shipboard life and ship handling excellently and is very faithful to the brilliant novels of Patrick O'Brien.

Weir and Crowe
I'm a big fan of Peter Weir since his early masterpieces 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'and 'Witness' - but his gift to engage with atmosphere and character falls well short here - in fact 'bilge' is the best description from ocean going terminology, I can think of.

Ships of wood, men of iron
Terrific film that captures the look, feel, sounds, humour and brutality of Nelsons navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Both funny and moving, it's such a shame there wasn't any sequals to mine the wealth of Patric O'Brians masterfull novels.

Tall Ships Battle
Very good and makes a nice change from all the reality drivle & football about. I gave it a 10, well worth it.

A masterpiece
Peter Weir has captured Napoleonic naval warfare in the way that Das Boot did for WW2 submarine warfare. Stunning action scenes - but listen on a really good hifi in the battles , astounding. Paul Bettany steals the film in a bravura performance as the scentist-come surgeon-come spy
