This movie was a welcome change for me in these times of computer generated this, that and the other... Don't get me wrong - that technology is terrific, and it does have its place... but this was... human. These sailors' vintage nautical lives were... captivating (albeit incredibly trying and difficult). I guess I'm envious. This 'David vs. Goliath' (brains vs. braun) tale was well written, and Russell Crowe is at his best. He was born for this role. Good musical score, also. Great flick.

This is definitely a 'guy' movie, but highly entertaining none-the-less. Tends to dwell on things like doing surgery on yourself (please!) and other blood and guts scenes which slow down a great story. So unnecessary and detracting. And it is a great story as it touches on the human spirit very deeply. It is beautiful to watch.
Russell Crowe is an excellent Jack Aubrey, it seems to be a natural, fun fit for this actor. I would like to see another Patrick O'Brien story made into film.
