Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World ★★★★

I hadn't seen or hear anything about this movie before I watched it. I genuinely had no idea what to expect.

I really loved this movie. It's full of technically great film making, aside from a few dodgy CGI shots, and strong performances from all of the cast. I was particularly surprised by the talented child actors who had a substantial part to play in the film. They had to archive a wide range of emotions and successfully did so on all of them.
Jack Aubrey is the perfect type of role for Russel Crow. His acting style and strengths blend fantastically with with likable, yet arrogant characters.

I also really enjoyed the atmosphere this movie created. Everything comes together into what ends up being a really enjoyable movie.
