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

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) 8/10

Rousing old fashioned adventure film about a British Naval Captain who relentlessly pursues a French Naval ship during the Napoleonic Wars. Russell Crowe is a standout as the brash Captain who is ferocious in his pursuit of the enemy but compassionate towards his crew. Superbly directed by Peter Weir with excellent production values from top to bottom.
