If you enjoy sea adventures set in the Napoleonic wars era with the Royal Navy, then Hornblower is a must. I found it well acted, a good story lines and a very enjoyable watch.
A film dramatisation of C.S. Forester's Classic maritime adventurer.
Spithead, Portsmouth, England, 1794…
A storm is raging in the English Channel, and a small soreboat is being lashed by squally rain.
Huddled at the stern is a pale-faced 17 year old midshipman about to begin his career in the Royal Navy. Soaked to the skin, Horatio Hornblower steps aboard his first ship, and becomes violently seasick.
But despite this uncompromising start, he is destined to become one of the most gallant and formidable figures in naval history. Plunged onto battle, action and adventure, Hornblower proves himself courageous, resourceful and decisive against the perils of the high seas.
