Trama del film:

Sir Edward Pellew visits Horatio Hornblower who is jail in Jamaica awaiting his trial on a charge of making a mutiny. His problems began six months earlier when he was appointed Third Lieutenant aboard the HMS Renown under the famous Captain James Sawyer. It soon becomes apparent to several of the officers, including Horatio's friend Archie Kennedy who is aboard ship as Fourth Lieutenant that the Captain is suffering from madness of some sort. He is cruel and sees conspiracies everywhere. Both Horatio and Midshipman Welland prove to be the particular objects of his wrath. The situation is not helped by an inexperience First Lieutenant who does not command the Captain's respect and a newly arrived Second Lieutenant who doesn't seem ready to challenge the Captain in any way.

    Big budgeted Brit TV-series based on the books of C.S. Forester, set
    during
    the Napoleonic wars in the beginning of the 19th century.

    Hornblower starts of as a midshipman and the series follows him as he
    climbs
    up through the ranks.

    Only the British can make such a spectacular historical series. No costs
    or
    means have been spared to recreate life at sea in those times. Not much of
    CGI or whatvever, the ships and fight are all real. When Hornblower is
    trapped on a sinking ship, there is no money for some elaborater special
    effect so they just sink it for real.
    Plots are full of twists and turns and are never predictable.
    Series is very intelligently scripted, great charactarisation and humour
    is
    provided when needed.

    It seems this series was the inspiration for US movie "Master and
    Commander"
    with Russel Crowe. It’s the same theme, same era and nearly same plot.
    If
    you are familiar with the Hornblower series , Master and commander is
    almost
    a kind of rip-off, although it is based on another bookseries.
    Master and Commander is an OK movie but it just pales in comparison with
    this simply brilliant series.
    I think this is again proof that TV is getting better then cinema.

    It is not the first adaptation of the CS Forester saga on Hornblower . In
    1952 Hollywood made a very worthy effort with "Hornblower" by cramming
    three books into one movie. Starring Gregory Peck as Hornblower and
    Virginia Mayo as the love interest. Directed by actionspecialist Raoul
    Walsh, it’s a real winner.
