It's indeed a shame that so many British films of the silent era are long gone, and maybe that fact is even more lamentable when the survivors are like this one, slow and cheap.

The actors may be good or even brilliant, as Hardwicke is still regarded as one of the theatre's greatest stars, but they are handled badly by this film, which is all standing about and moving slowly. Everything is done at a stiff, solemn pace, as if they were well aware their every move was in a tableau of greatness.

The production value is embarrassingly poor; the model ships are rather obvious,and a lot of the sea battles consist of Nelson and Hardie standing on the deck describing via title the destruction they're causing/suffering. All together more tiring than inspiring.
