Great Film!
5 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an opportunity to see Sir Cedric Hardwicke in a leading role. It's unfortunate that he made only two silent films because he was a natural in the medium. He didn't "overplay" as many silent film actors understandably did but played his role with a reserve and believability rare for that time. "Nelson" is excellent and a must see for anyone interested in British history (particularly naval history) or Sir Cedric. Admiral Nelson was a true hero, and Hardwicke captures the essence of the man with his realistic portrayal. One of the most moving scenes in the film comes at the end when the dying Nelson utters the words, "Thank God, I have done my duty." It is a selfless end for a noble soul, and Hardwicke pulls it off wonderfully.
