Storyline

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.

Goofs

When Captain Sawyer orders Grog at high noon, he shouts "We'll splice the Main Brace!" which draws a cheer from his crew. In the modern age, the phrase "Splice the Main Brace" is a celebratory call before a drink; however, during the age of sail under its original meaning, the phrase was an order to undertake one of the most difficult tasks on-board ship involving splicing the principal line controlling the rotation of the main sail. The task was long and arduous and critically important for the safety of the ship. Thus, when Captain Sawyer gave this order, his crew would have been looking at hours of work ahead of them with no reason to cheer. See more »

Hornblower with style
1 December 2001 | by (Somewhere over the rainbow) – See all my reviews

These two latest films are the continuing story of Ioan Gruffudd's Horatio Hornblower, and they follow the first four films without fault. As I have said earlier, I have yet to discover a person who has not enjoyed the series fully.

Again, acting nods go to Gruffudd, Robert Lindsay, and Jamie Bamber, yet these particular episodes are also to include Paul McGann as 2nd Lieutenant Bush, Nicholas Jones as 1st Lieutenant Buckland, and also Paul Copley and Sean Gilder in expanded roles as Hornblower's faithful shipmates. Jamie Bamber particularly did a wonderful job as poor Mr. Kennedy - such a terrible pity that he can not be found in very many movies.

I doubt you'll be disappointed with the series, I certainly wasn't, my friends weren't, my brothers weren't, and neither were my parents. They're good for all ages, so go out and see them at first opportunity!
