We finally saw the DVD last night. My note to a friend afterwards:
Now, remember that I am not a moviegoer.
Master Commander is utterly and magnificently strong, powerful, wonderful, awesome and honest. It is a maritime epic, splendid naval battle, and Galapagos naturalist adventure all in one. I love tall ships and this exceeded my hopes and expectations in every way. I am humbled. I can hardly wait to watch it again. Russell Crowe should be knighted. My faith in movies as entertainment got a big and badly needed boost today.
