From Back Cover:

-Chicago Tribune

The fate of an empire rests on the shoulders of one man. Academy Award winner Russell Crowe commands the screen in this spectacular, high-seas adventure directed by Peter Weir.

After a sneak attack by a French warship inflicts severe damage upon his vessel, Captain "Lucky" Jack Aubrey (Crowe) is torn between duty and friendship as he embarks on a thrilling, high-stakes chase across two oceans to capture or destroy th enemy at any cost.

-Ebert & Roeper

My Comments:

Though it is well acted and beautifully filmed, the subject matter just doesn't hold my interest as well as some of Crowe's other films do.
