Nice movie. Illustrates a glimpse of the life of crewmates in British Royal Navy. The movie only lacks significant character development for supporting characters - something that makes them feels special were something happened to them.

This is a rousing sea yarn with great camera work, but it also shows comraderie and relationships in a realistic way on board a British fighting ship.

As happens sometimes but not always, I enjoyed this movie more than I liked the book it was based upon. O'Brian has written a lot of great sea tal More
