Master and Commander-Far Side of the World (Review)

I was excited about the release and saw the movie on the first day. Unfortunately, my review would be less stellar than yours. I did not think it was a bad movie, as sailing movies go. I just did not think it was a great movie. The discontinuity, for me, took away from the plot. There was too much information, the ship, the crew the fighting, the islands, from my viewpoint, they would have done better, focusing on one point rather than diluting each of those story points by trying to include all of them.

Once again, not a bad movie but the hype outweighed the movie.

On a scale of 1-3: 1.75, enjoyable, Crowe was good.
