Captain Horatio Hornblower R.N.

  • Film
0 Love It
CS Forester's seafaring epic of the 19th century adapted as a surging tribute to 'bravery', to long-gone 'leaders', and as much a study of the heroic spirit as an action romp. Peck is Hornblower, Mayo the initially ill-fated love interest, and Walsh seems more interested in their inner life and emotional vulnerability, which makes for an oddly limpid (but often quite beautiful) and non-dynamic work from such a primal force.

I have seen the movie a couple of times and it still feel as fresh the first time. With Pecks Hornblower as a well session officer who has the trust of his men and officers under his command, but when a woman comes on board Hornblower attention are sent to the high seas. Good movie, if there is going to be a remake then i cannot wait to see who they cast as Hornblower.
