Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World - Whatever the Cost

Posted on: October 29, 2003 | Views: 46 | Comment

Captain Aubrey and his friend Dr. Stephen Maturin, surgeon on the HMS Surprise, discuss the captain's duty and wisdom -- or is it sheer pride and ego? -- in continuing to hunt the French ship Acheron, which is larger than the Surprise.

A British captain whose career aspirations seem to have hit a sandbar finds himself on a creaky ship delivering mail in the Mediterranean during the Napoleonic Wars. Suddenly, he's got the opportunity to defend the dignity of the Empire itself, but his bark has been damaged and his crew has suffered at the hands of enemy fire. Will he turn back and lick his wounds or move forward toward glory?
