Editorial Reviews

The action and excitement doesn t get any better than this: THE ADVENTURE FILMS COLLECTION, a 12-part DVD set, dramatically brings to life some of the most fascinating and courageous individuals in all of history and literature. In these six sumptuous, feature-length A&E favorites Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor, Horatio Hornblower, Longitude, The Lost Battalion, Napoleon, and Shackleton flesh-and-blood characters use their spirit, curiosity, derring-do, and cleverness to battle seemingly insurmountable obstacles and endure until they triumph. Such world-class actors as Aidan Quinn, Kelsey Grammer, Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Kenneth Branagh, Rick Schroder, Isabella Rossellini, Ioan Gruffudd, and Gerard Depardieu give powerful performances of struggle and success amid the battlefields of the American Revolution and World War I, the high seas of the Napoleonic Wars, the frozen wastes of Antarctica, and the scientific community of the eighteenth century.

Based on the popularity of the Horatio Hornblower series alone I would have thought this set would enjoy great sales and fabulous reviews! The third party prices for this collection are a steal, especially considering the caliber of programs included! Napoleon, Benedict Arnold, Shackleton, The Lost Battalion, Longitude, and of course Horatio Hornblower. You can't go wrong with this 14 disk set beautifully produced by the A&E (Arts & Entertainment) Channel.

This is most certainly a must have collection for even the casual A&E fan. This set contains six of A&E's best efforts at a modest price. A purchase from a third party source makes it a steal! What a cost effective way to begin your own A&E collection.

This package is worth having as part of every home movie collection. I loved the Longitude movie and learned a lot with it. Still have to see the rest, some twenty hours of masterpieces!

This is a great collection. You get three Hornblower movies from A&E plus the miniseries Napoleon, The Lost Battallion, Benedict Arnold, Shackelton and my favorite of the bunch Longitude. All in an attractive sturdy case. Many hours of great programming for a very reasonable price.

SO MANY awesome adventure stories, all intelligently told and fun as hell.

I don't usually get into this sort of stuff, but MAN, this stuff is freaking mind-blowingly fun. SO MUCH MORE ENTERTAINING THAN the latest predictable, flashy Johnny Depp crapfest or Michael Bay brain cell-icide.

Best part, every movie is *very* family friendly. The Horatio Hornblower series is SO much more rewarding than Pirates of the Caribbean.

Educational and entertaining. The Shackleton adventure and the Horatio Hornblower videos were favorites. In fact, we ordered the rest of the A&E Hornblower series. The pleasant surprise was the account of the creation of an accurate timepiece for sea travel in 'Longitude' - what a great story. Benedict Arnold was interesting from his perspective and 'The Lost Battalion' was heart-wrenching but also very good. Least favorite - Napolean. Overall, a great value; highly recommended!
