Not bad not too bad. Takes a bit to get into it. It does not just jump out and grab you. ( It is a BBC series they dont have too. They get all their money from the Government) That being said once you get into it. it turns into a very good story. the acting is very good.

I enjoyed this DVD but it appeared to have been made in the 60's not in 2005. Very low budget - Virtually no CGI & no effort made to actually show what it might've looked like being at sea on a very long voyage where people spend hours looking over the rail at the wide expanse of the ocean. All such scenes were obviously filmed in a harbor on an anchored ship with the camera held high to avoid the tourists' heads. While the acting was top notch the story line had some serious holes in it. Our hero pounces passionately on the best looking female passenger early on, then kicks her to the curb immediately upon finishing with her & she fades gracefully into the background. Yeah, women scorned are always graceful & resigned. And especially the last scene where our hero sees the ship ablaze from a hillside manor & has time to run down to the shore, grab a boat - row out to the ship & climb aboard to find the first officer & still has time to save himself but the seasoned first officer (who was aboard the ship & could've just jumped overboard any time) perishes. Really lame. Jared Harris played a very believable sea captain.

While I am a big Cumberbatch fan, I feel this movie is a waste of his talents. Slow moving and dark, dark in nature. Watched it w 2 adult females and they both refused to watch it to its end.

Depressing story although great acting. Not anywhere near the quality story of Horatio Hornblower. We like period pieces and the costuming and settings were realistic to a fault.

On and Off enjoyment. Some good acting, yet couldn't wait for it to be over. Nice costuming for the period piece and depiction of life at sea in a different century.

Iin was great, i couldn't believe how bad the ships were in that day. But overall I liked it very much, love Benedict , he's great and funny, he's also very good in Sherlock Holmes series.

If the story is anywhere close to reality in the 18th century anyone traveling from England to Australia is out of their mind.

Quite enjoyable. Cumberbatch does a great job. Interesting clash of social classes and expectations on a long voyage to Australia

I totally love the story, but the cd quality is horrible. Out of focus and fuzzy/blurry. I will try the blue ray version and see if that is any better.
