5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best you will ever see, 27 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hornblower - The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
There are just not enough words to praise this most excellent collection of films and I for one cannot think of a better seafaring series.

The box set is a meaty collection of films almost 2hrs each in length which provides over 13hrs of fine viewing. But the quality is what makes this a classic set to own.

The fine writting, the attention to detail of the language of the time, the amazing sailing ships, the world wide locations, the inter-mixing with real events and of course the excellent acting skills of the cast, with the still young Ioan Gruffuod and the seasoned Robert Lindsay, makes this one of the best series I have ever seen.

I had to buy a second box set cause my kids kept stealing my first one.

I you have any love or interest in the exploits of this character, or if you are a lover of tales of the high seas - then you should buy this set.
