Review: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

Well, a bit too far for my taste. The story is non-existent. The dialogue that fills the gaps between the action sequences is a bold effort to deepen the story, but fails miserably by being too superficial and often about the same subjects. The erratically directed action scenes and the casual acting is definitely not Oscar worthy. It’s more like a tub filled with not-interesting characters floating around aimlessly. With no drive behind this movie, it slowly halts to a speed of barely one knot. Probably only suits people who really dig being shouted at with nautical terms.6-.
