that would make sense since the American Navy consisted of mostly a few superbly built 44 gun frigates. The ship in the movie was suposebly built in Boston. I wonder why Hollywood changed the nationality of the ship to French? Maybe it is not politically correct to have a British ship wip an American one . As history goes, the USS Constitution captured and burned the HMS Java off the cost of Brazil in December 1812.

It seems we all crave action. Another movie that is like Master and Commander is the Last Samurai. It was another long movie that a wealth of history with a few great battle scenes.

I liked Master and Commander. I thought it was better than The Last Samurai. Cause he was with the Japanese what like two years when he learned the ways of the Samurai? Usually it takes decades for someone to learn the ways of a Samurai.

I like any movie set in the days of wooden ships and iron men. I gave it an O.K.

Well, what do people think of Master and Commander?
I'd have to agree with your wife. Haha.
I actually thought it was OK, but I wouldn't go out and buy it.
