Aside from some gripping battles and a storm sequence to rival anything seen on screen, Peter Weir's Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World is as much about daily shipboard life during the Napoleonic era--especially the relationship between Captain Aubrey (Russell Crowe) and Doctor Stephen Maturin (Paul Bettany)--as it is about spectacle. Aubrey is a powerful figure whose experience and strength of character commands unwavering trust and respect from his crew; Crowe seems in his element naturally enough. Bettany, though, is his match on screen as Aubrey's intellectual foil. Director Weir successfully translates their relationship from novel to screen by subtly weaving in their past history and leaving viewers--whether they've read Patrick O'Brian's books or not--to do the thinking.
Although the film's special effects ate up a huge budget they never overtake the drama, with characterisation and painstaking attention to historical accuracy taking centre stage. Matching action to detail, drama to humour, and special effects to well-sketched characters, Master and Commander is a deeply satisfying big-screen experience, breathing a bracing gust of sea air into Hollywood megabuck filmmaking. --Laura Bushell

I'm guessing this is a quick before they notice deal.... I already have it but you can have some heat

Personally I never watch the boring extras so if you want the single disc edition, you can get this new on Play-trade for £0.99

I bought it from ZOverstocks on Amazon in January for 1p (excluding postage). Good as new!

this is a great movie for super cheap!

But on Play(trade) you can get it new incl. postage for less than £1 from Zoverstocks or another supplier at present (obviously will be small quantities). Play prices are always P&P free so not constrained by the fixed P&P charges that Amazon apply to marketplace traders.

Such a dull movie. However, good price if you like dull moves!

I dig this film, and I dig this deal.

Thanks I'll have a look at PlayTrade then!

Great movie

Having read the books, this was a good attempt to remain true to the writers style. The books are about the nitty gritty of real life, plus it was halfway through the series of stories and had to try and cover relationships which are developed over a number of years.

Sorry, gone on a bit, great prices on all of the posts, cheers for sharing!

I'd say this deal is the lesser of two weevils.

One of my all time favourite movies.
