Synopsis

Life at sea is hard enough, but when you add war to the mix, your very existence is on the line. During the Napoleonic Wars, the HMS Surprise and the French warship the Acheron are caught up in a battle of cat and mouse off the coast of South America. Captain "Lucky Jack" Aubrey pushes his men and makes them believe they can win the battle against the bigger, more powerful French ship. A captivating adventure film, that spends as much time on intelligent character development as it does on set-pieces.
