Does Master and Commander offer the most accurate depiction of early 19th Century naval warfare? Let us know what you think in the comments below 👇

Master and commander is amazing but the boarding actions is imo suffering extremely from Hollywood Syndrom. Suddenly waaaay too many guys on both sides and casualties are unbelievably high yet in the end don’t matter too much.

I'd watch an full commentary from Dan Snow for the full length of Master and Commander. I watch it yearly, just such a great movie on all accounts.
MysticSaxophone Anos atrás
@Bingo Bongo Too many guys compared to what? My limited memory tells me that these Napoleon era warships could house up to 700 men? I know the HMS Surprise in the film is depicted after a smaller vessel but it should easily hold several hundred men still.

Hornblower series does best for naval in my opinion, especially with Robert Lindsay portraying Captain Pellew. Also think Sharpe series better than the infantry movies.

@Derek Brown seniority meant that eventually you would make admiral even if you never went back to sea and was an admiral of the white but merit or favour would jump you up the scale. Seniority on your post date is useless when a junior whose father is an MP has you appointed commodore. Nelson was younger than his peers.

@Leo Arc Yes. In the army soldiers would just desert which was mostly a rounding error but mutiny not only would cost a lot of troops it also takes out a very expensive ship, its cargo and the mutineers are very likely to go pirate costing you even more expensive ships and cargo. The navy was very much the part of your forces you didn't do any fuckery.

Knowledgeable and doesn't completely take the piss out of inaccuracies like a wet blanket. When Dan says something like "It's exciting!" as a dismissal, it's still respecting the work as trying to be an artwork even if it's inaccurate. Very cool guy. Optimistic, even.

The battle scenes on *Waterloo* involved some 17000 soldiers and cavalrymen of the Soviet Red Army. There was a joke about the film's director being in command of the 7th largest army in the world. An amazing piece of filmmaking.

​@RFish Somebody can contradict me but guessing 1970 the Soviets were close enough to 1945 glory of defeating Hitler made "Waterloo" seem ideologically sound. Don't fuck with Russia or this is what happens. Lot of 1945 Red Army soldiers still alive, wanted to glory in their historical importance?

One of his critiques about the slowness of fire in the woods for The Patriot was actually addressed by Benjamin Martin in the instruction to his sons. He had preloaded 5 rifles. 3 for him one for each son. Each son took a shot and then the younger loaded for the older back to back. Martin staggered 3 separate guns and actively reloaded another before engaging in short range with a side arm and fighting hand to hand v unarmed and reloading opponents. It’s quite genius writing.

Master and Commander - cinematic masterpiece. It’s such a generally forgotten film because it came out the same year as both the 1st Pirates of the Caribbean, and the final Lord of the Rings, which both massively overshadowed it, which is a real shame (and I’m as big a LOTR fan as they come), because when it comes to the acting, cinematography, storytelling and the general historical accuracy of M&C, my god I’ve seen it probably a dozen times and each time I notice something new about it, and I somehow find myself even more in awe at how stupendous it is. Probably the most underrated film of all time.

I have seen this film at least 3x more than the op. and I STILL notice something new everytime I watch it. In my own top live action movie list, this was the movie that took #1 from The Shawshank Redemption, which had been my favorite for most of the previous decade. I had seen The Shawshank Redemption enough times to literally be able to quote at least one line from any single scene in the movie (more likely I could give more than half the dialogue for any given scene). For anything to top that is one hell of an achievement and so far only Master & Commander has done this. Along with that, Master & Commander reignited my passion for tall ships which had been waning in the years prior to its release.

Last of the Mohicans was filmed not too far from where I live. A guy I used to work with was an Am Rev reenactor and was hired as an extra. The casting director saw the value in using background extras that were basically a group of historians that understood how soldiers of that time would behave. My coworker loved every minute of it and treasured the experience.

Read Patrick Obrien's 20 book series if you liked the movie. The movie is just part of one book. 'The Far Side of the World'. The books follows Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin through most of their career. Excellent books, far greater than the movie. But the movie is my favorite of all time.

Read the books! About 8000 pages in them. Then watch the movie again. You'll discover so much more about this fascinating way of life. They take me a couple years to read usually. But each time I'm sad when they're finished. O'Brien passed away before he could finish I believe.

Return of the King had to crush it at the Oscars that year because they had already given them such little credit for Fellowship of the Ring and the Two Towers. The Academy really just voted it as a trilogy and waited until the end to finally give it its due.

Watching Master and Commander in theaters was incredible.. the sound alone was unforgettable. First thing I told myself when I walked out of the theater.. Imagine this level of detail and authenticity / Hollywood blockbuster budget for a Trafalgar movie.
ClausJesup 4 meses atrás
Well, that would have to be a totally different level of budget. In M&C there are just two small actions between two frigates. Trafalgar was a fleet action involving some 50 ships of the line. It's not jus a question of how to put it all onto the screen - CGI has evolved a bit since M&C came out. But how to tell the story of this battle without totally confusing the viewer? I mean - 50 ships. That's a lot to digest for the avarage viewer. It would end up like one of these Marvel end battles where dozens of nameless monsters throw lightning bolts at each other.

Last of the Mohicans has some of the best night time photography I've ever scene. Most movies that had outdoor night scenes (especially in the 90s and earlier) either did "day for night" filming with a filter on the lens, or had floodlights shining on everything. The cinematography in Last of the Mohicans looks like nighttime, and doesn't feel like it's artificially illuminated.

As someone who lived in Camden, SC, has been to historic Camden, and who's father's favorite movie is The Patriot, how did I not know I was watching the Battle of Camden this entire time. We would find horseshoes and coins when we would dig in the backyard. Truly amazing to be on the same soil as the battle.

When it comes to Pirates of the Carribean, while _normal_ pirates would most likely not attack Port Royal, or any other similarly fortified location, one must take the supernatural side of the pirate crew being undead into account in this specific scene.

The problem is in mostly western people more then film makers. The Marvel Heroes and Pokemon media community so far is the worst. Anyway many religiously treat movies as reality and being toxic about it, convincing everyone they are right. The younger the generation the more and more idiotic it is. Through 90s, 00s and about 10 years ago I met plenty of lovely people for the most part but the newer the year the more and more toxic idiots I run into. Can't even count how many people I had to block online from 2015 onwards because we couldn't had a normal conversation about anything. They were all just spamming crap, walls of incoherent text, lies from clickbait sources and fake news, control freaks and mostly being just attention whores. Too many mentally unstable people and neglected children being stuck online.

Nope. He was analyzing Pirates of the Carribbean as a serious battle -- and not recognizing that the pirates were undead -- so could afford to "loose men" because they didn't. Clearly he never watched either The Patriot or Pirates in full. That makes the analysis trashy.

Even though Master and Commander wasnt a big hit upon release, I believe it's a movie that will be seen as a timeless classic. The tension between singled-minded determination beyond the call of duty and the unbreakable bonds of friendship is a universal theme while the pacing and small character moments are all emotionally impactful. All the characters are well-defined and distinct. Plus the sailing and combat footage is unbeatable.

Overjoyed to see all the love that Master and Commander is getting in the comments here. It is an outstanding film that didn't receive the recognition it deserved when it was released. IMO it stands head and shoulders above all other 'war films.' It gives us more than bloody battles and action, we're treated to genuine character depth and development. Acting, directing, score, sound, cinematography - all note perfect. Peter Weir is a genius.

Many years ago, I was an assistant curator at the USS Constitution Museum. When I saw this film, I was enthralled from the beginning. The darkness, the creaking wood of the ship, and the battle scenes were so spot on I could barely believe it. Master and Commander is on my top ten list of must-see movies. I really enjoyed your analysis of this and the other films. And I still believe that The Patriot was bunk.

As a young boy growing up in southern Ontario many years ago, it was James Fenimore Cooper and his "Last of the Mohicans" that captured my imagination. As I got older and found out that this novel was not only based in history but written during that very era, my interests turned to learning as much as I could about the history of this part of the world. Truly fascinating stuff.

@Martin Wilson I think it’s hard to say that the book was written in the same era given it was 70 years later. Era suggests commonality of experience and life time. Cooper was born in 1789, more than thirty years after the war he wrote about and he wrote about it in a different century.
Tom McEwan
Tom McEwan 9 meses atrás
The thing that's so frustrating about the film, beautifully made though it is, is that Cooper was a definite Anglophile, whereas the screenwriter and/or director clearly had an altogether different opinion about the British and didn't hold back from showing it, altering basically all of the British characterisations to make them entirely worse people than as originally written, not to mention including a lot of fiery revolutionary rhetoric about 20 years and a generation earlier than one would really expect to hear it, and that just isn't in the book at all, IIRC.

One thing Master and Commander does that I have never seen in any other movie, is having sound move slower than light, at the start of the movie the French frigate is seen in the distance and you see the flashes of the cannon and then after a delay you hear the sound. It's also the only movie I've seen that has actors of the right age and diversity (as the navy at the time was actually very diverse), it's the only time I've heard mention the standard practice of loading more than one cannon ball in the gun at a time, having the cannons fly backwards when fired and using the correct terminology throughout the movie.

When I was in the U.S. Army in 1992 after coming back to Germany from Desert Storm, I had the luck and fortune to visit the Waterloo battlefield and museums before being reassigned to Texas. It was really cool and some of the farmhouse budlings were still there from when it was fought, and they would still find bayonets and swords that got buried in mud and such.

Fun fact about the squares 'breaking' in the Waterloo movie: the squares weren't supposed to be break - the Soviet soldiers who were hired as extras for the movie actually fled in terror (in real life!) from the cavalry mock-charging them. Just goes to show - even Soviet soldiers, who knew they weren't facing a real cavalry charge, still broke in terror at the sight and sound of the horses coming towards them. Now imagine the bravery and discipline it took for the British to hold those squares - unbroken - against thousands of enemy cavalry charging in earnest.
EmperorSigismund Anos atrás
I've heard a not disimiliar story from an re-enactor in a large early medieval battle with several hundred participants. The enemy general used a hill crest to hide the size of his forces then revealed them up close to intimidate the other side. The re-enactors panicked and withdrew inwards creating a crush in the middle where nobody could move their shields or weapons and they were simply pushed over in one swoop.

@EmperorSigismund As a teenager I did Red Cross duty at a show jumping event, and even though there was a barrier between the first aiders and the action in the arena, sometimes a horse would pass very close, and even when not at the gallop, you got a tremendous sense of its weight and power. If I'd been in one of those squares I'd have wanted to run too, movie or no movie.

Yeah, the training of the troops was completely different during the line tactics era. I guess, the first reflex of a modern soldier at the sight of danger is to spread out and lie low. Back then it was to keep formation and try to be as high as possible (hence the high hats) for a horse to consider you an impassable obstacle.

Master And Commander I think is a masterpiece of film. Such a shame that it didn't do that well at the box office as three of them were planned but the two sequels were scrapped. It is just great film making. I think there is a sequel or prequel that they are working on right now.

For those wishing to truly experience all of Master and Commander, I would suggest if allowed on here, to listen to the Audible un-abridged renditions. If you don’t have time to read, or find 18th century nautical terms difficult… the spoken version is perfect for a commute. Patrick Tull, a well known British actor, does a fantastic job of bringing Aubrey and crew to life!!! All 21 books are available and you feel like you are on deck, between decks, and right there for all of the action!

Master an Commander is one of those gems of cinematography that will still be awe-inspiring in 50 years. It's wonderfully written, the cast is superb and the attention to detail makes my history nerd's heart sing every time I watch it. The emotions it causes are unique, it's dramatic and tragic and uplifting and carries itself with an air of dignity and duty no other movie manages to achieve. I'll never grow tired of it.

I dont know if it's still there but the ship they used was a retrofitted(to fit cameras a crew a little better) actual ship of the line and it's moored at the front of the maritime museum in San Diego California, not far from the USS Midway (another great visit, i highly suggest. I even served a change of command aboard that carrier as my small boy was in dry dock for pre deployment repairs) any way, if the world ever changes, i suggest a visit.

I love the movie. But of course it makes concessions to "golden plot rules" too. For instance, a single French ship almost able to win Napoleonic Wars single-handedly? 😜 I almost expected Darth Vader to appear at her helm at that moment. But on the whole, this is a movie definitely to be appreciated, especially in the times of generic pulp and political correctness frenzy...

I'm very pleased to see A LOT of love for Master and Commander in these comments. It's easily one of the best films of the century thus far. It's about as close to flawless as any film can get; I wouldn't change a frame. Technically Master and Commander could have been made by another director. But Peter Weir was really the only person equipped to make it into a masterpiece. As a director his style, sensibilities, and overall disposition fit the material perfectly.

The Last of the Mohicans really got me into history as a kid, I didn't know anything about The French and Indian War but when my father showed me the movie I was all in. Historic movies are so critical to getting people more interested in history, Its a real shame when historical battles are just given the veneer of a battle when real history can be displayed.

I’m so baffled by the fact that Waterloo didn’t come up in my Film classes in college. That shot at 24:23 is _exceptional_ and must have cost an absolute fortune in 1970. The opening shot of Chinatown is regarded as a masterpiece but it came out in 1974. I feel like I’ve been lied to in a weird way.

The opening shot of Chinatown is regarded as a masterpiece? Really? A guy looking at photos of his wife in coitus with another man? Somebody said that was filmmaking in its highest form? Great movie, though, and comparing it to Waterloo is simply comparing apples and oranges. Waterloo is just a war film made on a massive scale. Chinatown is a whole different creature. In terms of filmmaking on a massive scale, Waterloo doesn't hold a candle to the artistic merit of a film like, say, Lawrence of Arabia (made in 1962).

The chaos, the noise, and utter terror of that first battle. I have seen it 20 times easily and it still give me chills. Also great story and great movie in general.

The only inaccuracy that I noticed the first time I watched it on DVD was the older Midshipman. At his age, if connected, he would have been promoted to Lieutenant and put on a shore command, shuffling papers until he left the Navy. If not connected, he would have been "encouraged" to leave the Navy! He wouldn't have been on the ship at all!

@Tim Engineman 2nd I can't remember if it's in the movie or in the books, but I remember that one of Aubrey's headaches was how to handle the older midshipman once they made it back to an admirality port.
Lilith 5 meses atrás
@Tim Engineman 2nd The surgeon boarding the enemy vessel at the end and engaging in a halfhearted sword fight, instead of being up to his elbows in blood and guts in the sick bay seems more than a bit inaccurate to me. Also, during the big naval battle at the end, Jack and his English crew use French naval techniques (attacking mast and sails instead of attacking the hull, English style).

I've never seen Waterloo, but I feel like I should.

Also, those overhead shots are amazing and they tell so much of the story! That's also something I've never seen in more modern movies.

When I was about 9 or 10 we had a family camping vacation to New York State and visited Fort Ticonderoga and Fort William Henry. Both were impressive to my young mind of the time. The Battle of Waterloo wasn’t just a single battle but 4 battles with the last as depicted here. In the late 1970’s Simulation Productions had sold a board game of the campaign, I still have it. The 4 map boards connected to play out the campaign.

It's really nice to see scenes in some movies that accurately show cannon recoiling when they are fired. Sadly, some directors apparently never heard of Newton's Third Law of Motion. Also, The Patriot appears to depict Mel Gibson and his sons using long rifles, which would be probable for militia of that era. The long rifle was not only more accurate than the British muskets, but also greatly outranged them. I greatly enjoyed your comments and opinions on these great movie scenes and look forward to more in the future.

Love the commentary. I am unfamiliar with British Army tactics of the time, but I always wondered if the ambush scene in the Patriot had happened in real life, if the red coats would not have simply charged on foot rather than take time to reload at short range against a smaller force firing from cover.

@risingeagle012 Because it's recognisable to casual fans and viewers of the channel.

The decent "age of sail" and 19th century war movies/series we enjoy, such as Master & Commander, Hornblower, The Duel, Sharpe etc, probably don't feature on the casual BRvidr's radar, so you need tof throw them a bone like PotC to get them interested.

I think (without knowing too much about the Modern Era) Master and Commander is accurate not only in battle, but also in the role of a leader. During the film he has to make choices; some better than others; and he also has to compromise in an effort to take care of morale, being at the edge of mutiny.

At time mark 31:06 in the Battle of Waterloo, Dan said there's Marshal Ney, but it was Wellington (played by Christopher Plummer) in the picture. So Dan was obviously watching something else, that we could not see. Also when Dan spoke about the French Imperial Guard, we see Blucher advancing with his Prussian army. Great performance in this film by Plummer as Wellington, Rod Steiger as Napoleon, and Jack Hawkins as General Sir Thomas Picton. And an honourable mention to the Soviet Red Army, dressing up in their thousands as the soldiers on both sides. Trivia: I have walked across the battle field accompanied by the great great great granddaughter of one of Napoleon's Generals.

Astro Jenkins It’s not the expert that ruins your movies.
