Ioan Gruffudd (Titanic) returns to action as C.S. Forester's swashbuckling naval hero Horatio Hornblower in this lavishly produced continuation of A&E's Emmy® Award-winning series. Following his rapid rise through the ranks of the King's Navy during the tumultuous years of the Napoleonic Wars, Hornblower's latest adventures chart a course for unexpected peril as he confronts deadly new adversaries -- on both land and sea. MUTINY: After being forced to deal with a brutal captain who is rapidly going insane, Hornblower is treatened with a court-martial and hanging. RETRIBUTION: With the insane captain imprisoned and an incompetent lieutenant in charge, Hornblower must lead a strike force to recapture an enemy fort.

Return to the high seas with two more scintillating adventures starring Ioan Gruffudd as C. S. Forester's dashing naval hero. Crafted and helmed by the Emmy®-winning team behind the acclaimed, original series, HORATIO HORNBLOWER: THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES features two full-length movies.

This 2-volume DVD set includes the following episodes:
Horatio Hornblower: The Adventure Continues DVD set:

  • The Mutiny
  • Retribution

    As The Mutiny opens, Hornblower is languishing in a prison cell in Kingston, Jamaica, jailed for his role in removing the deranged Capt. Sawyer from his command aboard the HMS Renown. Visited by Capt. Pellew, his former commander and mentor, Hornblower revisits the harrowing events that have brought him to face court martial.

    The saga continues in Retribution, as Hornblower reveals to the court the details of an assault on a Spanish fort that succeeded in large part because of his gallantry. Despite these heroics, Hornblower's fate remains in question--until a surprise witness removes the shadow of doubt cast across the young sailor by Captain Sawyer and his cronies.
