The epic saga of Horatio Hornblower, the legendary sea-faring hero, comes to life in these films based on C.S. Forester's classic novels. Set against the bloody backdrop of the Napoleonic wars, Hornblower charts a course for high adventure following the raw recruit as he battles the French, evades capture, and rises through the ranks of the King's Navy. With a powerful performance by Ioan Gruffudd (Titanic) in the title role, Horatio Hornblower brings C.S. Forester's classic tales to life in all their swashbuckling glory.
