Horatio Hornblower embodies things that many people today have forgot about: honor, fellowship, and duty. I am quite honored to have had the opportunity to see these movies and I really want to read the books now. I really hope that they will continue to make more of the stories into movies. It is more possible than not, since Ioan has been quoted to have said, "I would love to play this character through every stage of his life. I think it would be unique to have an actor playing him from the very early days as a midshipman; through till he's an Admiral. So, I would love to play this character till he perishes." All fans of this series (both book and movies) should pray for a return soon. I don't know about others, but I really need to see how Horatio handles his next adventure (reference to the last scene of Duty).
One quick word about Ioan...perfect actor for Horatio. Many thanks to those that cast him.
Lastly, I want to urge everyone to watch all these movies. thank you
