There is a YouTube channel called History Buffs. I occasionally watch the videos as the channel owner reviews movies about historical events and topics.

In 2016 he reviewed Master and Commader: The Far Side of the World, starring Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany. Billy Boyd (Pippin in The Lord of the Rings) also had an important role in the movie.

I saw this movie in the theater when it came out in 2003. It was an incredible production and I still love to watch it from time to time. This movie has withstood the test of time and I think this History Buffs video touches on all the great reasons why it does.
I am surprised this movie didn’t do good at the box office. What is wrong with people?
I don't think the movie was promoted very well. People who watched movies regularly probably had no idea of what it was about.
