    It's a wonderfully crafted work, handsome, lively, stirring and utterly convincing in its depiction of the perils and thrills of sea life. But I'm not sure that my personal enthusiasm for it will translate entirely for viewers whose favorite movie about the high seas is, for perfectly good reasons, "Pirates of the Caribbean."

    Master and Commander hooks you from its nifty opening salvo to its nifty closing punch line.

    Isn't just a fabulous seagoing spectacle. It's one for the ages.
