The opening scene of "Master and Commander" is about the best it can ever be done. You can literally read thoughts...Well, at least I can...of the principal leaders. If you haven't seen this absolutely fantastic movie, I suggest you do so forthwith. I seriously have nothing bad to say about this movie.

The ammount of masterful gamesmanship, backstabbing and how a coveted leader can de ball a subordinate by a very small action can be seen very clearly all within a few moments.

My god I love this movie.

i thought it was spectacular. The only annoying thing is the wildly varying volume levels.

It's an average movie. The only part I really liked was the Dr. doing his Darwin thing.

It's not Citizen Kane but it's a reasonably good old style action movie. I thought it was an excellent study in military leadership.
