Rating this 3 stars is probably a little high.......2 1/2 might be more apropos. Poor old Peter O'Toole sort of walks through his part as do the rest. The "continuity" factor is lacking - the four hours is nothing more than a series of "soapy" vignettes. We thought it should be called "The Winds of War Meets Downton Abbey".
Pretty weak, but entertaining. The cinematography is stunning and if you've ever been on the Cornish Coast you will recognize some sights.
