So let’s continue with a little labor of love your Keeper discovered on YouTube and takes no responsibility for as far as its’ creation. I enjoyed how well edited it is and how it shows some of the best of the friendship between Jack and Stephen.
Now that you’re in full Master and Commander mode – if you weren’t already – relax with your beverage of choice and enjoy what we hope will tempt you to rewatch this wonderful movie!
What follows in the next video is a wonderful compilation of what might have been.
I’m guessing after all these years, we will never see an extended version of a movie which deserves one.
When the video is concluded, take a moment to read some of the comments regarding the deleted material. Among these includes:
This film did not receive the credits it deserves! Very excellent film

And of course, last, but certainly, not least:
