Looking at the poster with the ship, raging sea and Russell Crowe one might not guess that this is a film about comradely, friendship and duty...all set aboard a British sailing ship the H.M.S.
Aside from the occasional classical music used in the couple scenes where Jack and his doctor friend play instruments together (Russell Crowe actually learned violin for this movie which is fantastic), the music really takes a backseat for most of the movie.
I think that there was a (failed) attempt to transfer what was happening on the screen to affect the viewer. The storm was a good example of this, instead of feeling cold and “weathered”, I felt annoyed....
