This film was interesting for me for a few reasons: usually in this genre I'm rooting for the English vs the French but I was rooting for the Dutch vs everyone in this one, which was a pleasant change, the main historical events were ones I was unfamiliar with, and the film referenced many famous artworks from the period.
A really unfortunate and compelling story based on true historical events, with some embellishments both historically and cinematographically. The ship fight scenes were somewhat unrealistic with a lot of slow motion and wood explosions, which felt overproduced compared to other films like Master & Commander.
Bestaevar de Ruyter!
