Trivia

One of the classic ships used in production of this movie a an accurate replica of "De Batavia". This is in fact a cargo ship, which sunk of the coast of Australia 1629. The building of this replica took place at the "Bataviawerf" in Lelystad, The Netherlands and was finished in 1995. The next project was a replica of Michiel de Ruyters actual ship "De Zeven Provincien" but this build has stalled due the lack of funds. See more »

Brilliant movie
10 June 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie and I was truly amazed how good and powerful this is. It made me to go to Wikipedia and do some reading about Michiel de Ruyter, because the things this man was able to achieve is simply nothing short of spectacular.

It really feels like those big budget Hollywood movies it has huge sea battles, great and really believable acting also the CGI is pretty good. For those who liked the character of Tywin Lannister played by Charles Dance, well you'll find him here as a King Charles II of England.

I can't recommend this movie enough, just go and watch it and you'll be amazed as well. I never give anything 10 out of 10, but this one came very close to it. Let's say 9.7.
