Poll: Greatest Naval Battle on Screen

Throughout history, sea power has shaped the power of nations in wartime and in peace. It's not surprising that movies featuring historic battleships and heroic naval battles were very popular in the 40s, 50s and 60s.

The war-at-sea genre has been in decline for the remainder of the 20th century, but showed a remarkable revival since 2000 with the introduction of CGI and other special effects related technology.

Which historic naval sea battle or campaign from a movie released after 2000 is your favorite?
