Been waiting for this historical setting for some time now
I’ve always fantasized about this naval period. This movie gave me the chance to experience this strange deceptive era in theatrical form.
The young republic, striving to establish and maintain strong trading routes, are flawed by who they thought were their allies all along. Physically and mentally provoked and by three nations at once, it goes to show that a country can indeed establish itself through courage, determination and wit.
Long as the film was, I found it a wonderful experience to watch from start to finish. I didn’t expect to see scenes in England, let alone ones containing the mad monarchist King James II. What a mentalist.
Many scenes featuring the Dutch King Willem II and admiral Tromp were simply captivating to the point that I felt I was actually living the moment in that era.
Michiel de Ruyter, has definitely won a place in my heart and I will definitely be watching this one again someday.
Riveting and Beautifully Shot Historical Drama
Easily one of the best historical epics ever made. This film tells the tale of one of the Netherlands’ greatest national heroes Michiel de Ruyter, who valiantly defended his country from powerful foes in the 17th century. The film explores intricate political intrigue in the Netherlands of the time, where the royalist faction supporting William, Prince of Orange, plotted against those who wanted the country to remain a republic. Against this difficult background, Admiral de Ruyter leads the Dutch fleet against English and French armadas to save the Netherlands from a disaster of foreign occupation. The naval battle scenes are spectacular and beautifully filmed. Excellent acting work from the entire cast, where historical figures starting from de Ruyter himself and then on to Grand Pensioner de Witt, Prince William, King Charles II of England, admirals Maarten and Cornelis Tromp and many others come alive. The film crew also took a painstaking effort to recreate the settings and the atmosphere of early modern-age Netherlands for a truly immersive experience. Loved the passing shot of Rembrandt, nonchalantly carrying a painting through the streets of Amsterdam. The film reflects true love of Dutch history, not afraid to acknowledge both the glorious and the horrific aspects. If I were Dutch, seeing this film would make me really proud of the country and its heroes. Well done!!!
The longer Dutch version of the film called Michiel de Ruyter is more coherent and logical than the abridged version released to English-speaking audiences as Admiral, so I would recommend trying to get one’s hands on the full movie, i.e. on DVD, even if it means reading English subtitles without dubbing. The full version is about 2 hours 31 minutes long, the short one is 2 hours 8 minutes. It is unfortunate that most international digital movie services carry just the abridged version, would be good to get both options.
