The Review

All ships are unsinkable, until they sink. In the 17th century the Netherlands consisted of the Orangists and the Republicans who in this time period were the only republic in all of Europe. Wanting to seize control, England, France and Germany sent battleships to attack the Dutch. Prime minister Johan de Witt convinces Captain Michiel de Ruyter to become Admiral of the Dutch fleet and lead them into battle. Ruyter has always put his country first, sometimes even before family. But what happens when honesty and loyalties are tested from all parties involved? Will the Dutch be able to keep their freedom? Or will the entire European union be at risk? This film will get your blood pumping with nonstop action, anger, sadness and the cold hard truth between politics and war. You will not want to miss the realistic battle scenes in this foreign film. This movie is based on the actual historical events following captain Ruyter’s road to fame.
